  • if it hurts when you have a bowel movement you may need to change your diet. more roughage. the area where your lower intestine connects to the bowel is there. raisen brand creal. drink lots of water. in other words get your pooper pooping better. you might be becoming impacted.

  • I have endometriosis, and I've had the kind of pain you described. I had surgery a few months ago, and I had adhesions binding my uterus to my bowel. The doctor separated them. Hopefully that's not what is going on with you.

  • sciatic is a tingling or burning sensation going down the leg so I wouldn't think it was that. Try eating more fiber and maybe take an enema to empty your bowels. See if that helps.

  • You could have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). It could also be trapped gas, or a variety of things. I recommend going to your doctor if it doesn't subside.
