What is going on with me!?

Ok, so last week i got bad stomach pains out of no where. this lasted for 3 days along with constipation. the pains went away but the constipation stayed. i went to the doctor only to have him tell me to take benefiber, and try a laxative if the benefiber didn't work. I waited 2 days then took exlax and was relieved of all constipation problems for 2 days. I am now having troubles again trying to have a bm. I feel like i have to have a bm but my anus feels like it is swollen shut. If i feel inside my anus i can feel feces there, and i have strained and pushed so hard to try to get it out with no success. i also noticed that i had a little skin tag type thing near the opening of my anus now. can someone please tell me what is wrong with me?

Re: What is going on with me!?

Whatever you do, please do not strain! This can lead to hemmoroids, anal fissures or Rectal Prolapse, all very painful!! You may want to see a Gastroenterologist or a Colon/Rectal Specialist, most PCP's are not very helpful dealing with bowel disorders. Fiber supplements, such as Metamucil or Citrucel do work, and they are not harsh and habit forming as laxatives can be, but you do have to drink lots of water (64 oz) along with a diet high in both soluable and insoluable fiber. I would suggest seeing a specialist. I wish you good luck and health.
