Just a quick question, hope ive put this in the right place.

I am currently bleeding from my backside, fresh red blood and i have been checked for piles an there are none. I was wondering what the heck it can be? has anyone ever had the same? My GP thinks I need the camera again any advise would be great!

Fresh blood, when not caused by piles or a fissure, is very common with/typical of ulcerative colitis but can happen with Crohns disease too. Have you got a diagnosis yet? What did the camera show the first time they had a look?

It could be Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Colitis. Are you on any meds?
Diagnosed July 2, 2009 Crohn's Colitis

Colon removed September 26, 2011.
Pathology showed UC instead of Crohn's.

I have arthritis that is very similar to RA, but not RA because I had UC.

Autoimmune related itch.

Meds: 15 mg/week Methotrexate for RA
Cetirizine for the itch
