Please, can anybody help me?
Starting on 7th February this year (and by now I am so fed up and frustrated with it all!) I have had what I can only describe as a swollen anus and a distended abdomen.
I have been to the doctors many times, they have ruled out piles, fungal infection, skin infection. I have been tested for thyriod functions and to see if I'm allergic to wheat or gluten - all of which came back fine. I had a urine test, all was fine. Pregnancy test even, which I'm not.
But this has been going on for so long now I feel like I'm going to 'snap' and rip my **m off just to be rid of it!
All of the time my **m feels like it is swollen, to me it feels a bit like the muscles all around. It gets extra swollen after I've been to the toilet (Bowel movement) and feels a bit numb to the touch. When I'm walking about it feels like I'm walking around with my knickers stuck in my **m-crack! (But they're not!) and if I walk for any distance my **m really starts to hurt.
My stomach is huge and discusting. I can't seem to eat anything more than about half a sandwich or equivalent without feeling too full, like I've over-eaten. After I have eaten my stomach gets extra huge. But then if I don't eat for ages, that makes it get extra huge too!
I can't sit normally in a chair for very long before I start to get pains in my **m and abdomen. The last few weeks I've started getting bad stomach cramps if I need to pass wind or need to open my bowels.
The doc told me to go home, try and ignore it and it'll probably sort itself out... but that was about 2 months ago now and nothing has changed. No improvement. Only differance now is the extra stomach cramps!
Doc has told me to go and get some swabs done now (I'm female by the way!) but I really don't see what that has to do with anything. Even my doc conceded that a problem with my 'bits' wouldn't give me a sore **m. And I've had infections there before, and this isn't anything like that.
I was told years ago that I might have IBS - might that have anything to do with this?
Please, can anyone help me? I'd be so grateful for even the smallest insight. Any questions, please ask me.
Thank you very, very much in advance.
