I am currently flaring badly (last 6 weeks) where I am having extreme stomach pain, bleeding, mucous, and intense urgency which puts me in the restroom 40-50 times a day. I have been flaring since May, but until 6 weeks ago, I was only using the restroom about
10-12 times a day.
As a result of my frequent forays into the facilities, my bottom has been soo painful!
Within the last two weeks, my rectum has become incredibly painful and swollen. I have always had one hemmorrhoid which hasn't given me too much trouble.
This increased, intense pain in my rectum has lead me to discover a cyst like object on the outside of my rectum. It seems to move around inside the skin. This object is not anything like my other hemmorrhoid. I also can feel a much smaller object like the first I described which seems like it is beginning to form.
Though I have bloody BM's, bloody mucous, and just straight blood everyday, this morning it seemed especially bad. A lot of blood came out when I tried to go, but when I wiped, there were several large blood clots on the tissue along with a lot of bright red blood.
So my question is this: Do you think this ball-cyst-like thing is a hemmorrhoid or is it something else? If it's something else, do you know what it might be?
Thanks for all your help!
