I'm 46 years old,no children. A few months ago I suffered a sharp pain in my lower body. The pain died down but an intense numbness & soreness has settled in my buttocks and around the anal area. I don't have a problem going to the bathroom; no blood, no pain- bathroom habits have not change. I have sciatica but it's control with physical Therapy. I'm afraid that I may have polyps in my colon. Has anyone else experience this type of situation? View Thread
One evening after a very busy day of desk work( I got up maybe 2-3 times in an8hour shift) I started walking home when an dull ache, then pounding pain, gripped my pelvis,my entire back side and I started to have colon spasms. The pain was so intense that I couldn't walk. I had to sit at a bus stop for 15 minutes before I inched my way to the subway station for home. When I sat down it hurt. I went home and sat on a heating pain. When I went to the bathroom, I check for blood in my stool and uringe but there was none. However, moving my bowels was uncomfortable, Urinating was not. I had a bad yeast infection and I planned to purchase over the counter meds to take care of it. It always work for me. The unbearable pain has gone but I still suffer bouts of colon spasms and soresness in my pelvis area. There isn't a drop of blood. I've checked everytime I go to the bathroom since this started. Any idea what this could be?View Thread
