Okay peeps this may sound a bit weird or gross and I do apologise but I need answers. I have had an aching pain in my left side near the groin area. It pulls when I walk or turn over in bed. For the last two days its been even weirder. As many of you will know our bowels tend to suffer a lot with our conditions and mine is definitely been suffering. There are so many things that I cannot eat now that I used to love, simply because my bowels can't deal with it. Anyway (went a bit off kilter then) when I went the loo yesterday (okay weird horrible bit coming up) and opened my bowels I could literally feel it inside, it's like I could feel the release inside my abdomen. Have you ever had this feeling? Then today when I went the loo for a number 1 and pretty much the same thing happened again. I got a huge pain in my left side (it's always this side) and again could feel the release inside my abdomen as it happened. Have you ever experienced anything like this? I don't know about you but when I go the loo these days I do tend to get some pain and I end up breathing through the pain as if I'm in labour!! I went to the doctor earlier this week to have a check up of my meds and ask about a few other things ( I literally had list like I'd give father christmas) and so didn't get round to mentioning the problem. The feeling inside the abdomen has only happened within the last couple of days but the pain in the left side has been constant. I said to my husband that I should go back to talk to her about it but he said ring up on Monday for a phone consult. My GP has been great but I don't want to be bothering her for every single thing. Should I ring for a phone consult or ring up on Monday and make an actual appointment to see her? I would love to hear from you, mostly so I know that I'm not alone or been taken over by aliens. I use humour to help me cope with this blinking illness. I think if I didn't laugh I would literally cry my eyes out every single day so I say funny things but I am serious about my pain and wouldn't make a mockery out of our illnesses It's just that we all cope in different ways. If you can help me I really really would love it if you could. So many thank yous and gentle hugs xxxx
