my doctor has had me on a fiber suppliment for the past year or so after complaining about hemorrhoids, cronic constipation and some minor rectal bleeding.

I have noticed some new symptoms since I started taking the fiber suppliment. every time I go more than about 3 days whether by forgetting to take the suppliment or running out before having had the time to get more some very specific symptoms happen.

I would like to know if there are any diseases or conditions that have each of these symptoms in common:

it starts with:

2 types of rectal discharge; fecal matter making it look as if I didn't wipe myself and a fluid sometimes clear, sometimes has a yellow or a bright pink tink. this starts first going between the two types of discharge.

next comes massive flatulence that cuases more rectal discharge, sometimes with pain and/or cramping on the lower left side of the abdomen .

after that coming about the same time is hemorroids and constipation that have a fast onset when the symptoms start up.

  • Try cooking with some barley in everything that you eat. Stews, soups, meatloaf or better yet leave off meat and stay with vegetables for a while. Grains are good but your body will take a while to adjust to the increased fiber from the grains and/or beans. Lots of vegetables.... Might checkout a program to eliminate any parasite that you just could have gotten from a pet. If you have been on an antibiotic you could help yourself by eating yogurt to replinish your intestines with bacteria. Good luck and check out the internet. Time cures a lot but you just may come across a doctor that is willling to work with you.

  • OK. I'VE OFFERED THIS UP BEFORE BUT IT IS NOT THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE TREAMENT:rolleyes: FIRST OF ALL- REGULATE YOUR DIET!!! LOTS OF VEGGIES AND FIBER AND LOTS OF WATER!! ALL THE FIBER IN THE WORLD IS NO GOOD IF YOU DON'T DRINK WATER. YOU MUST HAVE ENOUGH WATER TO "FLOAT THE BOAT":p . DEHYDRATED STOOLS ARE HARD TOO PASS, CAUSE STRAINING, HEMORRHOIDS AND PAIN. IF YOU MESS UP AND FORGET YOUR FIBER OR EAT ALOT OF DAIRY AND JUNK FOOD- THIS WORKS AS A QUICK FIX: MAGNESIUM SULFATE. PURE EPSOM SALT. TAKE A TSPN FULL, DOWN IT WITH SOME KIND OF JUICE (FLAVORING). IT IS VERY BITTER AND HARD TO SWALLOW!!! THEN, SRINK A GLASS FULL OF WATER-QUICKLY. WAIT ABOUT 15 MINUTES-NATURE TAKES OVER! THE STOOL IS NO LONGER ROCK HARD OR LIKE JAGGED GLASS AND YOU WILL GO TO THE BATHROOM!!! IT'S YUCKY-BUT EFFECTIVE! TRYING TO PASS STOOL THAT IS DEHYRATED OR TOO BIG OR SOLID-CAUSES UNTOLD PROBLEMS SOWN THE ROAD. FIBER AND WATER KEEP THINGS FORMED BUT NOT SOLID LIKE ROCK AND WATER ALLOWS THINGS TOO "MOVE SMOOTHLY" THE BEST THING TO DO THOUGH IS EAT RIGHT AND AVOID CONSTIPATING THINGS (MANY PAIN PILLS CAUSE SEVERE BLOCKAGE). IF YOU ARE REALLY IN A "BIND" AND STRAINING (excuse the pun):rolleyes: YOU MAY BENEFIT FROM A FLEET ENEMA JUST TO GIVE YOU THE EXTRA WATER YOU NEED TO GO. DON'T GET HOOKED ON THIS IT IS FOR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS ONLY!! -BEST ROUTE IS VEGGIES, FIBER, WHOLE GRAINS AND LOTS OF WATER AS THEY TRULY ARE THE KEY TO A HAPPY COLON! STAYING ACTIVE IS BENEFICIAL AS WELL. AVOID CAFFEINE, COLAS, CHOCOLATE, LATE MEALS, AND EXCESS ALCOHOL AND STRESS!! GOOD LUCK
