HI , I found this forum by accident really just searching for answers to my symptoms im very unsure what is going on in this body of mine if any ones any suggestions i will be very greatfull .well here goes with the symptoms very sorry but it is a bit gross - started having problems with my bowel movements in 2003 i would suffer constapation then very loose stools then came the bleeding in the stools and the cramps,doctor sent me to have a colonoscopy in nov 2003 which the results came back all clear .still had the problem on and off the next few years with some visits to the doctor regarding the problem but fogged off with its just piles or some other simple thing ,but in 2006 it was getting worse and i returned to the doctors to be given another excuse it could be tiny vains inside the rectum that have burst that is causing the bleeding its very common i was told also she noticed i had piles but i have always got piles have for years they dont bother me ,dont notice them bleeding they arent painful.
my recent problem started in dec 06 bowel movements had flared up again with lots of blood in the stool that had been going on right up untill about 2 months ago but then changed for the worst i became constipated for 7 days didnt move my bowels at all i bought over the counter laxatives for this as i have given up going to the doctor about this subject the laxatives didnt work but have on previous occasions then when i did go i couldnt stop going very very loose in the past month i have been getting mucas in my stools and also mucas without the stools the mucas has blood through it ,its clear mucas but when it comes with stool its yellowish my stools also have blood through them and covering them not lots like dripping but enough to panic me more than normal ,i now have some pain in my rectum and constantly have the feeling i need a pooh even when i dont ,i do a pooh about 6 - 10 times a day and feel as though im never quite finished and have a niggly pain at the bottom right side of tummy i have a lot of gas and also feel their is a blockage in my rectum as when doing a pooh i feel it gets pushed out to the one side and this also happens with the gas ,i have picked up the phone a few times during this last month to call for an appointment with the doc but ended up hanging up i think im embarased now as i feel ive been complaning a while now also we all know how they examin the rectum and its not nice at all at the last apointments i just had to have a mental block ,but i have made an apointment for tuesday 13 th ,im a bit worried she will fog this off again but its making me miserable previous apointments ive just accepted what the doc says but unsure if i should speak up and if i do what to say .anyway guys does my symptoms sound like ibs or not ? thanks for taking the time to read this .
