    The last couple of days I've noticed that I have blood in stool. Not a huge amount but about the size of a quarter.

    Is this something that goes along with fibro?

    No- blood in your stool indicates something else is going on. It could be something as minor (although they hurt like the dickens) as a fissure or a hemorhoid (even internal), but if it continues, please get it checked out with a Dr.
    It is fresh blood or does it look otherwise?

    I've also had problems urinating. I will have to go but nothing will go. I haven't even gotten up in the middle of the night to go and even when I wake up in the morning I can't go.

    Janalynn: It is fresh red blood. I didn't know you could have inernal hemorhoids.

    Charlene: I've never had a colonoscopy. I'm 39 years-old so I figure that will happen in the upcoming years.

    Kina: Thank you. I will call the dr.'s office tomorrow.

    I had the same thing a couple of yrs ago. BM was streaked w fresh blood. I had several different tests done and then a colonoscopy.

    All they found was internal hemms, and gave me Miralax to help w constipation. It was scary tho having to have all those tests, but at least I got to sleep thru the colonoscopy.
