yeah... i do think problems have already occured because of the straining... i.e. fissures :( the first time that happened was like 4 years ago, and it freaked me out bc i saw tiny bit of blood on the tp. thats maybe happened once or twice a year since then, and recently a couple months ago. they seem to heal after a few days and no more problems until the C comes back. when i have nice normal poo it feels fine, but if its C poo, well then it usually involves pain :( i have never talked to a doctor about
this bc well, like everyone else, who wants to talk about
poo! lol. i know i know, i need to mention it to my doc..... i will... someday.... lol.
anyways, funny you mention the left sided pain - thats where i first started feeling it, and then sometimes if i'm lying on my couch a certain way i can feel it on the right. sometimes if i stand a certain way, like leaning on my left leg with my knee locked i can feel it too. i'm weird, i know. i'm a big ball of random pains that make no sense!!!!
thanks for your input ladies, i really appreciate it :)
