I have been in the “poo mud” for a while now. Started 4 1/2 years ago. No warning from my butt which says, “get to bathroom now!”. Horrible bouts of diarrhea with unknown cause and now fecal incontinence with severe anal nerve pain. Sphincter muscles no longer function. Ahhh… bottle of Immodium is a double edged sword. If I take one, then there is no poo for a week, which causes more anal pain and stomach pain. Nothing has helped and doctors really don’t know what to do with me. I refuse to have a Colostomy as I know that will cause more complications for me. So I sit in the “poo gutter”.
Hi Cathy Sorry to hear this. We seem to have opposite effects granted by the magic wand of MS! Sure u’ve been thru this – any drugs u take exacerbating things? I had one that I took for a while & then suddenly did this! Also separately would suddenly just go with seconds of warning! This has just disappeared over recent years…. Sheesh!
