Hi Guys,
I have a question for you guys concerning my health condition and I'm pretty desperate to find some answers because I've seen a specialist and she couldn't figure out my problem so she blame my intestine problem on stress & anxiety. Let me explained, I'm a 28 year old C5/C6 Quadriplegic and since 2 month, I'm having lots of pain in the belly and just the task of putting a suppository is hard because it's really tight inside (anus) and when we put it, it is pretty painful and it feel like you're having a Bowel Movement but I'm not. I also always feel a pressure at the rectum area which is painful. I don't have a clue why it's doing that but it is not related to constipation because I'm not. It is pretty embarrassing discussing this subject but I truly need help and you guys are my last resort. I have been in bed on and off due to this because the pain in the belly gets so bad that I need to lay down. A few years ago, I've had an episode of inflammation at the beginning of the intestine (proctitis) and it went away. Now, this time, it's not that because the doctors said there was no inflammation but I still don't know what causes me to have these sort of cramp (electric shock). When I do have a BM, it goes once and after nothing goes and it's painful because everything gets so tight inside and it is frustrating! I also eat very healthy! Because of the pain, I can't stay in my wheelchair too long. Does anyone of you guys ever experienced something similar and/or do you have an idea of what could of cause this? Any suggestions will be appreciated?
Thanks in advance,
Yan
