are you flaring?

I would suggest an antispasmodic....I use dicyclomine.

Any foods you can attribute to the discomfort? How soon after you eat are you bloated?

Just to let you know that low in the rectum inflammation...early flare...can give the symptoms of bloating and cramping.

Curious if you have rectal gas that kind of stays there and isn't easily expelled? If so...I'd say early flare.

Have you tried any fibre supplements? Probiotics? digestive enzymes?

Are you chewing any new gum? new drinks? new foods?

You could try some peppermint or ginger tea.

Are you pregnant?
