First, this is a bit yucky. I'm at a loss as to how this happened.
My IBS-C seems to have come back full force. It started with the Depo-medrol shot that I finally recovered from, but it's gotten weird.
This past week I was constipated. Not too bad (so I thought), but the bloating and stuff was bugging me. I had to go to the bathroom (BM) and it wouldn't come out. The pain and pressure was immense - it was "right there" (sitting right in the rectum/anal sphincter area -- sorry), but it wouldn't come out. It literally was stuck. I didn't strain or anything, but still I sat for quite a while...nothing happened. This started Tuesday and finally, I was able to go completely yesterday and this morning. Relief doesn't even describe it. To say my bum hurts, is an understatement. My internal hemmies are probably external now!
I have never, in all of my years of being severely constipated, had this happen. I've gone through alot of things with IBS-C, but never this. I'll take the bloating, cramping and what-not that goes with having severe C, at least I can deal with that.
I really didn't eat anything different over the weekend, I'm off all medications (and have been since June) and the Depo-Medrol should've run it's course by now (it's been about
6 weeks now).
Any ideas? I'd like to prevent this from happening again. Thanks for listening, sorry it's abit gross.
Some days you're the bug, some days you're the windshield RA, AS, intolerance/sensitivity to gluten, wheat and dairy.
