Hi guys. I have just seen the thread posted by Naomi regarding incomplete evacuation.I think it was a really good move by Naomi, but unfortunately it got sidetracked and I found it hard to wade through.I think I have this, whichever term you use. This kink/fastening/spasm of the puborectalis muscle seems to fit with all my symptoms. Just so I can match symptoms up, can you guys post of all of yours with a brief history? Obviously, this is what Naomi attempted before the disagreements kicked in.My story:- 36 years old- Always struggled with evacuation, since I can remember- Been diagnosed with IBS all my life. It didn't seem to quite fit.- Things for some reason took a turn worse last August- Spend vast amount of time on toilet, passing first large, then small stools- Pain after a BM, always get that golf ball feeling- Really struggle at the end with the few small bits- Get a lot of pain in different areas, variously: burning rectum, lower left abdomen and lately where small intestine areI have always experimented with diet, thinking I had an allergy, celiacs disease, lactose intolerance etc. I can never reduce that time on the loo and golf ball feeling though.How can we relax this muscle??!!
