I was diagnosed with microscopic colitis in the past and I have been dealing with GI problems for years but I've never experienced anything like I have today.
About 9 hours ago I suddenly started getting intense and painful urges to make a movement but every time I tried, either nothing would come out or only very small pieces would come out. I took some Dulcolax to try and make it easier. A couple hours later, the urges and pain continued but I started passing small amounts of diarrhea instead of solid stool. But whats strange is I have to strain very hard to even get a tablespoon or two of liquid out (this doesn't make sense because liquid usually comes out so easily without effort). Occasionally, the only thing I can pass are these little whitish globs (which I've noticed in my stool in the past). So 9 hours later I still feel like I need to pass more. For a few hours it seemed like I was running to the bathroom every 10 minutes only to pass a tiny bit or none liquid at all each time. However, the urges to go are becoming less frequent as time passes. But now the pain keeps waking me up so I can't sleep.
What could the explanation be? Could I have a mass blocking my movements? Has anyone experienced this before?View Thread
Yes, I was diagnosed with microscopic colitis and I do have constipation issues. I fluctuate between constipation and diarrhea frequently. Also, I have bleeding at least a couple times a month, which is supposedly rare for microscopic colitis. Sometimes I wonder if I had the right diagnosis. I would like to start going back to my GI but medical bills are just so expensive!View Thread
