Posted on Fri, 22 May 2015
Question: I am having lower pelvic pain, searing pain in the rectum and sometimes pain in my back on the right side. I have been eating better for the last 4 days and perhaps that is the problem. Can fiber via powder and increase in vegetables bring on such pain and discomfort?

Hi, thanks for using Herhcaremagic.

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

For my patients with similar complaints. I would like get complete history
Since how many days pain is there!
Any changes in intensity of pain?
Was there any blood in stool?
bowel movement increases such pain?

And I would have got few tests depending on clinical examination findings like sigmoidoscopy.

These are few measures which help to reduce pain.
Avoid sharp food which are difficult to digest.
Take plenty of water.
Sitz bath 3 times a day to reduce spasm of sphincter .

If pain not controlled with these measures you can use local anaesthetic cream for few days.

Hope I answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.

Wish you s good health.

Regards

In addition to your suggestions, should I also use a laxative?

What should my diet be like going forward? My goal is to reset my hormone receptors, eat more vegetables and exercise. It is hard to do those things when you are in pain and have no idea what would be good to eat.
