So I've had IBS for years, but often when I have a bout, I get a somewhat intense pain in the penis (this is not a joke). Wouldn't quite call it a burning sensation like one gets from a urinary tract infection (at least I don't think it is, I've never had that infection before). And I wouldn't call it a dull pain, and it's not a throbbing pain. It's just extremely uncomfortable. This is accompanied by a small amount of yucky (for lack of a medical term) discharge. During a normal day, I have no urination problems that I'm aware of. It really seems like the problem flares up almost exactly at the same times as my bouts of IBS.
Now, I can't figure out if there's any causal relationship, and none of the doctors I've spoken to seem to be concerned. But I have a hard time believing that this is just a coincidence. So is the IBS causing the other discomfort and discharge, or do I have some other problem that is causing the IBS symptoms? Any thoughts? Thanks.
