    Hello everybody! I'm new to this site, so please do not be harsh if I posted in the wrong topic. My symptoms started last year on a vacation in the end of August.

  3. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I woke up and noticed my anus was dirty and I had to wipe it. This happens second time. I'm scared that this is a begining of fecal incontinence... :S
  4. Abdominal Pain
    Hello everyone, I just had a query that someone might be able to help out with. A little backstory in brief: Pretty mild IBS-D for 3 years. More regular, looser stools, bit of abdominal discomfort now and then, gas etc. Par for the course but thankfully not too severe, and pretty easily...
  5. Teens and Children's Issues
    I am 17 and have been having stomach pain for over two years. It first started with just stomach pain. The pain was like severe/sharp bursts which lasted a few minutes to an hour and occurred almost everyday. I went to a pediatric GI and had stool samples done and those came back fine. The...

  8. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating
    Every morning, I feel the urge to have a bowel movement. This morning I felt the urge and thought my stool would just come out without me having to push so much. However, my stool did not come out; all I did was pass gas. I went back to sleep. Even with me passing gas seems like a struggle...
  9. General Discussion
    In the morning when I used the bathroom, my stool was formed like a lipstick tube; not mushy. Then I ate some cooked carrots, peas and one broccoli. I went to use the bathroom again. This time my stool came out mushy; as in the form of apple sauce or sand. Although it came out in the formation...
  10. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Sometimes I feel that I can go to the bathroom, and I think my stool will just come out without me having to push so much. However, sometimes my stool comes out, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes, when my stool does come out, it may come out mushy; like apple sauce or sand. Is this still...
  11. General Discussion
    I know the rectum stores feces, but what is inside of the perineum? I feel a lump there, it cannot be seen with a mirror, it is inside. When I have a bowel movement, I feel that I am incomplete. I am unsure if its the lump that is in the perineum that is stopping me; I don't know if it is stool...
  12. Welcome!
    When I have a bowel movement, I have to push. I feel some type of lump or sore on/in my anus. Though I don't know whether if it is stool. I don't really think it is stool, because when my stool comes out, the little lump feeling is still there. It makes me feel like I am constipated, and...
  13. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi everyone, I've been suffering from IBS-D for about 3 years now. Last year, I tried a few antidepressants (Zyprexa, Elavil, and Remeron). They all seemed to work well for a short time, then it's like my body adapted to them. I ended up just stopping because once they became ineffective, all...
