Passing Blood Clots
0

9 posts in this topic

Hello,

I had a negative biopsy a while back, although the specilist did say there was some inflammation, i was diagnosed with IBS. Since then i have'nt been gluten free (im a student and really cant afford it). The last few days i have been passing blood clots/balls. The first day i had urgency and went to the toilet separte from my stools was a ball of blood. I went on to have diarrhoea 3 more times that day and felt very week and hot for an hour. last night i woke up with stomach cramps/pain and this morning i had muesli for breakfast i straight away had stomach pain and urgency however i only passed wind and another blood clot no stool, one minute later i had urgency again and passed a bigger ball of blood (about the size of two peas) 3minutes laster i had urgency and passed a stool (no blood). Since then i have stomach pain (mild-moderate) for 3hours ongoing, i have taken co-codamol but can still feel it.

Im really worried about this blood, has anyone with celiac experienced this. My mum has had bowel problems all her life (never been tested for celiac) three years ago she heamorrhaged from her bowel and they never found a course she lost pints of blood and was critical, it hasn't happened since.

Is bleeding a symptom of celiac because i'm sure this cant be IBS i think thats just my specialist's way out as i havnt had an endoscopy and only a gastroscopy down my throat with four biopsies. The bleeding is not a completely new things i have had blood running through the cracks of my stools since march but not clots/balls.

I have been checked for heamrroids (poor spelling).

Any information would be great thank you.

It would be a good idea to check with your personal physician on this...there are many reasons why persons pass blood clots...

Many times they want to do a Colonoscopy to check up on things... just a look see up there to make sure things are "A OK"....

Bleeding like that can be caused by hemorrhoids, polyps and other conditions...so it is very important that your Dr. know this...

Hope you feel better...

Thanks for the reply

I have spoken to my specialist's secretary today as he is not in till tomorrow and hopefully he will bring my appointment forward from january. I have already been checked for hemorrhoids although im not sure what polyps is?

Is this not a symptom of celiacs then?

I am not a Dr but I have not heard of this as a symptom of Celiac. I would strongly urge you to see your dr asap. Better safe than sorry! Go to your school's health center if you cant get in to see your doctor.

My best friend has Ulcerative Colitis...started when she was 24. If you look it up it is common to flare or start in your 20's to 30's. She had a colonoscopy that confirmed it. She would have a little blood in her stool - but always the "urgency". That is one of the big indicators even if you do not produce alot - the urgency along with mucous or blood in the stool. She said she was told not to eat things that were hard to digest such as corn or seeds as well. She is otherwise very healthy. You should google search it and see if you have any similarities then bring it up to the doc.

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply, i have wondered about this and have called my specialist and will be requesting a colonoscopy. My stomach pain has not gone away all day which is unusual for me and i have taken 30/500 cocodamol. As their was inflammation on the biopsy im wondering if my large bowel is inflammed too and IBD could be the problem. The only thing is when i think about these things part of my mind always flicks back the the positive celiac blood test. The urgency blood and mucus has been the main syptoms for months along with bad wind pains and stomach cramps. Does your friend get stomach pain? i notice in your signature you have IBS how are my symtoms in relation to yours?

If you had a postive blood test you are celiac. Inflammation can often be found on the endo and the damage to the villi can be spotty and missed with the biopsies. You should have been told to give the diet a strict try after the endo. There are no false positives on blood tests but lots of false negatives. I would get on the diet ASAP.

I did have a great deal of mucous before diagnosis but for me the bleeding and passing clots didn't start until after I had been gluten-free for a while. Now when I get glutened I usually pass clots for about 3 days. I don't think it is a common symptom though. You do need to get it checked out, and IMHO you need also to get on the diet.

Hi, just thought i'd give you all an update.

I went to see my specialist yesterday as an emergency visit, due to concern over the blood clots. He felt my tummy and said he would like to do some more blood tests and an ultrasound and colonoscopy. His train of thought at the moment is that it could be inflammatory bowel disease crohns/ulcerative colitis. I asked him about the positive blood test for celiac to see if it could mean anything else and he informed me that a positive for this test could also point to inflammatory bowel disease. I had read this in research yesterday, was anybody else aware of this?

Ravenwoodglass, i believe that the positive blood test means something too and if the next investigations dont show anything up im going to go with a gluten free diet, even though it does cost a packet (better than feeling like this). First id like to get the blood clot situation checked out as iv been informed this is not really a symptom of celiac.

Thanks for all your advice and comments

Glad your doctor is helping with this. If you are done with testing for celiac you can start the diet anytime. You don't have to wait until after the colonscopy as that is not a test for celiac. If by any chance the issue is gluten related you may find you have relief before they even scope.

    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
