My IBS seems to have flared up terribly since middle of Feb this year. I went to my GP last week and she prescribed Apercap (peppermint capsules) as the Mebeverine I had last year made my bloating feel even worse. The peppermint hasnt really helped either.
I feel like i constantly have wind stuck in my rectum and have felt like this for a full week now. Nothing is shifting it and the the peppermint is not helping either. I am now wondering if it is even wind - it passed for about five mins after a BM then comes back. I am stressed and worried it is a tumor. I tried yesterday to see if it was an incomplete bowel movement perhaps causing it so after my normal morning bowl movement and still feeling like something was stuck later on I found that after forcing and squeezing a tiny bit of poo (sorry for TMI) would come out.
I had period style cramps most of friday evening and saturday but these have calmed down now and I am just getting the sensation of low back pain and needing to go the toilet but feeling it is all blocked up and can't go
I have an appointment with a nurse practitioner later on in my practice - does anybody else have these sort of feelings or symptoms?
what medication is there than can help as I feel everything is just making me worse I have scared I have bowel cancer or ovarian cancer as I do get a lot of bloating too
I just feel helpless and dont know what to do
