Severe lower abdomen pain and lower butt pain after bowel movement?

Severe lower abdomen pain and lower butt pain after bowel movement?

Hemorrhoids likely.: This is likely due to hemorrhoids. The history strongly suggest it, since pain is after a bowel movement, and likely associated with straining. It could be anal fissure, or possibly another colon/anal issue. Depending on your age, and if this has been going on a while, you might want to see your doctor to get a rectal exam/testing to make sure it is not worse, like cancer, etc.. ...Read more

Pain in lower back/abdomen, cramping, stomach pain with nausea during bowel movements. 5 days dihareah & pain, finally solid with same symptoms above?

Gastroenteritis: There are multiple possible explanations here. My advice would be to see a doctor if, within the next several days, the symptoms continue despite the resolution of the diarrhea. The inflammation produced by the infecting organism (if this is due to infection) may produce residual inflammation causing the abdominal pain and nausea. ...Read more

Unlikely: If you have doubts, you may do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Upper lower abdominal pain worse with bowl movement. Runny stools but wen have firm there are indents. Mucus and sometimes blood in stools.

May be significant: Abdomenal pain with runny stools in your age group could indicate inflammatory bowel disease(ibd). Blood in stools is always abnormal. You need a colonoscopy at the minimum and this could tell the tale. It may be something as simple as hemorrhoids, but with runny stools, especially if there is weight loss, is more indicative of ibd. See a good gastroenterologist or colo-rectal surgeon. ...Read more

I've had left abdomen pain, occasional hard bowel movements and microscopic blood in stool.  Now notice  I have some small areas of black tar stool that I haven't yet told doctor.  Her working differencal is IBS with diverticulitis. Is correct w/ tar?

Melena: Black tarry stool, otherwise known as melena, can sometimes be due to diverticulitis, but certainly can be a sign of bleeding in the upper digestive tract. You should share this new finding with your doctor and see if it affects her working differential. You may need tests to rule out an upper gastrointestinal source of bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more

I am experiencing  lower abdominal pain (side: right)  and tender abdomen. Pain started suddenly. 2 days. What could it be? It won't ease or go away.

If one is constipated for several days, stool can back up all the way to the right side, and cause discomfort or pain. Gallstones and kidney stones can also cause pain. One's primary care doctor or an ER doctor can check now. ...Read more
