Acid reflux + blood stool
I've been having acid reflux for quiet some months now. Also, I've seen blood in my stool sometimes. I went to see doctor he said it isn't a big deal and endoscopy/colonoscopy isn't required. I want to know what can be the factors causing my condition. And can this be non-serious. Should I get endoscopy done ?

If it's a single episode nothing to worry...if bleeding is profuse or frequent you better Consult nearest gastroenterologist.. For acid reflux try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can...Avoid foods that irritate your stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty... avoid coffee,tea etc... Stress may make your gastritis symptoms worse...Stress may be hard to avoid, but you can learn to cope with it. If you have trouble relaxing, consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga etc...sleep with head raised position and have dinner at least 2 hours before sleep..take over the counter medications with above..consulting doctor if symptoms persists.
