Too much pain in rectum can't sit easily what to do?

Recent pregnancy?: Have you had a recent vaginal delivery of a pregnancy? That is a common cause of rectal / pelvic floor pain. If that's not the case the pain could be coming from an abnormality in the anus or rectum or spasming of the perianal muscles. I would first see a GI specialist to check the rectal / anal / colon issue. If that's normal then you may need PT for pelvic floor spasm and pain. ...Read more

Pain in rectum six months after anal sex sharp pain when bm?

Anal fissure possibl: If' you've had persistent pain for six months since anal sex, you need to be evaluated by a surgeon (general or colo-rectal). If you have new pain, especially with a bowel movement you probably have a fissure. Use a stool softener (not a laxative) - colace (docusate sodium) or similar - twice a day until it's easier to go.

Sudden very sharp pain in rectum when "pushing" to use the toilet. Could this be proctagia fulgax? Could this possibly be a symptom of cancer?

Sudden very sharp pain in rectum when "pushing" to use the toilet. Could this be proctagia fulgax? Could this possibly be a symptom of cancer?

Anal fissure: Could be an anal fissure or a hemorrhoid. Try some hemorrhoidal cream around the anus or try some hydrocortisone suppositories but you will need a doctors order for that.

For a past few days, my stool is coming out like small pebbles, nut-shaped, dark in colour initially, then its normal, pain in rectum before defecation?

For a past few days, my stool is coming out like small pebbles, nut-shaped, dark in colour initially, then its normal, pain in rectum before defecation?

Small stool.: Your description of your stool shape of small pebbles and pain before defecation is likely secondary to lack of fiber and hydration. The colon will absorb a large of amount of fluid by the time you have bowel movement (only about 100cc-200cc left inside the stool). Suggest to drink adequate amount of water, high fiber diet, and take fiber supplement (citrucel 1 tablespoon in 8 oz of water, daily. ...Read more

Diagnosed with PID second time in year. Started meds today but still in pain in rectum and vagina. Could something else be wrong. Meds not helping.

PID not responding: In a patient diagnosed with pid who is not responding to oral medications (which I am assuming is all you are on), they should be hospitalized and started on IV antbiotics. You also probably need a ct scan of your abdomen and pelvis to make sure that you do not have an abscess (a walled off infection that might need to be drained). ...Read more

When going pee, there is a little pain between rectum and penis. Also he haves pubic fleas and smal dots on head of penis. What is that?

Here are some. ..: Feeling little ache as described at peeing suggests irritation in the prostate, but without further detailed Hx & physical exam, it's hard to give a definite answer. Clinically, if the symptom persists or worsens, seek pro-evaluation & counseling. Besides, the concern on small dot on glans penis & pubic fleas requires a direct look so to confirm if both are related or foreskin-related. ...Read more

Have pid. Pain in rectum is decreasing with pain killers. Does it mean PID is gone? Will pelvic ultrasound show if there is any damage?

Worth an exam: Early Tx w/ a full course of antibiotics can stop the infection and limit further damage. It doesn't correct damage done. Pain pills only relieve pain! The infection can continue - see a Dr ASAP. It's very important and your partner needs Tx too! I hope you catch it in time to be well. ...Read more

+ OPK yesterday and today, I experience pain in rectum after vag. Sex, is it due to mittelschmerz or is it from my endometriosis and pcos? Ttc 4yrs.

Complex Siutation: It is certainly not the pcos. If you have endometriosis that is severe enough to cause pain like that, most likely you will need ivf to get pregnant. If you have 4 years of infertility at a young age, I would run quickly to a fertility specialist since you may find out that getting pregnant now or in the future may be something very difficult and your ovaries may be aging very quickly. ...Read more

Pain in rectum sometimes after bowel movement. Few times had clear stuff in toilet or loosely attached to stool with small amount of blood. Causes?

Several possible: If any bleeding then inflammatory bowel disease would fit well--a serious autoimmune disease with a strong increased risk of needing surgery and/or cancer.

Your: Your symptoms are concerning and I would advise that you seek out immediate medical evaluation if you haven't already done so. Pain in the left lower quadrant can be caused by ovarian cysts (even if you have had a tubal ligation), tubal pregnancy (rare but can still occur after tubal ligation), intestinal causes such as diverticulitis, or urinary tract causes such as infection or stone. Please be seen immediately for evaluation.

If you have fever, vomiting, light-headedness, or your pain continues then you should be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Pain in the penis when peeing. No discharge, no pain in rectum & no pain in testicles like from STI. Been going on for 2 weeks more or less. Help?

Penile pain: Still could be infection. Sometimes men get infection we call non specific uretheritis that is not associated with a discharge just with pain, which is not normal.. usually treated with doxycycline or levaquin (levofloxacin) if not allergic +/- Flagyl (for BV which we never check in the male-just treat if partner having it)as well.

White stringy fluffy strands and red patches in stool. Pain in rectum, difficulty passing stool. Increased flatulence. Started accutane 1 wk ago, but GI problems for a at least a year. Concerned about the possibly of the accutane causing this- however I t

Probably not: If your symptoms were present before accutane - it's probably not the medicine. I would encourage you to see MD to rule out Chron's disease vs ulcerative colitis. Also if you have had anal sex may need specific STD testing. See MD soon - stool studies may be needed especially if having weight loss.

Air is prob. Cause: Most cases of bloating are caused by ingestion of air every time you swallow you ingest air. That, plus the breakdown of of the foods and fluids we take in produces gas, and frequently this makes itself evident with pain in the rectal and vaginal areas. Increasing your activity by exercise will usually dissipate the gas and relieve the bloating sensation ...Read more
