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.

    • Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles
      I have been gluten free now since February and I recently purchased a box of Marshmallows Fruity Pebbles and looked at the ingredients (which none indicated gluten content), but am just wondering if anyone has had a problem with them. 
    • Test Results
      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it. 
    • Gardasil
      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
