This is not a very nice subject but I need to ask before I consult a dr. I am a relatively healthy 58yr old female. My bm's have always been easy and regular until lately (for the past month or so)when they have become infrequent and extremely large and hard. When I can finally go it is a real chore and I feel very light headed afterwards.
I have waves of abdfominal pain when I eat anything as it is digested. And today when I wiped myself I felt a very hard lump, not sore, right in front of my anus.
In the past I have been diagnosed with IBM and the only meds I am on are Toradol and Tylenol for arthritis.

Thanks

Very well could be a large internal hemriod. I would have it checked out. I had 5 removed at on time with one large internal. All the rest were just hanging around.
