Common Questions and Answers about Colon pain symptoms treatment


Avatar n tn I have had bowel issues all my life. About three years ago I got sick of them and went for a colonoscopy. I was told I had no polyps, hemmeroids and minimal diverticulosis. Follow up in 5 years with repeat colonoscopy. About 6 months after this first colonoscopy I had rectal bleeding for a full day. Lots of it. Not just streaked stool but toilet bowl full of blood.

Avatar m tn I have had recurring left side lower back pain that I think could be related to the colon. It only occurs in the morning (I usually go to the bathroom to relieve in the morning) and has been happening for a few months now. My health problems started 2 years ago with pain on the left lower back as well, and doctors still have not been able to find a problem after tons of tests. I had gallbladder surgery about a year ago, and was fine for a while afterward.

1440074 tn?1283996071 starting on Sunday, I have been having very severe anal spasms along with a ton of pain, and some itching. It is very hard to sleep at night due to the pain. I have not been constipated, so I don't think it would be hemmorroids. It does not hurt to go to the bathroom either. The pain is pretty constant with spasms very often, and when I have a spasm the pain is so intense that it causes my entire body to tremble. I would describe the pain as almost like a bite near my butthole.

Avatar m tn My husband's 1st wife had colon cancer. It was discovered too late, & she passed away at the age of 24 saddly. Your symptoms don't sound like what my husband told me she had. She started having symptoms in her late teens... chronic constipation, stomach pain, etc. One day while she was away at college, she started throwing up really hard & thought she had a virus. She was staying really tired & just couldn't shake it.

However, I have been haunted by this for over 2 years now and am going in for another Colonoscopy. My Doctor claims I have Colon Spasms, but I also get feverish a lot and get the chills often.

Avatar f tn If two weeks of treatment haven't resolved the symptoms you need to be furter evaluated. This should be sooner rather than later. Typically, uncomplicated diverticulitis is symptomatically better within 7-10 days on treatment. Failure to improve makes one question the accuracy of the diagnosis or whether there could be a complication such as an abscess.
Avatar f tn Some people who have the disease have long periods without symptoms, even without getting treatment. Others with more severe disease will need long-term treatment or even surgery.
