Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health Forum. â
Based on the history and the description of the cramps and specifically, in absence of major symptoms âlike fever, loss of weight, appetite, bloody stools, etc, you may be having Irritable bowel syndrome ââ(IBS).â
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic functional disorder characterized by cramping abdominal âpain or discomfort with alterations in bowel habits (bloating, constipation, and diarrhea). These âsymptoms usually are present for at least 12 weeks in a patient during the previous one year, and âunfortunately the onset or subsidence cannot be predicted. â
IBS is diagnosed by its signs and symptoms and by the absence of other diseases. IBS does not cause âany permanent damage or any serious illness but the symptoms cause severe discomfort & distress âaffecting an individuals work, ability to travel and attend social events. â
Most symptoms of IBS can be controlled with diet, stress management, and prescribed medications ââ(laxatives, antidiarrheals, antispasmodics, or antidepressants). â
For symptom relief, you may consider to take antacids for acid relief, activated charcoal for bloating âand stomach gas issues.â
You may consider to consult your physician or a gastroenterologist for counselling if you have any âadditional doubts. â
I am 22 years old male also suffering from the same symptom since last 7 years. I was in a HSC when I felt irritation and inflammation in my anus. Whenever I hv stool a stickly white or yellow mucus dischrge with fishy odour comes fom my anus. If I sit for long time I experence some wetness in my anus followed by fishy smell. I am not alcoholic neitther I take coffee still I have this problem. Even my best friends fom school tease me indirectly by passing comments about it and so do my college classmates.
When I go to class people around me experience some fishy smell fout of me. I stopped thinking about it. But as soon as i visit class or college people experienced same thing and passed weird comments about it.The problem is still there nw i completed my graduation. I also visited plenty of doctors and they told me its in your mind. Even my parents tell me same thing that u r perfectly fine. But I knw what the problem is as it has been 7 years. I also tried many medicines but none helped me. I also used Diltiazem hydrochloride cream it helped me little. I also take sitz bath but it is also nt useful. Yesterday I took saline sitz bath it helped me a lot I dint xperence smell bt i m nt sure it may come. I also had a barium enaema and colonoscopy test done both were negative. Recently I visited a doctor and he diagnosed me with anal fissure. I am very depressed DR PlZ HELP ME in sorting out this things and suggest me some medicines to cure this
