Hey there, I was just wondering if this sounds like I have IBS or something similar.
Everyday I get severe pains in my lower stomach that get worse just before and after I do a poo. I also find that I need to do a poo everyday. When I do it however it is always hard to do, painful and takes a long time to do. It is smelly (I also get smelly gas a lot), really soft, only just together, it feels like my bum is burning for a long time afterwards and there is always a lot of it. It is usually a brown/yellow colour but when I take my iron supplements (I am iron deficient) it turns to a green colour.
Any opinions or advice on how to manage/help this and what may be wrong with me are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
