Vics1982 Posted February 22 Report Share Posted February 22 Hi all, I’m having symptoms of something and they are driving me crazy and starting to take over my life, looking for advice and support and to see if anyone else has similar. I haven’t had a diagnosis of IBS yet, but I have have symptoms on and off for the past 2 years. Symptoms ramped up in July 2022 and more recently I have had symptoms constantly for the last 8 weeks, these are: Pooing several times a day, for the past 2 years this has mostly been unformed and like hummus. Recently I’ve been going between pooping 5-6 times a day which is soft, to the next day it is really hard and inky going once, sometimes when it is harder it’s a little flatter in appearance. I have lower right side abdo crampy pains. I often need to poop straight after eating, which is super annoying! I have lower back pain near coccyx that feels worse when sitting down and also if I clench my bum cheeks, I have pain which almost feels like a muscular pain in my bum. I have a burning, itching, raw, sore pain around my anus and into my rectum, that is there all the time, this feels really raw when I’m pooping, it feels really swollen and I always have the sensation of needing a poo. My anus almost feels wet at times too. Wind sometimes feels stuck in anus and this often is painful when it passes. my tummy always feels bloated. I have had a FiT test in November 2022 which was normal and a colonoscopy in 2021 that showed some diverticula disease. Any help and advice would be great as I’m really struggling and getting worried. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
