Hello everyone,
    I'm new to this board, but have just recently been diagnosed with IBD by my doctor.  I can't even begin to tell you how much pain I am in.  I will do anything to get well.  does anyone else have these symptoms; Horrendous burning pain in the colon and rectum and feels like fire coming out everytime you use the bathroom?  Whenever i have diarreah it burns like hell.  Feels like the whole back end of me is on fire.  Is this common for chrons disease?  I am on absorb plus shakes and they help tremendously, it the ONLY thing I can eat without suffering horrendous pain all day long.  I am also taking probiotics in abundance.  I pray to God everyday for healing.  I now understand what you all must go through with this horrible disease.  God bless you all and I pray for your healings as well.

Sometimes when we are having alot of diarrhea it starts burning because we start passing bile. And that is what is burning your bottom so bad. I would suggest trying a warm wash cloth or maybe some alchohol free baby wipes to gently clean your rear end. Try to pat dry vs wiping. Also, believe it or not but diaper cream helps alot too.

Also, you might try some Immodium to try to slow the diarrhea down a little. Are you on any medications yet? Sending healing thoughts your way.

Pain is one of the worst things to deal with with this disease because I've found that doctors are so unwilling or unknowledgeable about how to treat it. Best advice, go to a pain management specialist or pain management clinic to have them help you with the pain, and see your GI to figure out how to get the pain to go away through IBD treatment. Good luck!
