Feeling of Something stuck in Rectum

Postby jimgreener » 05 Jan 2017, 21:49

For the past few weeks I've felt like I have something in my rectum, like I haven't emptied it completely and I have a piece of something stuck in there.

I can even feel a sort of tickling there, it's very annoying and disturbing. I feel like I may be leaking some feces but when I go to bathroom and wipe I don’t see anything. I have feeling of fullness, tightness and foreign body inside around anus area. Some days it's better and I don't feel anything. It is definitiely not unbearable but I don't like the feeling.

I don't have diarrhea or constipation, just gas and minor bloating in my colon. And it's more noticeable when I stand up.

I went to GI and he did a rectal exam ( using his finger I think) and he told me that he does see any hems, and really didn’t find anything.

He said I can go for colonoscopy but is not really needed.
I am worried if I go to colonoscopy it may make it worse.
I don't know how can these people get through medical schools when they can't find shit!

What should I do?
Is it some parasites? Some worm?

I have been researching the symptoms and the closest I could come to is anal fissure and I have no idea what that is and how to treat it.

Please help!

Hi Jim,
Could be a number of things, internal hemmies, or perhaps a minor fissure that has irritated the rectum causing inflammation. The feeling isn't uncommon though, see here:
If there are no visible signs of anything, no itching, and no pain, no blood, no stool colour changes/consistency, no changes to the skin around the anus (i.e. everything is otherwise normal)- then I would be tempted to try a hemorrhoid suppository or two, and if no improvement go back to your GI in a week or two.

Your GI may not be able to see/feel internal hemms with a digital exam - so could be missing them. If it continues you could perhaps ask for a rigid sigmoidoscopy - which is a closer look inside the anus. Based on what you've said it doesn't sound like worms or anything as I would expect itching.

Key thing is if it doesn't go away, then go back to your Doc. Doesn't sound serious to me, but don't ignore it.

Good luck, LemonMan
