Just wondered if anyone had any insight into what might be wrong with me. I have been unwell with bowel problems for about
2 years. I have constant constipation, quite often going up to 2 weeks with no motion. I suffer from terrible cold clammy sweats. I have serious backache, the physio thinks it's coming from the sacral joint. I had a defecating proctogram done which showed the inner and outer anal muscles weren't working correctly. I also had an abnormal colon transit test, it showed very slow transit and also indications of an obstruction in the right hand side(which hasn't been followed up on) I get serious stomach pains (and pains in my bottom cheeks also). I struggle to go the toilet and often have to insert a finger to help me. This might or might not help. My stools are accompanied with a lot of gas and I am often full of gas. The stools are often very thin with like a flat edge on one side. The pain is often debilitating, I am unable to move for hours at a time. The pain worsens if i sit on the back of my bum or if i walk (everytime my foot hits the floor) I just don't know what to do now. I've been taking movocol but with very little success. I seem to be getting fobbed off by the gastro doctor and have requested a second opinion. I have an appt on Jan 9th. On monday of this week I was really ill and ended up in casualty after vomiting up poo. Sorry for being so graphic. They thought I'd had a blockage but it had cleared. My WBC has also been raised for months (it's in the 20's) Does any of this sound like IBS or other bowel diseases any of you know about
. I'm at the end of my tether now. I have lupus but been told by lupus doc this isn't connected. Many thanks
