I dont want to alarm people, because it may not be the case for you, but i feel like i need to say this. My younger brother had this problem, it started at.... i wanna say 7ish. My mother use to yell crying to my brother to please tell him why he keeps going in his pants and hiding the underwear. It was a very stressful time, he also had a rash on his bottom. The DR had told my mother that if he took fiber that everything was ok, and that the rash was from going in his pants. Well guess what, my brother is in his 20's now and had a mental break down, it turns out that my uncle sexually abused him. I read that as a child, if they are sexually abused, the sphincter ( i think) wont close normally, causing the accidents because the child cant hold it, it just comes out without them having any warning.View Thread
OMG, i had (still have occasionally) the same exact problem!!! OK so, mine might be a little different, it started with exactly what you have, and but I would wipe, then an hour or so later, i needed to wipe again!! It was insane! well then, i thought maybe i just wasn't flushing the bowels enough, well, i pushed too hard and gave myself a hemorrhoid, and it only made the issue worse. I took ALOT of fiber, and went to the DR he confirmed the hemorrhoid, and said that anal leakage is a symptom of hemorrhoids. So it seemed as if i had it, but made it worse by pushing to hard. anyway, that was a year ago, and i still get the leakage every once in a while. I too drink coffee first then have a BM, and make sure that everything is clean, but it seems to happen. I found that putting a little of the hemorrhoid cream helps when this happensView Thread
I have been suffering from heartburn my whole life, i am 24 right now, and i remember my mom taking me to the pediatrician as a child because of heartburn. i have had bad luck with Drs because all they tell me is to stay off of spicy food. but the thing is, everything i eat either gives me gas, usually belching, or bad heart burn. recently when i burp, and i have too much food in my stomach, the food will come up into my throat. Now, I've read about Barrett's esophagus, and i am terrified that i am at risk, even though I'm in my 20's. I am in the process of changing my Dr, because he didn't seem too concerned. I also get constipated, especially if i don't have my coffee in the morning. Due to constipation, i have hemorrhoids, although that has seemed to not be very much of an issue anymore. This week I've had bad episodes of heartburn and belching, I just don't know what to do anymore. Any one with similar issue have any advice or comments?
Ive tried papaya enzymes, and probiotics, these only seem to help a little bitView Thread
