    Anal fissure treatment?

    I’ve been struggling with anal fissures the past few months and I’m hoping someone has some tips for me. I’ve taken all the necessary measures to add more fiber into my diet—consuming benefiber, more water, & fruits/veggies/whole grains—along with taking stool softeners daily. My stool at the moment is generally pretty soft, except for the INITIAL stool. It is extremely painful when I first start my bowel movement, but after the initial stool passes, the rest is very soft & causes no pain....

    Long story about stomach/stool problems

    Hi all, About four months ago, I got extremely anxious (and still am to this day) and started experiencing gas, diarrhea, confiscation and stomach pain. After a while, I noticed maroon blood on my toilet paper after bowel movements. I went to my GP and they sent me to a gastroenterologist where they did an exam and found three internal hemorrhoids which they treated with rubber bands. Thankfully the bleeding stopped, but some days I still have constipation or diarrhea along with gas and slight stomach....

    I got my gastro test result and I got severe anxiety

    I had all these symptoms for almost 3 years ( diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, bad smell, fatique) and I went to my new doctor snd he ordered 25 tests for me. Most of my tests arrived with normal results my last 2 test results were not. One test showed grossly abnormal level of fecal fat found in stool . The other test showed slight inflammation in the body. Although my red and blood cells showed normal. I'm so scared that my results may mean cancer or cystic fybrosis because when I read on....

    Diarrhea Turned Chronic

    I was diagnosed with IBS quite some time ago. My gastro tests were normal. This was about two years ago. I had occasional bouts with painful cramps and diarrhea and sometimes constipation but I was able to lead a fairly normal life and could make plans to go with confidence. I merely made sure to scout out where the rest room was when I got there--just in case. Nearly a month ago my diarrhea episodes suddenly turned daily. The worst aspect is that it doesn't all come out at once but in several....

    Lower left abdomen discomfort

    33 years old here. Wife and I moved a couple weeks ago and since then, my lower left abdomen has been feeling kind of a emptiness or discomfort while i'm sitting. It usually goes away if im standing or sleeping. It's never painful, just feels like a cramp sometimes. I was afraid of cancer so i'm having blood tests done in a few days. I also have been trying to lose a few pounds (195 to 190 right now), so i'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I was also drinking alcohol....

    Upper stomach pain

    I've had severe upper stomach pain for years. Gall bladder removed 2 yrs ago. Endoscopy showed inflammation. I've noticed the pain after eating fatty/greasy foods, and artificial sweeteners. I wake up in pain if I sleep on my back or left side. Pain can last several hours. I sometimes feel my stomach make gurgling sounds. I've wondered if it's trapped gas. My Dr wants me to take Rantidine, but the side effects, im rather weary to take it and not knowing if it's going to help my....

    Tapeworm?????

    I’ve been to multiple doctors recently after my cat got tapeworms from fleas. I was first diagnosed with constipation, then I was diagnosed with IBS, and then the last few days I’ve had terrible stomach pains so when I went to the bathroom I found a few clear short ribbon like things in my stool. I went to the ER and they looked at my like I was crazy but they sent my sample off to the lab. My bloodwork came back fine but they decided to treat me for it anyways to be safe. My symptoms are no appetite....
