Used kid size fleet glycerin suppository. Caused bad stomach cramps, gas & only very small amount came out. Now stomach is bloated w/ hemorrhoids. ER?

Provider: Unless your hemorrhoids are bleeding, your PCP should be able to manage your symptoms. Adding a stool softener/laxative might help and getting suppositories specifically for hemorrhoids. If you can't see your doctor go to the ER. All the best. ...Read more

Hemorrhoids (Definition)

The veins in the rectum can swell and become puffy when a person has frequent pressure on them from pushing out a bm. This is constipation.

Constipation, rectal pain when sitting, spots of bright red blood on tissue, diarrhea, stomach cramps on right side. Ibs? Hemorrhoid?

Constipation, rectal pain when sitting, spots of bright red blood on tissue, diarrhea, stomach cramps on right side.  Ibs?  Hemorrhoid?

Both or neither...: Need diagnosis first. "cure" depends on if simply just hemorrhoids/fissure or something serious. Have you been straining at stool, have rectal dysfunction, perform an activity that increases pelvic engorgement with blood or increases pelvic pressure (heavy lifting, prolonged sitting, etc.)? History of colitis, infection, rectal/anal trauma or high risk? Best to get checked--don't delay please. ...Read more

What are some ways to relieve stomach cramps that are a result of the hemmorroids?  I I have had no bm's for
At least one week.

Constipation: It is the constipation, not hemorrhoid that are the likely cause of stomach cramps. Take a laxative like Dulcolax. if that does not help you may administer yourself an enema like Fleets enema. If all that does not work, it would be prudent to see your doctor or go to an emergency room. ...Read more

Blood when wiping after bowel movement, stomach pressure/cramps after eating and increased gas. No external hemorrhoids. What could cause this?

Blood when wiping after bowel movement, stomach pressure/cramps after eating and increased gas. No external hemorrhoids. What could cause this?

GI disease: Gi symptoms are complex and difficult to determine on a site like this. Irritable bowel, crohn's, hemorrhoids, food intolerance, etc are all issues that need to be explored. A visit to a gastroenterologist or even a cool-rectal surgeon appears to be in order to define the problem and treat the underlying cause(s). ...Read more

I get cramps after eating.  Sometimes it's diarrhea.Stomach feels discomfort in general for over a few months now.Blood on tissue sometimes but have hemorrhoids.Could it be colon cancer? I'm 35yr old.

Cancer unlikely but: You have abdominal cramping after meals and you are 35 years old. It is unlikely that this in colin cancer but it would be a good idea to see your doctor. Even though you have hemorrhoids the blood on tissue paper could be a sign that your intestines are inflamed. Celiac disease among other causes like ulcerative colitis should be evaluated among others. ...Read more

I have had diarrhea for the last four days. It started with severe abdominal pains and cramps. The abdominal pains subsided but the diarrhea has increased. I got hemorrhoids during pregnancy. One was an external hemorrhoid,but now I have like five inflame

Hemorrhoids are: commonly aggravated by both the straining and skin irritation from diarrhea. They will probably improve as your other symptoms improve. But, diarrhea worsening after 4 days is worthy of a doctor's visit to assess the cause and make sure you are well hydrated and have normal electrolyte balance. ...Read more

After a week without hardly eating, I'm slowly intaking bland foods, will that cause me to have stomach cramps because my stomach is not use to foods?

After a week without hardly eating, I'm slowly intaking bland foods, will that cause me to have stomach cramps because my stomach is not use to foods?

Hydrate, hydrate 1st: We don't have enough information to know why you're not eating, or don't eat. So the safest route is to always to be hydrated, Especially with your history of gastroesophageal reflux disease, because if you haven't eaten for about a week, and are introducing bland food, you really need to also be hydrated during/between your bouts of not eating. Please discuss this with your PCP, your doctor. ...Read more

Blood clots: Any estrogen containing med can increase the risk of blood clots. Severe abdominal pain is a symptom that deserves further evaluation in someone using the patch. Some women stop using condoms when on birth control, which can increase the risk of stds & pelvic infections. Have you been faithful? Has she? ...Read more
