Question: I've had a problem since last April. I am leaking a clear liquid from my anus 24/7. I've been to many GI docs and an internal med doc and have had colonoscopies, CT Scans, an MRI, Stool samples, blood tests and the diagnosis that was made was IBS. I'm thinking there is something else causing it. It is a liquid that irritates my skin and is always clear. It smells similar to urine. I've felt more bloated too.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking.
I read carefully all your concerns and I understood your query.
You are reporting to have clear liquid mucous from your anal sphincter.
To my opinion you should discuss with your GI specialist about:
- anal - rectal Endoscopy ultrasound it will better evaluate if there is something a outside the rectum that causes you that.
- anal manometry to rule out anal sphincter incontinence.
Hope it was helpful to you!

Yes, I've also had the manometry test and had normal results except for feeling "full". I'll have to ask about the other test though. I was also diagnosed with a small fissure. What would you recommend to take over the counter for that? Could that be a cause for my problem?
