Hi everyone, new to this forum but i need some kind answers and i do not have health insurance so i have not been to a doctor. It started when i was having a bowel movement everything was going normal then it was like a sharp pain in my rectum that turned into a dull annoying pain that has not gone away in two weeks. There is no bleeding, abnormal looking stool, or problems having a bowel movement but it does feel like im not always emptying completely. I have also had problems where i feel sick to my stomach but it goes away. Im worried about the pain in my rectum because i dont kno what it could be and hoping its nothin serious or life threatning. If you have any questions for me to help me out please ask them.

The symptoms you explain that you have sound similar to what i experienced for the 2 years prior to been properly diagnosed , your bowel has probably collapsed and you will need surgery to repair it as the longer you go without having it repaired the worse your symptoms could get. I used to feel sick all the time and was in pain when passing stools , i live in the UK and luckily we get medical treatment for free here whereas for you in America it is costly but i recommend you get it seen to as soon as possible. One question for you , when you pass stools does something pop out of your anus that you have to manual pop back in ? If you do then you definately have a rectal prolapse.
