Okay, I'm having hard time functioning today.  A little background.  Saturday I had major league "d" and I took an imodium.  Stopped me right up.  Didn't have another bm until Monday afternoon and I had several bouts of "d".  Nothing at all yesterday but this morning I have this really full feeling.  First time I went to the restroom it was normal but it really hurt when I went.  Not razor blade kind of hurt but more of a sharp ache in my rectum.  Second time I went it was explosive but only a firm, thin, snake like stool came out.  Really weird.  But it really hurt again.  I really think something is going on inside but I just don't know.  I still haven't heard back from the doctor about my x-ray.  Just the medical assistant and she said the x-ray report showed nothing. I'm still having bad tailbone pain.
I am having a hard time keeping my eyes open this morning.  How many cups of coffee can a person drink before they overdose on caffeine?  LOL
I know this is TMI but I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

What your are describing sound like what my son has been going through... The GI had us give him large doses of MOM(works good at breaking stuff apart) to get things pushed through, and now he has to take a full dose of miralax (maintenance) to keep things moving. The doctor is concerned that there in either a lot of inflamation in the TI that is slowing stuff down, or something else..... Anyhow the CT scans have not shown anything going on in him either, but all of his symptoms say something else. Our GI said that a lot of times you just have to get inside to get the real story, so he is haveing another scope soon.
I am really sorry that your don't feel good, and in my experience the second pot of cofffee is the one that sends my heart a racing and sets me firmly on the porcelain throne. lol

My 11 year old son was Dx in may of 2007, but he had symptoms of CD at age 7. He was Dx with spondylitis in July of 2007, but had symptoms at age 2. I also have a 6 year old going through testing...
