I'm not really sure where to start this... I'm 31 year old chap, in fair health except for my bowels.
To cut a long story short since visiting Bali in 2005 my bowels haven't been the same, got a case of 'Bali belly' as they lovingly call it, which lead to haemorrhoids. Had it treated in Australia (as that was the next stop in my gap year travels).
Since then I've had repeated trips to the docs which they've always said was haemorrhoids - cue lotions etc. and a referral where I was told I was wasting his time.
It's got gradually worse (2 years ago the symptoms ramped up massively) and is almost at the point of unbearable at times.
Been to the docs and was tested for IBD, crohns etc which are all thankfully negative (except one which is still waiting on a doc look over)
So leads me to question what the fluff is going on? Hope my doc will refer me to hospital.
My symptoms are;
Regular fresh blood in poo.
Uncomfortable feeling on bum (itch and wet feel no matter how much I try to keep it clean, often some poo there too, can be after a fart but doesn't have to be) - *sorry for being revolting*
Gas pretty regularly.
Stomach cramps now and again, more than I remember from before.
Caught short, when I have to go it has to be then.
Regular diahorrea and sloppy greasy poo, it has been a mustardy brown colour
Has anyone had this, hopefully someone can shed some light please?
