Boxgirl, you should still see a doctor on this, blood is not a symptom of IBS, it could be hemmies or something, but it would be a good idea to have it checked for sure.If its bright red blood it maynot be to serious, but never the less have your doctor look into it.

did they take a stool sample to check if the blood is on or in the stool? bright red means it's generally on the outside and from hemmies or fissures. inside is more serious. you should definitely get it completely checked out to make sure. I had this is April where there was a lot of blood and while I was pretty sure it was OK, I still called the doctor and she got me in right away. nancy

I had the same thing. And I was all worried about it so the Dr. sent me for a colonoscopy. Boy here I was thinking that I had a huge problem and he tells me that it is just interal hemmrhoids. Great huh. Bright red blood is not as urgent as darker older looking blood that could have started somewhere far up. Bright red means closer to the end. I hope you are all right!!!
