I've got an embarrassing problem, i know i should see the doctor but the problems more where it is then not wanting any help!
for the last 4/5 months i've noticed my stools have been different, as in very loose and i've got a lump that bulges out of my rectum. I've had piles, so know how painful they can be, in fact 12 years ago i had to have them injected because they were so bad. But this lump doesn't hurt! Do prolapsed piles hurt? I've had external piles and they really are painful.
it does, however prevent me from expelling large stools and i am now having trouble controlling the muscles down there and too be honest i'm terrified of having an accident. My tummy's churning loads but not painfully and if i need the loo i have to go straight away.
I'm very tired all the time with no energy and over the last couple of days have started to feel sick (not physically sick, i just feel it)
The area down there tingles alot, not pins and needles, more a sort of buzzing sensation which is on and off every day and has been for some time.
The earliest i could get an appointment to see my doctor is for 6th Nov, which is ages away but i'm too ashamed to get my bottom out in front of anyone else.
Any thoughts or ideas?
