I have pain in the left side just below my breast all that way to the back. When I go to the bathroom, my stool has blood. It has been bleeding for two days, even without a bowel movement. The bleeding is in my anus. If I drink oregano team, then it will stop. But, will start bleeding after some time. What could it be? Can it be due to a bleeding ulcer? I have a previous history of gastritis. My regular medicines include Metformin ER 500 mg and Fluoxetine 20 mg.
