my husband is 33 yrs and a couple days ago he started coughing up blood then it stopped and a few minutes later his nose Started bleeding i thought it was just a bloody nose until the other night he had bloody stool and now he is having stabbing pains in his lower left side what should he do?
Presence of bleeding from the nose and hemoptysis (blood while coughing) and painful bleeding from the intestines (seen as blood in stools) could be a indicator of a serious infection or a inflammatory condition.
You might consult with your doctor and undergo a few tests including a complete hemogram, a peripheral blood smear, coagulation profile, stool examination, urinalysis and a ultrasound of the abdomen. These tests will help in diagnosis of the underlying medical cause of your symptoms, which can be duly treated by your doctor.
