Does anyone else get pains up their bum? I have had shooting pains there before but nothing nowhere close to this pain it was agony, I have been spotting since Saturday and was woken up in the early hours of this morning with an excruciating pain up my bum to the point I was nearly crying, this lasted a couple of hours. I can only describe the pain as someone twisting something large like a rolling pin up my bum (sorry for the tmi!) And I also had extremely bad pain in my stomach at the same time, has anyone else experienced this and know what it could be? Thanks xx
Pain in bum: Does anyone else get pains up... - Endometriosis UK
I get this after a bad bowel movement usually during my period. It’s still happening now after it was all removed by an endo specialist. ☹️
I think it is standard to check; my first lap found it there and on POD. It was also found on my second lap and grown so much I got referred to a endo consultant because a normal gynaecologist cannot remove endo from there.
My endo nurse is suggesting I might need to see a colorectal specialist and probably have a colonoscopy because of these bowel issues. Have you been seen by a colorectal specialist?xoxo
Hey lizzy sorry to hear you’ve been going through this it sounds awful! It would be interesting to know. I have random shooting sharp pains up in my rectum and often when I’m opening my bowels. I’ve always suffered with constipation so just assumed it was because my muscles were going into spasm or something. Unsure whether it is related to my Endo or not 🤷🏼♀️
I’m not diagnosed yet but I used to get this a lot about six years ago. It’s excruciating!
It would start around 3-4 days before my period in my stomach and rear, then my period would add the feeling of my insides falling out of the notorious V.A.G. I had it every month for about 2 years and was told I had bad periods and depression because I cried at the doctors 🙄. Another contraceptive pill and antidepressants and I swapped the pain for other symptoms.
Only recently have I seen a gynaecologist, had an MRI and waiting for results before setting a date for first laparoscopy
Get it checked out. Please don’t get fobbed off
All the best x
I do. Lately i been on mini pill (4 months now) each morning just 3 or so hours before i need to take my pill i bleed and have pains like a period not as bad but still clench pillow and roll into ball. While i habe this i also get shooting pain up tje bum. Especially if i have a bowel movement with the period.
I find luke warm baths, laying on sode with blanket in between my legs to help. Anytome i get pain i "shake" or "kicl" my legs back and forth and of course any painkillers that are suited best for you.
Its very cruel good luck hun xx
I used to get this a lot. Had ridiculously painful periods too. I tried everything natural and the only thing that worked was serrapeptane 80,000iu. I only took it for a few days, sweated like crazy, got swollen lymph nodes in my groin (not sure if this was from sweating or a reaction). Then stoppedas I panicked. But I heard that this literally eats the Endo.
Had a year pain free after only taking that initial dose and have been ovulating regularly etc. Periods have been less heavy too. And no pain n the bum either! Used to feel like shooting pains or like someone punching you.
Hi Lizzie, could well be endo that was already there and you're having a flare up, or its grown in the last three months and is sitting on some nerves. If you have endo in the pod, sounds like it's likely to be the former. I'd suggest see an endo specialist gynae, they may send you for a transvag ultrasound to check the pelvis although it's not a conclusive diagnosis and needs a Really skilled technician (I have a London recommendation), before scheduling you for an excision laparoscopy (pick your doctor well). If that doesn't work out, you could try a pelvic physio, they can feel a lot of what's going on. Hope it helps!
Hiya, I really do feel for you. I know exactly what you are talking about. I experienced that shooting pain and bleeding for months, along with an extremely sharp pain in my right ovary. I'd describe mine like a knife being twisted and a cork being pushed into your bottom causing ALOT of pressure to build up! The pain would catch my breath and give me fever like symptoms. I had put it down to real bad period pains (before a confirmed diagnosis) until the pain was so bad on one night, not even co-codomol shifted the pain. I ended up in hospital and suffered with the pain for 8 hours!!! When I got to the hospital, I was left in the waiting room and by the time I saw the doctor the pain eventually subsided by itself. He suspected it was my appendix but no way was I going to stay in hospital for those unecessary tests when I knew deep down it was the endo. I would usually experience this pain a couple of days after my 2 day period so it was even more frustrating as I wasn't bleeding and it lasted up to 10 days!!! So, the hospital doc gave me a prescription with oral morphine and sent me on my merry way. That was in September 2017. I still suffered with those bottom pains right up until my lap in Feb 2018, as the oral morphine didn't really work on me. Eventually after my lap I had exicision surgery. At my follow up he confirmed my bowel was attached to my ovary and the endo was in the POD and had infiltrated my bowel. I really hope you get treated asap. Since my surgery I haven't had those bottom pains although I do get different symptoms now (which I won't bore you with today!) Good luck chick x
I had an MRI scan in March 2017, so when I finally had my lap after many cancellation they treated me at the same time. They exercised and released the lesions too. I think it's so important to have the right consultant. The one I waited for is a Lead in the country for Endo and he can also perform bowel surgery which always helps. Fingers crossed for you that all goes well. I've been reading this forum for over 12 months now and I feel for the thousands that still suffer lap after lap but there is some hope for some. Even if only for a short period itwill help you both physically and mentally as I know how hard it can be xx
