I am a 34 year-old male with no known medical problems (other than slightly high cholesterol). I am not overweight. I exercise fairly regularly and eat healthy foods for the most part. I am married with 3 kids.
For the last 5 days, I have had constant pressure in my rectum, and some minor pain. I always feel like I have to have a bowel movement (although nothing comes out). In addition to the pressure, I am experiencing a constant pain that is very deep in my rectum... it seems near my tailbone. It isn't a major pain, just about 4 out of 10. The pain/pressure is constant, day and night.
I am also experiencing a lot of gas... I seem to pass gas all day long. My stools have been mostly loose, although today I only had 1 bowel movement and it was rather normal.
For the last 24 hours I have been experiencing abdominal pain as well. It isn't horrific, but very irritating. It also never seems to go away.
I have no blood in my stools (that I can tell, anyway). I have had hemmeroids before, and this is definitely not that. The pain/pressure is way up inside me, and isn't effected by bowel movements or sex (or anything, for that matter). In the last few weeks, I have felt a 'pulsing' feeling in my colon or rectum that is not painful, just strange. THose episodes would last about 30 seconds, and felt like small muscle spasms. I don't know if this had anything to do with my current problem.
Any ideas? I am getting tired of this non-stop pain! Ugh.
