Detailed history : In cases where the symptoms are complex and the diagnosis is not straightforward, many clinicians would say that the most important step is detailed conversation with the patient to elucidate the history. Especially if some work up has already been done, a careful review of the story is the first step. Consider getting a consultation with a doctor in the office or here on HealthTap. ...Read more

Often i suffer from waves of pain going through the colon to the rectum , is that i symptom of something bigger?

? tenesmus: It important to know whether this is of a new onset or chronic. Any irritation of the colon can cause cramping that can appear wavelike. New onset could be an infection in the colon, a chronic pain could be multiple cause including irritable bowel or inflammatory bowel disease. A good rule of thumb is does the pain wake you up at night? If it does, this needs to be investigated. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of an internal prolapse? How can it be identified? I see the inner rectum when straining, is it an internal prolapse?

Not if...: If it reverses after bowel movement, it is temporary! a true prolapse would remain fixed. I think you should ingest more fiber, to allay the possibility it can happen! ...Read more

Soreness at rectum and very lite bleeding after wiping.  Sometimes some leakage.  Any thoughts?  No other symptoms.

Get proctoscopy: You should see a gastroenterologist or a colorectal surgeon for detailed rectal exam and proctoscopy if necessary. Common causes of such symptoms are anal fissure, hemorrhoids and perianal fistula/sinus. Procto-colitis is another condition that can be diagnosed with proctoscopy and is important in young individuals. Treatment will depend upon diagnosis. ...Read more

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. Add colaxe to your diet 100 Mg tab two to three times a day. Oral mineral oil works as well with one tablespoon with every meal. If you are worried about it see you general medicine doc and they can help. ...Read more

Used an anal plug 2 days ago. Haven't had symptoms but today my rectum has been a little sore. I have gone #2 fine many time no blood. Rectal perf?

Sore is not perf....: Rectal Perforation is not 'sore'. It is emergent, life threatening and bloody. So, if you are otherwise just a bit sore you have not perforated your anus. Another common scenario with anal sexual play is the chance of tearing the lining of the colon or rectum. This is a fissure and is also not a perforation. ...Read more

How long can you be without symptoms with a perforated rectum. I did some anal play 5 days ago and have a very sore rectum and I'm just worried.

How long can you be without symptoms with a perforated rectum. I did some anal play 5 days ago and have a very sore rectum and I'm just worried.

Not likely: You probably suffered local trauma. A rectal perforation is a surgical emergency. Would recommend that you abstain from any activity that will involve your rectal area and make sure you have at least 1 BM/ day, ideally soft. If no better in few days please seek medical attention. ...Read more

Prostatitis symptoms, but dre always checks out fine. During erection feel swelling in rectum. Weak urinary stream, feeling of not emptying. Did cystisc. And MRI of bladder, nothing. 5 years of this..

Blad nck hypertrophy: Prostatitis is typically characterized by irritative voiding symptoms (yours are obstructive voiding symptoms) and pain. The dre very rarely is revealing in cases of prostatitis. You are too young for a typical enlarged prostate. Cystoscopy rules out urethral stricture.

I have night sweats and blur vision I am due for an op in jan for a prolapse rectum and uterus are the symptoms linked in any way?

I have night sweats and blur vision I am due for an op in jan for a prolapse rectum and uterus are the symptoms  linked    in any way?

No: The chances of you having a prolapsed rectum at age 26 is very small. The chances of it causing blurry vision and night sweats are less. I would be slow to have surgery for those symptoms and might suggest a second opinion if you have been told the surgery is going to cure those symptoms. I would be quick to ask about recurrence of the prolapse prior to having surgery for the uterus. ...Read more

Depends: If the doctor is unable to identify the issue or cause of the problem with an external examination of the anal area, then a sigmoidoscopy may be indicated. Ask your doctor why it is indicated for you, if that is their recommendation. ...Read more

Can lupus cause pelvic cramping and shooting nerve pain near bladder, vagina, &rectum? I have IBS too. I get these odd symptoms during my flares. Cause?

Can lupus cause pelvic cramping and shooting nerve pain near bladder, vagina, &rectum? I have IBS too. I get these odd symptoms during my flares. Cause?

Yes: Sle, through a variety of mechanisms can result in almost any symptoms, although this set would be unusual. Irritable bowel syndrome is unlikely to do this, but if you have inflammatory bowel disease in the form of chrohn's particularly, these symptoms may definitely occur. You should be evaluated for these by your doctor. ...Read more
