Does constipation feel like something is stuck in your rectum?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Ive been suffering with my bowels for a few weeks and when I go to the toilet it feels like there's something just sitting in my rectum but that's solid and painless. I have been able to pass some stools but this feeling hasn't gone away. If I push really hard I can feel it like a stool that wont move and my abdominal muscles start to hurt/feel pressured, but when I press my abdomen there's no pain or anything. it's just when I push. I haven't been able to go to the toilet very often recently and it's concerning me (and my appetite has been bad recently but seems to be improving).

has anyone experienced this with ordinary constipation or is it something different like hemorrhoids?

    colonic diverticulosis.... possibly....in my opinion most likely.

    either way...a gp visit is a must.

    Hemorrhoid is possible, sometimes i do feel the same even after surgery done. Suggest you get examined by GP to rule out other possibilities. This is because hemorrhoid hardly interfere with your bowel movements, it will cause pain and sometimes bleed. Or in some cases cause rectal prolapse.

    This sounds like constipation. I have had this. However, do not strain on the toilet because that can cause haemorrhoids. Instead, try a stool softener or lots of fruit like prune juice.

    It could be a polyp, you really should get it examined.

    listen to pippa. Her answer is the best. I don't think it's a polyp. It could be hemmoroids. Try a eating more fiber. And stool softners will help. After a week if you don't see an improvement go see a doctor ok. Fell better.
