: : Hi Everyone:
: : This is the first time I wrote on a message board. I have been having problems now for over 2 months. I have never been a good eater (or should I say - I don't eat enough fiber). So, I started taking Metamucil which has helped me. . but 3 months ago, after a large bowel movement, I felt an ache in my lower right butt cheek. After a week, i went to the doctor thinking I may have hemmoriods but no hemmoriod. he told me that I strained my sphincter muscle. So. . it went away but I then went to by GYN to have everything checked out because I have Endometriosis (not real bad) and thought maybe it was in my bowels. he found nothing new (of course, i had no symptons when I saw him) I mostly get my symptons around my period. Last month, I had rectal spasms for a short period. I am a mess. I have another appointment with my doctor but think I need to investigate further with a Gastro doctor. Does anyone else ever experience any of my symptons or have any answers? Also, I never ever have diahrea. . . just more on the constipated side. Help!

: Hi Pam. You sound very much like me. I have always had the rectal spasms,worse during my period, since I was a teenager (i'm 33), and I also have the constipation. I don't usually have diarrhea, except sometimes during my period. When I have these spasms it is usually right before a big bowel movement, and this relieves it. I don't really have an answer as to what is causing the spasms, but I know I always feel better when someone responds to my messages and tells me they have the same thing!! Take Care, Janet L.

: Dear Pam

I am so glad I found your e-mail. I have been suffering from IBS for 10months now. My main symptom is constipation. I have a pain on my right butt at the moment. It is really sore when I try and pass a constipated stool. I have had it before a few times and as it happens my period is due within the next few days. If I remember correctly it has happened at around this time before. I find that Magnesium tablets help my constipation - 300mg taken after my main mail of the day. I read this in one of the many Irritable Bowel Books I have gone through !!

I'm also thinking about having food intolerance tests done - the only problem is they are rather expensive ? Has anyone had this done and did it help IBS symptoms ??
