Brief Answer:
Most likely internal hemorrhoids.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. Your problem can be most likely internal hemorrhoids. Better to have a digital examination by General surgeon to rule out this. In case of doubtful diagnosis proctoscopy will be needed.

For this you can take stool softeners. Various stool softeners like lactulose are available. Not habit forming stool softeners like softovac also can be used. Take more water and dietary fiber.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.

I can not go to the bathroom. I have tried everything from laxatives, senna tea, vegetables, fruit, magnesium citrate , fiber capsule and drinks. I constantly feel it swirrling in my stomach . Even with the magnesium citrate my stomach just rumbles and if I m really luck a small bowel movement will happen not not a lot. My stomach hurts all the time, I m bloated and uncomfortable. This has been going on for several months now. What else can I try?

I have Chronic Pancreatitus. The only thing that helps the pain is morphine . ( I go to a pancreatic clinic monthly at u-mass hospital in Ma.) To be comfortable I should be taking morphine during the day and at night but because of constipation I sometimes skip my morning dose. I had part of my colon removed and the rest are very sensitive so I have to stay low fiber . What else can I do about the constipation? I currently take Amitiza twice daily as well as 3 softners at night.

Hello, I am a young woman with no health problems, NKA or any remarkable health history. For about a week now, all of a sudden, I ve been having what I assume is diarrhea . However, the stool is the same - greenish, flaky, watery, crumbly. I have abdominal pains that come and go, but I feel it more often in my upper abdomen . There is a sudden urgency to go when I have to, it seems to come from nowhere. My eating habits/drinking habits have not changed for a few years, so I do not believe it to be food-related. The only thing I can really say is that prior to this, I only have a BM every couple days, but I have never had a problem with them even though I eat normally and do get fiber into my diet . Any suggestions? Thank you so much for your time and help.

I m passing fuzzy stools . It s like diarrhea but it sinks and is fuzzy instead of solid stool. Do keep in mind that there is both stool and this fuzz. I just had a colonoscopy on Monday, so I m assuming my colon is just passing extra mucous or moisture. Also I ve been eating a lot more fiber . What could this fuzzy stuff be?
