Conditions with symptom: 'inflamed rectum'
a couple of weeks ago, i had a sharp pain whenever i went to the toilet, like half my rectum was missing. i felt a hard lump inside my rectum, which i though was the cause. The lump has now gone, but i haven't been to the toilet for about 5 days, and whenever i pass wind, i bleed from my rectum....... Any ideas?
This sounds like piles caused through straining. I'd buy some haemorrhoid cream, drink more water and eat more fibre.
I have multiple bowel movements throughout the day. The stools are thin, sometimes they have one side which is angular rather than round. I never feel that my rectum is completely empty and my vagina hurts after I have defecated, as though it were somehow attached to the rectum. I am kept awake at night by the pain from both vagina and rectum. Alternatively, if I have diarrhoea instead, my vagina then feels as though it is being stung by stinging nettles and I am unable to walk for the rest of the day.
Hey. I'm 23 with no kids or anything and I have exactly the same symptoms as you and I have been through all the tests (colonoscopy, defecating proctogram, anal manometry etc.) They concluded that I have rectal prolapse and rectocele, which basically means the rectum is prolapsing into the vagina. It can be fixed. In my case it looks like I'm having ventral rectopexy. Don't panic and look online forever until it gets worse, which is exactly what I did. Just go to the doctor go through the motions and they'll sort it out. Definitely too uncomfortable to carry on living with my love!
Im having tests for a prolapsed rectum, I cant pass stool whether its hard or soft without straining, then it feels like I havnt finished, I had a Laparascopic ventral mesh rectopexy 6 months ago, but things havnt improved. It gets so uncomfortable in the rectum, what can I do.
I am 14 and I have suffered from red inflamed spots on my forehead for about 8 - 10 months and they itch and when I put spot cream from my GP on the inflamed area the spots bulge and get reeder. How can I get rid of the acne?
If you have long hair, keep it off your forehead as much as possible AND DO NOT POP THEM! Wash your face twice daily, cut out all junk food and sugary drinks and drink plenty of water. Don't get stressed :) I used to have loads of spots on my face and body but, after a few months of switching up my diet and routine, I only have a few small bacne scars.
I just found out after 12 years, just by reading this article that I have a prolapsed rectum. It has bothered me before when going number 2, but I never thought much else of it. I am a 17 year old male and I just found this out. It now concerns me a lot. How do I get help? Also, I feel very messed up in the rectal and lower intestine area. I feel an uncomfortable numbness in the upper back area inside my rectum randomly every day. This greatly worries me. Is it a tumor? How do I find out?? Please help.
I seem to have a problem going to the toilet for the last 8 months. i seem to have to use my fingers to push upwards on the area between my vagina and anus to help get my poo out is this whats called a prolapse rectum. l have had tvt done a few years ago due to stress incontinence im 38years old and have five children my tvt has worked very well. I it is a prolapse rectum will i need surgery. I also suffer with memiplegic migraine can these two things be connected. I feel really embarrissed to talk to my doctor about this toilet problem.
Emma, dont be shy to speak to your GP.You will need a referral to see a Gastroenterologist. I believe a course of bowel retraining by a specialist nurse can help and you may not even need surgery. However,If you do not get 100% relief, then the colorectal team (surgeons) will take over. Goodluck!
I understand I have sim miler I avent been well since my girl was born 2007 afterbirth got stuck they rushed me to theatre injected my spine and gave me a manual extraction still not been fixed not fair is it x
Hii, im 15 and have like spots on the inside of my vagina, abit like yellow heads i leave them alone but it can sometimes become alittle agitated and inflamed. i doesnt hurt or isnt itchy or anything but i was wondering if its anything i need to be worried about or even if it might be thrush? Is there any creams i could use to make the spots less inflamed or even go away and do i need to worrie about it? Thank you. X X
Hey, I'm 22, and my tonsils have been inflamed for years, but I have no pain. I have noticed that they have vain like scars all over them and holes where I can squeeze pus out of, (gross I know) I spoke to a doctor and she said it was normal to have the pus and doesn't sound like tonsillitis. I catch tonsillitis frequently, and doctors never suggested having them removed, but they are now scared and constantly inflamed. Should I be concerned?
When my boyfriend was young he had an undescended testicle and had an operation to cure this. Since then his scar on his testicle has inflamed, it looks a little bit like a skin tag but is about 2cm in length and 2cm from the testicle. He won't go to the doctor's about this, but we're both worried it could be something other than an inflamed scar. Could this lead to health problems? or could this be something severe? Will this problem affect fertility?
I was told for years I had IBS. Two years ago I paid to see a consultant and was told I had diverticular disease. The constant pain and alternating bouts of diarrhoea/ small pellet like motions, absolute exhaustion, lack of concentration. The feeling that my rectum is dropping out when standing is ruining my life. I have also a vaginal prolapse and have a pessary inserted, I had a hysterectomy in 1976. I have to manually evacuate my rectum as my motions are so gundgy they seal it if not entirely cleared adding to the pain I have. Does anyone out there suffer these symptoms.
Have you had tests for a prolapsed bowel? I have all your symptoms and was diagnosed with diverticulitis a year after my hysterectomy in 2000. I have had the sigmoid colon removed and a resection which had many complications, Though I now still suffer from diverticulitis it is not as frequent. After some helpful physio for a prolapse bowel I can recommend that when you are on the toilet, put your feet on a low stool and lean forward with you elbows on your knees. You then need to take deep breaths using your diaphragm, if you try yawning taking deep breaths as you yawn, you will be using you diaphragm and will fell your abdomen moving rather than your chest and shoulders. This will help hard stools to move. Apparently we should all lean forward naturally anyway. It is the invention of toilets that stop our natural stance. If you think about crouching we automatically lean forward. This has been the best advice I had since my bowel problems began. Good luck. I would like to know how you get on.
I also suffer with diverticulitis - diagnosed 2010. Gas, constipation all the time. Then 2011 went to gasterentologist/surgeon to find out if anything could be done to help, had defacography told me to attend his wellness clinic, 8 sessions, on third visit nurse did a laser procedure for a "pocket" right at my rectum so I could evacuate better. I bled and could smell my own butt after that and dr. wouldn't see me because I quit his sessions! This made it worse, gas still a problem and now everyone at work can smell my butt too! Had to learn on my own how to evacuate completely in morning. I use gycerin suppositories if I don't feel like I had a complete evacuation. Sometimes, even that doesn't help and I get to work and the gas begins after sitting down for a while, which I cannot control long enough to get to the bathroom after that "procedure" for the pocket. Without a complete evacuation - then gas and pain. Evacuation sometimes consists of small pellets or even more bizzare, thin ribbon like sheets as if something has been smashed. I get pain on both lower sides. I have to take anitbiotics when the smell of the gas gets "horrible". I know I have infection then. But no dr. ever told me about that either...I found out on my own that antibiotics would make that horrible smell go away for awhile. Reading the post by Mary of bowel prolapse, I wonder if my problems began after my hysterectomy in 1995. If the divertic. is a result of incomplete evacuation. (I used to be regular like clockwork and no problems there) A few months after the hysterectomy, I experienced my first pain on my right side and the ribbon-like stool. If I jump around or stretch I feel the urge coming but sitting on the toliet... nothing! Get up and start walking...oops...gas! I went to a gynecologist recently and he said the pain and thin stool is a result of spasms! Finding a good doctor here is a challenge - I don't know who can help. I'm glad I read your posts!
