For the past 4 days I have had a constipation feeling despite going to the bathroom every day!! A family member said it may be Piriformis Syndrome a dull ache in anus in a piriformis muscle lies deep in the gluteus. Giving a dull ache in anus and feeling need to go to the bathroom and you cannot go.
It seems to come on at night and after I have food. If I lay in bed it seems to help better than sitting in char or on the couch.
A family member said it could be Rectal tenesmus or Piriformis Syndrome and Treadmill use can be related to Piriformis Syndrome.
She also said some people have Inflammatory Bowel Disease cause of prolonged inflammation of the digestive tract or Crohn’s disease that can cause inflammation in any part of the digestive tract or ulcerative colitis a inflammation of the large intestine.
Note I have not seen any diarrhea ,bleeding. Also no pain, cramping, and bloating in the abdominal or little to no stool is passed.
This is really strange for new year:eek::eek::eek: I got a treadmill and now I’m getting this problem.
I’m thinking hernia maybe? The difference in muscles used/impact aggravating an existing condition? But I am not a doctor nor have I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express – so call a pro if it isn’t gone like real soon.
Could be sciatica related. Could be how you are walking on the treadmill versus the posture you use when you walk on pavement. It could also be a change in diet. If you know it’s not a change in diet, I recommend checking with a doctor.
Ok, semi-serious guess, though I’m really going out on a limb with it:
How active were you before procuring the treadmill? If you were fairly inactive and this is new for you, is it possible that you are just feeling muscle soreness and pain from your gluteal muscles, lower core, and maybe even from your pelvic floor?
Living Well Is Best Revenge and susan I’m not a hypochondriac running to the ER every time I have a problem.
I think I should give it at least a week and if symptoms don’t get better than go.
I don’t think this is emergency ( where I have to go to the ER ASAP) it is not like I’m having stomach pain, bloating, blood, diarrhea or little to no stool is passed.
I would be more scared that it could be some thing if I never gone on treadmill.
I was just wondering about other people that go on the treadmill if they have that problem.
Also I had Cabbage that day and the next day is when this all started. So it could be Cabbage or treadmill.
Some people Cabbage have hard time breaking down and cause flatulence build up and digest problem. When I do pass flatulence and go to the problem it does seem to help. And some times it feels like I have to pass flatulence, like it is build up. And when I pass flatulence it helps.
I don’t think inflammatory Bowel Disease like Crohn’s disease or cancer would give you relive going to the bathroom and passing flatulence.
