  1. Thanks Jonathan. He tells me he's not thinking about anything sometimes when it happens but I'm betting he is.
  2. Thanks Ironman. I'm trying to narrow down if it's only when we aren't around. He doesn't seem to complain about it when he's busy doing something like playing outside.
  3. Hello all, Has anyone had a child that gets stomach aches maybe when getting nervous? My 7 year old son seems to have an attachment issue and gets stomach aches near the belly button but seems to be when we have to leave the room or when he thinks of something that makes him uneasy or nervous.
  4. Thanks to you both. It's still there and when I accidentally stretch that area, it seems to bleed a little. It's just a small red bump and now my mind is trying to take it and run and try to get me to think it's something really bad.
  5. Hey all, had a little red bump come up over the last day or so about an inch and a half below my anus. It seems tender and when I put some alcohol on it, it burned pretty good. It's pretty bright red and smaller than the end of my pinky. Does this sound like an abscess or maybe hemorrhoid? It does hurt just slightly.
  6. Thanks MotherofMaya. Yeah I had a CT scan about 11 months ago and they said bowels,colon and everything looked good. I think those cancers can take years to develop so I shouldn't be worrying so much.
  7. Okay so it was pretty obvious that it was blood
  8. What age did you start getting colonoscopies?
  9. Thanks Marc. Does that include some that might have had a reddish hue?
  10. Yeah this was a reddish hue that was on half of it but the toilet paper just showed brown. It's been more typical the last few times I've gone. Trying to put it out of mind.
  11. I'm just so afraid to even go to the bathroom again.
  12. Yeah I've been on here for years and love it. Wonderful people here. I'll just flush and go next time and not go looking for problems. I know we will have a little reddishness sometimes due to what we eat and I need to stop obsessing.
  13. Yeah people tell me to do that a lot too. My brother and wife just said it a few minutes ago actually, just flush and go. But they I also start to wonder what if I miss something. But I guess a lot of times, you're going to have other symptoms as well. I guess I'll start trying that though.
  14. I went again this afternoon and it seemed to be more a typical color.
  15. Hey all, Went to the restroom earlier and my bowel movement seemed to have a reddish hue to it I guess you could say. There were about 3 pieces and they all had brown and then a different color that almost leaned toward a reddish color. Now I'm freaked out. I had been doing better with my anxiety the last few days until this. I had some fried rice yesterday for lunch with sriracha sauce and then have had quite a bit of chocolate cake the last couple of days. I had ravioli with a lot of pasta sauce about 3 or so days ago too. I just don't know what to think. Does anyone else get this sometimes?
