You are a young man and experiencing symtoms of
Irritable Bowel Syndrome, constipation predominant.
This is a Brain-Gut interaction through a hormonal
mechanism, a serotonin related. What it does is, it
slows down your colon contractions and make it
hard to go and your stools are lumpy or harder.
This may be aggravated by your dietary habits like
lack of adquate fiber intake and fluid intake. You
need to eat whole grain cereal cereals, nuts and seeds
and fresh vegetables along with an adequate amount
of water. If your stool is very hard, you can start taking
some stool softeners such as Colace or Surfak daily.
To start to be regular, you can take a PEG solution,
(Polyethylene Glycol) such as Miralax. Start with 2-3
tablespoons a day till you start having diarrhea and then
start cutting back till you have regular movements.
As for the irritation around the rectum , from hemorrhoids,
you can use over the counter creams (Preparation-H or similar)
that contain 5-10% hydrocortisone along with a local anesthetic.
You can ask the pharmacist for recommendations.
Regular excercise will be helpful as well. Try to sit on the toilet
everyday at the same time whether you have the urge or not.
This will help you to regulate. If you have any significant bleeding,
please see a proctologist or a colo-rectal specialist.
I wish you well.

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
