For ~1 week I've had a sharp feeling in my rectum but no other symptoms
I don't feel sick, I am having clean, solid BMs and NO BLOOD or mucous whatsoever.
For background: my last UC flare was in 2014, and I've been taking Asacol HD (6 tabs daily), Rowasa at night, along with VSL#3 and Librax. I've had 4-5 flares in my life since being DX'd 12 years ago and none of the symptoms I've experienced are occurring right now.
That said: I've never had hemorrhoids, so I don't know how they feel. The best way I can describe what I feel is that it's as if there's a sharp object up my anus. It doesn't affect my BM or flatulence from coming out but if I clench, cough, sneeze or do anything in that region I can feel the "sharpness" in my butt.
For those who've experienced hemorrhoids - is that how they feel? I'm speaking to my GI tomorrow but thought I'd ask. Thanks in advance. I pop in and out of this board and hope you're all in remission and/or symptom free
