hi, i have health anxiety and ibs also, i know how you feel. I'm going through a partcularly difficult time at the moment. I've also had problems on and off with piles, at the moment i'm being treated for piles but my anxiety is sky high. I would think if you've been told that you have piles then there is good chance that they are causing the bleeding. Do you have any pain or discomfort while having a bowel movement? maybe you should go to your gp just to confirm that they are causing the bleeding. Hope you feel better soon.
