Brief Answer:
Worm infestation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Hemorrhoids can present with pain, bleeding and itching.
As you are having only itching with discharge, the other possibilities to be ruled out are worm infestation like pin worm, undiagnosed small fistula, vaginal discharge mistaken for anal discharge etc.
By clinical examination the exact cause of the problem can be identified and treated.
So, please do consult your doctor and get examined, if needed take the support of ultrasound to rule out internal issues. Stool microscopic examination helps in finding the possibility of worms.
Check for hemoglobin and blood sugar levels estimation also to rule out provoking factors.
Antihelmenthic drugs and anti allergic drugs can help in decreasing itching due to worm infestation. If any other problem is found to be cause, treatment can be taken accordingly.
Take care.

For the last 2 weeks I have been having a brown liquid anal discharge when I pass wind and have only been passing loose stools until this morning when I had a normal bowel movement . I have always had a problem with opening my bowels but have had a bowel cancer test in the last 6 months which proved clear. Is there anything to be worried about. I look forward to your reply. Thankyou.

I haven't had a bowel movement in over a week. At first I had a lot of gas and would have almost liquid bowel movement just a little but often. I also had a lot of mucus. Now I'm not having gas and not moving, more like a full stomach feeling. This being Sunday, I cannot see a doctor. I WILL PROBABLY NEED AN EXRAY ANYWAY, SO SHOULD I GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM AND GET IT NOW. I LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN OF 6000 PEOPLE
