I am wondering if anyone has had the same symptoms as me before, to put my mind at rest that my new symptoms are IBS related.
I have had IBS for 20 years, and have taken fibre supplements every day that seem to keep it largely under control. But earlier in the year I had a major flare up, taking my IBS off the scale.
I had a Colonoscopy, and all was clear, confirming it is a flare up. I have been trying a new FODMAP diet that has worked a treat, and really calmed things down (would highly recommend it). But I am having real problems down below. This include:
- A stabbing pain in my bum hole and or it being very itchy
- Blood spotting
- the urge to go to the toilet, and almost like I am 'ready to go' all the time!
- I am starting to get a bit uncomfortable when I wee as well.
I have been checked out and have been told I have not got Haemorroids or Anal Fissures, nothing untoward. I am being told this is all down to IBS, but I I am not bloating at the moment, and the upper part of me seems to be much calmer recently. It is all in the bottom!
Before I go back and ask to be checked more about this, I just wanted to ask the wider sufferers if anyone has experienced the same. I wouldn;t midn so much if my IBS was flaring, but it seems to be much calmer...or does it take a while for all other symptoms to calm down...waffling now!
Interested to hear...and would be comforting to know if anyone else has similar things in the past...is it IBS or am I being fobbed off.
