... due to my insurance not wanting to cover it unless I tied another drug first. Which I did, Apriso. (Did not work at all) Any how, hopefully it gets approved soon. I don't have pain, but the bleeding and mucus are there when I have bowel movements. Does anyone else experience super loud "grumbling sounds" from the tummy? Identical to those of being super hungry. Is it gas? How can I stop it? Proctitis is only supposed to be inflammation of rectum/anus isn't it? So why the discomfort in my entire abdominal area? If anyone can tell me how they control symptoms, I'd greatly appreciate it :)
Once any part of the abdominal cavity becomes inflamed the entire abdomen suddenly is squished together. The body responds to inflammation frequently by growing more connective tissue (e.g. fascia or scar tissue) - as the name implies, connective tissue creates connections on the body. If it starts creating connective tissue in your abdominal area that's restrictive, then many problems can ensue. It may be painful to breathe, random and frequent bouts of nausea may occur, the digestive system can get all out of whack and that leads to even more issues.
There are physical therapists who specialize in pain in the abdomen from inflammation or any pelvic area really - sometimes they'll call they're work Pelvic Floor Therapy and this makes most people think of women who have had babies and suffer from prolapse, but that's because it's he most common problem treated and it's also a very common problem. Pelvic Floor Therapy is also for those of us who have too much tension (versus too much relaxation with prolapse) - if your abdomin has a pulling or tearing like sensation when you gently stretch it that could be a minor sign this is part of your issue. Even if you don't need PT, it would be a good idea to try and include gentle exercise as this helps to loosen the body and aids in healing (as long as your healthy enough for exercise).
