Hi. I’ve just stumbled upon this site in my research and am hoping you guys can point me in some direction. Sorry it’s long!
I have suffered constipation my whole life. I remember hospital trips when I was young for such severe abdominal pain and the end result being laxatives. That’s been a recurrent thing throughout my 37 years. I try not to take anything but often go for a week or two without going to the bathroom. I feel sick quite often and always have these weird noises coming from my ridiculously bloated stomach. I often have pain (daily but some days far worse than others, with stabbing cramping pain differing from the constant low level cramps). I have had many tests, no food allergies found, have had low iron on a couple of occasions so I have had a couple of iron infusions, low b12 so had injections for that. A colonoscopy 10 years ago found my bowel was a foot longer with a ‘redundant loop’. I put that down to why I’m always constipated. I now have hideous hemorroids and in the last few days also have something down there that I’m scared is related to a prolapse of some sort. I’ve got to the point where I can’t keep doing this. I’m in pain and discomfort constantly and the thought that I’ve somehow strained to the point things are ending up where they shouldn’t be has scared the daylights out of me. Research pointed me towards IBS C but I’m unsure where to go from here? Im sorry it’s so long.
