A few nights ago, out of the blue, I had a serious case of burning D, at a level I've never felt before. I've had episodes before with simliar acidic D, but this one, was simply intolerable. I was on my bathroom floor crying, begging the universe to stop this burning pain. It literally feels like I'm passing pure undiluted hydrochloric acid through my rectum. I'm not exaggurating. I've had IBS-D for 7 years, and have learned to deal with much discomfort, but this, I simply can't take this. It's basically been 48 hrs. now and I still have it and I don't know what to do. I'm trying to eat bland and using baby wipes to try to keep the area clean but I'm in so much pain and I'm really scared this won't ease up. I fear I will get serious anorectal damage if this keeps going much longer. Any advice on how to manage this? And anyone have any idea what causes it? I still don't know if it's stomach acid or bile or what that causes the burning but I will do anything to stop this so please let me know if you have any ideas. Thank you.
