Hi there

For the past 2 weeks or so I have been experienceing intermittant pain at the coccyx area and sometimes around the rectum when I need to pass stools. it's not every day but every few days probably. The pain is not intense but more nagging and seems to go away when I pass stools and even seems to lessen sometimes when I pass wind.

I did get diagnosed with IBS about 10 years ago, (does that kind of thing stay with you for life?) and I do get a bit constipated, or at least find passing stools quite hard.

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? I've done a bit of searching on the inernet but I seem to find a different answer on every link I click!

Any help would be much appreciated
