I am totally getting irritated at what is going on. I must have an intolerance to eggs or something, as I ate two scrambled a few hours ago and wham, huge amounts of gas, very little poop, and what I did wipe off my rear smelled yucky. Is that probably the egg smell? I'm beginning to wonder if I cannot tolerate eggs, and other things also. I have been using Egg Beaters also and wonder if that occurs with them?
And again I am feeling the jabbing gas pains in my left side. This does not occur with every food, just certain foods. So it has to be something I'm eating, that is the last thing I ate other than a bowl of bran flakes with soy milk a little bit ago. I had normal bm's today earlier, twice, and do not need to go now, but I feel gas in my rectal area also. But yesterday for the first time my stools floated partially atop the water. I have never had that happen ever. I know Celiac Disease can cause that which is a problem with consuming wheat gluten.
The stinging sensations are felt in the flank area of my back also, I am using my Canasa 1000mg suppositories every night now and take my Asacol as prescribed. But I don't like the way the small part of the middle of my back feels. You would not feel discomfort in the back would you with anything serious, that is worse than UC? I did a Over the Counter stool test to check for hidden blood back starting on July 21st and it showed normal.
I followed directions exactly. It has been 3 1/2 weeks since I did that test, I don't think I could develop anything like colon cancer in just 3 weeks. This seems like I am trying to flare but like it is not coming on full force. I am trying to remember if my rectal area felt this way with my past flares many years ago. It has been a long time. I am taking two probiotics daily. Should I take more or should I even ask my gastroenterologist if I should take them?
This feels like major gas. It drives me crazy.
