I dont know why he seems reluctant to prescribe anything. He tells me sometimes meds cause other problems. He seems to feel benefiber and avoiding certain foods will help.

Really appreciate you saying that about childbirth. Apparently, my pelvic floor is lower, covering the bowel area, adding to all this. I assume that is what you mean.

Thanks for the tip. I have noticed if I push around a certain way, it does seem to help.

Yup! This pretty well sums it up for me;.always watching what I eat and not too much at one time. I take Benefiber, which helps some, but not all the way.

Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction. I certainly still need to keep reading about this feeling of not eliminating and pain associated with it.

Thanks. Yes, I have hemmorhoids, which make it worse. I did not know about the cortizone suppositories. My doctor never said anything about that.

I would like to know if anyone experiences IBS like I do. I either go or don’t go to the bathroom. When I do, it usually feels incomplete. Once I start walking around, I often feel the urge to go again. It feels like there’s a huge ball pressing down in my rectal area, like pressure, like my rectum is “open”. My doctor has me on daily Benefiber to soften stools. I often take Tylenol for pain relief in hopes of shrinking my tissues. Does anyone have any ideas on how to rid myself of this?
