Hi everyone!  I am still fairly new to this disorder and am feeling something that I haven't as of yet.  I feel like I need to go to the bathroom and when I go I can't.  It feels like something starts to come out and then goes back in.  I have no real idea what this could be. I am wondering if I have developed a hemmroid or something.  I am not too worried about it, however I would like to know what it is so I know what I need to do for it. 
It is so weird to always feel like something is right there and I need to go, lol
Thanks in advance.

There is a symptom that causes you to feel that you constantly need to go to the loo, it is usually associated with rectal inflammation, if you were previously diagnosed a UC did they mention rectal involvement?

Hi HM,

This sounds similar to tenesmus which is the feeling of incomplete evacuation, when it feels like you've gone but you haven't finished or feels like "something" is there, but nothing comes out...this can happen with crohn's (when CD is affecting the rectom) or with UC as well, it's termed as "proctitis" when there's inflammation in the rectom (from either CD or UC). Rectal meds (I love cortifoam myself) can aid this.

bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

I get that feeling when I have proctitis. I get intermittent to constant rectal pain, mucus, and constantly feel like I have to go to the bathroom but can't usually go. My GI gave me some mesalamine enemas which worked well until the applicator caused more irritation (I think it was scraping my fistula tract). They've given me mesalamine suppositories now so I don't have to deal with the applicator but thankfully my proctitis has subsided for the moment and I haven't needed them.

If you mention it to your doc they should be able to give you something to help out :)
