I'm here because I don't know what else to do
I got diagnosed with IBS on April. Everything started because I got piles that lasted for more than a month, visited my doctor and he prescribed me with trimebutine, Pinaverium Bromide and some fiber supplements. Supposedly because I was terribly bloated.
I said hello to my IBS and goodbye to lactose, legumes and gluten among other things.
The thing is, the IBS medication started to make me experience bloating, gases and terrible abdominal pain, symptoms that I didn't have before!
and hemorroids didn't go away at all. On my last checkup doctor even told me that I had an anal fissure that I'm trying to treat but gets worse everytime my period comes.
i've been feeling miserable for the past 6 months.
I poop everyday, but I keep bleeding, it keeps hurting badly.
Recently I decided to stop taking my IBS medication, and the abdominal pain and gasses went away. I feel great overall...until it's time to poop or to get my period.
Tried to visit other doctors but they keep insisting on IBS they only tell me to consume more fiber and drink more water, which I do! but it isn't helping. Poop might be really soft but I still bleed and hurt.
Was I misdiagnosed? Why does the medication made me feel so terrible? and most importantly why do I keep getting rectal conditions everytime I get my period?
