Sharp pain with bm, burning, blood in stool!!!!

I am expierencing sharp pain with b/M , like tryin to pass a razor blade. It has me dreading having to go to the bathroom. There is blood on my stool and on the toilet paper when im done, and i am feeling alot of pressure and burning and twitching around my rectum. Some times after my b/m i feel fine and then a couple hrs later i start to feel a burning feeling and the pressure and it lasts for a long time and then just fades away. It seems to worsen while sitting and lying down but walking seems to help calm things down. I have talked to somepeople who have expierenced similiar thinngs and they tell me to increase my fiber , drink lots of water, and take stool softeners and see if it helps, any ideas what the problem is and what can be done until i get to a doctor. I am without insurance for a while because of job changes and am trying to ease my pain untill i can see dr. This is really starting to cause me lost sleep and i am tired of being in pain or uncomfortable all the time.

Hi Roneevans,

I'm sorry to hear about your bowel problems. Presently, I am experiencing the same thing. Today, I will see my primary doc, who will then give me a referral to see my GI specialist, and from there, I'll have a colonoscopy in the first week of August. Whenever there is rectal bleeding it needs to be checked out. It could be hemroids, but to make sure, demand a colonoscopy. In the meantime, change your diet like you mentioned, also drink 2 to 3 liters a water a day, and try taking some metamucil, and warm bathes, which will help you.

Take care, and keep us posted

Ron I think I may be able to help you. I had similar "symptoms" a few years ago. I was in agony and after spending 2 days all day on my stomach because of the pain a few times I finally went to see a doctor.

He told me to take Metamucil. It helped a little bit. But after a few days I decided to try 2 doses and oh boy what a relief.

I've only had 1 or 2 pain days the past few years due to missing my Metamucil the night before.

Give the Metamucil a shot. I was shocked how well it helped me. Hopefully it'll do the same for you (I'm very confident it will)

I'm actually seeing the specialist again in early July. To be honest I'm sick of taking Metamucil EVERY night. I'm hoping he can perform ligation and/or surgery so if I miss a night I'm not in pain the next day. Unfortunately I also have a polyp hanging out my *** they couldn't take out during the colonoscopy since it was too dangerous. So I'm sure I'll be under the knife for that too.

Ironically I didn't have insurance back then either.

Let me know how you make out. Remember take 2 helps alot
