My 11 years old daughter had tenesmus, frequent going to WC (6 times a day), sometimes with no stool, other times with small pellts a month and hallf ago. This is accompanied by abdominal pains, in variable sites, lately lower abdominal. After 2 weeks, nausea developed. After a month, distention was also there. At the beginning, she also had two or three attacks of gastro-oesophageal reflux. Frequency of WC visits decreased to thrice a day for 2 weeks in the middle of this duration after using trimebutine but nausea and pain were still there. She is an anxious personality so I favoured the diagnosis of irritable bowl syndrome (IBS). No occult blood in stool. ESR, CBC, ANCA and ASCA are normal. Now she goes to the WC agin too frequent. I fear rectal partial obstruction. Should I do Ba enema or sigmoidoscopy or settle for IBS as a single and solid diagnosis?
