Stool: Should I be worried about internal bleeding?
I have an appointment with a specialist at the end of the month. I am at work now and had a sharp stabbing pain in one spot in my upper stomach for a few seconds. Possibly an ulcer but I’ve never had anything like this so I don’t know

@jadillow I'm glad to hear you will be seeing a specialist. If something is wrong you can find out then, and if not it will set your mind at ease. I hope you will let us know what you hear when you go.
Jadillow, do you take ibuprofen by chance? It causes internal bleeding. I used to take it
A lot and it caused a bleed in my small intestine. They had to cauterize my small intestine to stop the bleeding. I was weak for months after that.
