Sharp stomach pain on straining while passing stools, excessive stomach gas. Cure?

Hello. For quite a long while now I experience a pain in my stomach when straining on the toilet, this can even be a very slight strain, it often hurts too much to strain hard anyway! I m wondering what this could be as it s a horrible pain? I don t know if it s related but I do get quite gasy too in the afternoons and quite often get funny tummy! Can you help with any answers please?

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
pain in tummy while passing stools could be coz of either rectal inflammation or sensitivity
if your stool consistency is normal there is no blood or mucus in stools then not much to worry
it could be just irritable bowel
can try some fibre contents and mild smooth muscle relaxants available for bowel which do not cause constipation and increase hydration, avoid straining it may aggrevate the problem
hope this ans your query
feel free to get back in case of any questions
wish you a speedy recovery
