So far 7 responses and none have pain. Could mean something, it cannot be just co-incidence. But more responses needed before we can arrive at a conclusion of some sort. So if more lg'ers can respond please.
no pain with LG but get a burning sensation above belly button after I take asparin. I do have a pressure around my anus when I am trying to hold back gas. Not like I need to poop. but just an unconfortable feeling. Mostly when around others.
Joyce, not to take this thread off topic but I wanted to say that I too get an uncomfortable feelilng around my anus too. When I am not having that feeling my LG is a bit better. Where "normal" people live their lives without being aware of their anus, I am constantly made aware of it by this uncomfortable sensation.Its really quite annoyong.
I was once told by a secialist that if there is no pain, it isn't IBS.I think that there is some truth to that. What will help the average IBS patient probably won't aply to us.A large number of people have IBS, few have LG. That might account for the lack of knowlege of this branch of IBS.
No pain, just the uncomfortable feeling around my anus. When I don't have that feeling I'm pretty sure it's 100% better. Something to note though, I have taken diet pills before and when I take them I ALWAYS have LG. It's like my LG was in overdrive so I don't take them anymore. That's why I put my LG more towards nerves because with diet pills your just jittery and nervous all the time and that uncomfortable feeling just won't go away.
So far 10 responded and all say NO PAIN. (Also notice that not one lg'er complains of uncontrollable d or uncontrollable c for that matter. Mostly IE and LG and NO PAIN) Another subset of ibs? Can this be presented to the research/medical community to conduct some research on as many of us stricken by this malady are worse off than plain d or c. Lg impacts on quality even more than the typical ibs symptoms imo.
So far 100% have said NO PAIN. Most have also mentioned a pressure like feeling or sensation in the anus when lg is happening. It's the same for me. I wish we can take this subset of symptoms to the medical research community for them to conduct clinical studies to find answers on this horrid syndrome. Does anyone know how we can present this subset of ibs to the research/medical community?
