What does dark blood in stool mean?
Bright red blood usually means bleeding that's low in your colon or rectum. Dark red or maroon blood can mean that you have bleeding higher in the colon or in the small bowel. Melena (dark and tar-like stool) often points to bleeding in the stomach, such as bleeding from ulcers.
How serious is a stomach bleed?
Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is a symptom of a disorder in your digestive tract. The blood often appears in stool or vomit but isn't always visible, though it may cause the stool to look black or tarry. The level of bleeding can range from mild to severe and can be life-threatening.
Does blood thinner cause bleeding?
Since blood thinners slow the clotting of blood, unwanted and sometimes dangerous bleeding can occur with the use of these medications. A person who takes blood thinners should tell their healthcare provider about any bleeding or unusual bruising they experience, as well as any serious falls or a hard bump to the head.
What are the symptoms of bleeding?
- Pale, cool, clammy skin.
- Fast heart rate.
- Low blood pressure.
- Death within seconds to minutes (in severe cases)
What medication increases the risk of bleeding?
Drugs That Increase Bleeding Risk Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are reported to inhibit the reuptake of serotonin into platelets, resulting in an increased risk of bleeding.
