Do you have pain while sitting ?Does it hurt to cycle ?
Not really its more of a discomfort now and again
Have you tried avoid cycling?
Does the pain increase while passing stools ?
It could be either sore muscle due to excessive cycling or tail bone pain.
When I say pain its a feeling that should not be there,
Rectal pain is usually associated with some bowel symptoms which you don't have.
Avoid cycling for some time. Take a anti-inflammatory like motrin for couple of days. Warm compress over the region may help.
I go regular , there,s no blood , but its hard to explain , last night before I had to pass I could feel a slight discomfort
If the symptoms improve then you can continue it some more time. Rarely cycling can induce prostate problems.
Feel a little bit bloated aswell
This can inflame the prostate and there is inside discomfort which is hard to describe.
I had an infection in my prostate when I was younger so know the feeling of a problem in my prostate , it does not feel like that
I felt I was going to the loo all the time but its not like that
Do you smoke ?
History of bowel cancer in the family ?
I may have a cigar on special occasions but thats not very often
I would advise you to stop cycling for some time and see if this improves the situation. At the same time get a stool test for infection as well as occult blood.
We will not loose any time if it is some bowel problem.
Take a short course motrin/ advil when you stop cycling, this will give the healing a boost.
It feel like its just inside the rectum
Then there is only one way to find it- by doing a rectal examination and proctoscopy
Would you advise seeing my doctor
Prosctoscopy involves seeing inside the rectum with an instrument at the doctor's office.
You can get the stool test at the same time.
What would the stool sample do
Just check for parasites and infection.
It would also check for non- visible blood in it.
If there was a major problem would there be signs
Ok I,ll contact my doctor
Like blood in stools, sense of incomplete evacuation. weight loss etc
No weight loss ,no blood
These are good signs.
I,ll go see my doctor
All the best and take care
