Our expert says:
It is possible that you are suffering from gastroenteritis. You have to consult your doctor for an examination, blood tests and a stool analysis. The blood in your stools are most likely due to a small mucosal tare of the opening at the anus, due to the increased pressure/irritation when you passed the difficult stool or due to the piles but other possibilities have to be excluded.
If you are over 50 years of age, it will be a good idea to have a colonoscopy done.
