    Stool stuck in rectum!

    Hi, i've had ibs for 30 years and my symptoms have changed over the years. My anxiety surrounds my bowel movements and has done for the last 15 years. For the past 3 1/2 years I have been particularly worried/obsessed about my symptoms.

    I have had occasions of diahorrea, loose stools, normal stools, small hard stools, incomplete evacuation and also intermittant thin stools. I have got into the habit of keeping trying to pass a stool even though I don't have a particularly strong urge. I feel like something is about to pass but when I stop straining it goes away, i'm sure this what has always happened but my anxiety wants me to think that it's something sinister.

    I'm not coping too well atm and have been signed off my work for the last month, i'm due back this week but I really don't think i'm ready. I feel incredibly low and can't see any way out of this.

    Okay, I'll bite.

    If you've been straining repeatedly, that area is going to become hypersensitised. You need to retrain yourself to more healthy habits.

    Thanks,
    I know that this is the health anxiety that's causing me to obsess over my bowels and that doing this is making everything worse. I really am trying to keep myself together but finding it a struggle right now.

    Hang in there, okay? I know it's tough, but I have faith in you to make it out the other side.

    pushing when there`s nothing there is an odd thing to do. if you have got one stuck in the delivery area you could do worse than apply a liberal helping of vaseline to a digit of your choice and apply to the area.

    or take roughly half a pint of room temperature prune juice, drink steadily, then go and sit on the loo and you won`t have to wait too long before miracles happen

    Also take a fibre supplement.

    I understand that it may seem odd to you but you're not me! I feel like I need to pass a stool but when I try nothing happens, I know there's something there but I just can't get it to move (sorry tmi). I think I have mild ocd aswell which doesn't help.
