Also, with the sharp pain area has been a near passing out feeling when sitting as in driving. All physical examinations seem perfect, though these were routine examinations.

Hi, thank you for posting.

I have gone through your query and I understand your concerns.

Your symptoms are caused by colopathy that is manifested with digestive and bowel transit.
In these cases, to my patients I recommend to follow these guidelines.
1. Eat a lot of grain, fruits and vegetables.
2. Eliminate spicy foods, carbohydrates, alcoholic and carbonated drinks from your diet.
3. Quit smoking(if you do smoke).

However a fibrorectosigmoidoscopy is necessary for the diagnosis.

All the best.
Dr. Behar.
