Rectal Prolapse?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Anyone experience this?

I am unsure of what I am feeling.

Was diagnosed by Naturopath as having ibs-c. Constipation under control after almost 5 months. No more ab discomfort. Huge diet change. Also had rectal pressure for awhile but that is steadily getting milder and milder. Some days none at all. But now for the past 4 days I have a feeling of something sliding up and down in my rectum. There is no bleeding.

I thought it was a hemorrhoid and tried a glycerin suppository which helped. But the next day it was back. Tried a hemorrhoid suppository and it hurt really bad and made the problem worse so I stopped.

I do not feel this issue until later in the day. There is nothing sticking out of my rectum!

Has anyone experienced this?

I am making an appointment with the doctor but I am very scared.

    Have you tried an ice cube every day?  This will shrink the haemorrhoid if you have one.  I would try the glycerin suppository every day for a week if it helped.  But don't worry.  Your doctor will do a simple examination to see what is going on.  You could have an internal haemorrhoid; external ones tend to stick out.  Since you have had constipation, a haemorrhoid is a possibility. Try not to think the worst.

      Hi Pippa,

      Thank you for talking to me. I had a bit of rectal pressure so tried a glycerine suppository. The pressure went away but I have been left with the feeling of something still up there. I know it is not bm. It feels like it moves in and out. When I have a bm it feels like it moves out as the bm is ending, then goes back in. I tried another night of suppository use and it hurt and would not stop until I expelled the suppository. I am really worried about what the doctor will find. )))-:

      Was hoping someone else on here might be feeling this.

      So I the only appointment I could get is still over a week away and the soreness got so bad, my husband had to take me to the hospital last night.

      The exam showed some redness inside but no hemorrhoids or fissures. I have a prescription for pain and suppositories for inflammation that I have to fill today. They applied a lidocaine gel so I could at least sleep last night.

      I looked up rectal inflammation and it came up as 'proctitis'.

      None of the 'causes' apply except maybe bacterial infection but I have no idea how I would have gotten that. I may have to start a new thread because clearly I don't have rectal prolapse...

      I still have to wait and see my doctor next week to do more.

      if you have heard of this kind of inflammation please let me know.
