New here. I have suffered from anxiety induced IBSD for several years. Almost only have symptons during periods of heightened stress and anxiety. This happened again, beginning in February, but has lasted much longer than normally. The past two days, I have noticed what looks like blood seeping from my stools into the toilet. I have also been sleeping more than normal and excessively fatigued. The tiredness could be from my erratic work/travel schedule the past couple weeks, but even though I've been sleeping so much, I'm just still so tired all day long.


I know I should just go straight to a doctor but I recently lost my health insurance so can't really afford it. Also worried if its something serious, that it would be a preexisting condition on a new plan whenever I can get one.


Anyone have any ideas? Should I be really worried?

It could be Hemorrhoids, Chrons, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, or in a worst case scenario Cancer. It's important that you get this checked put by a doctor. You should try to get insurance and I Sundance companies have to cover pre-existing conditions.
