My husband is having a burning sensation & occasional blood while passing stools. He's got an history of 1st stage severe gastritis. Could that be the reason for this burning sensation? should he modify his diet? What could be the reason?
Hello and thank you for posting your health query on E health Forum.
From the history provided here, presence of burning sensation or pain and blood in stools during defecation indicates a wide range of problems ranging from anal fissures, hemorrhoids, etc.
Blood in stools could also be due to peptic ulcers, intestinal polyps, inflammatory bowel disorders, etc.
Stress and anxiety disorders can also such burning sensation.
You might consider getting your husband examined, by a doctor will help, as a complete history will elicit more needed history to make a definitive diagnosis. In addition blood tests and a stool examination will be necessary too.
