I am a Grade 8 teacher and had to leave work today kind of abruptly.( luckily, the special needs teacher was able to cover for me until a supply teacher comes in. For months I would once in a blue moon experience a sharp pain in my rectum. It usually would only happen once or twice and then be gone. It almost feels like it is located in the area between my rectum and my testes..(sorry, but I had to be precise...ha ha) Anyways, today, it happened often enough that I had to leave work. I have been off of prednisone for two weeks and have been feeling fine with regards to any bathroom issues I was having. Only going two or three times a day with no blood and solidly formed stool. So I don't think it's a flare up but could it mean one is coming? Has anyone experienced pains in that general area? It almost feels like it is due to built up gas but there wasn't any pain in my stomach so I am a little bit confused. Any thoughts????
