It's sort of incomplete though. Stool comes out slightly deformed, and much narrower than usual (not "pencil thin", but thin). There has been, if any, only a single instance of blood, over a week ago before I acknowledged the problem. I am in no pain, but am quite bloated (uncomfortable, makes sleeping difficult). I gave myself an enima two days ago (also uncomfortable, I found), and I felt much better for a time.

I've take a look inside my anus, and a fleshy protrusion becomes visible when I strain slightly, not that I know what it's supposed to look like, really. I went as far as to touch it, it's quite numb.

I'm fairly active, running or training (lightly) every day. Hoping that this is just an infection or hemorrhoids...I'm in my early twenties. Any ideas? No health insurance btw.
