Constipated, cramps, diarrhea and extreme pain.

    Warning; graphic thread

    Hey guys.. I'm a bit scared as to what this could be. I've been working hard with next to nothing sleep since sunday. Tried a round of aneros on monday, with no effect I might add. Yesterday at work my stomach was rumbling all day. Went to pass a little stool, that didn't help. What came out was too little, thought I was constipated. It kept rumbling in the evening after we ordered and ate a pizza.

    I woke up 4:30 AM (today - thursday) with an intense stomach cramp. Stretching across the entire stomach area up to solar plexus.

    I stumbled over to the bathroom. After a few minutes with hellish pain i passed pne little round stool. It felt dry coming out. More painful cramps brought on a long snake. I hoped I was done. The pain was immense. I tried drinking water, started to cold-sweat, got the shivers an was feverish. I had a few more rounds of diarreah while the cramps were settling down. I felt I had problems "taking a crap", like I needed to, but nothing came out.
    I fell asleep on the bathroom floor.

    This morning i have been fine. Felt like I needed to poop, but there only came one really tiny thing out. Next there came something that felt slimey coming out. It was dark red/ light brown and "bubbly". This has me worried. I touched it with the paper, and it was clearly SLIME.

    Now... All this, especially the slime and the pain I had has scared me to believe this might me cancer developing down there? Constipation isn't unfamiliar due to aneros play(progasm). But the incredable pain and cramping I had, is not common to me. Neither is the slime as far as I know. I actually almost passed out from the cramps and pain. The pain was located all over my stomach. All the way up to solar plexus.

    Usually food poisoning diarreah is ALOT more of the waterish stuff. This was only a couple of "squirts".

    Anyone know what this could be, and when/if I should get it checked out with a "rear entry cam"?

    I feel this community might have more insight into the medical aspect of the "plumbing". Maybe this is aneros related, maybe someone here has experienced it before? It might be as easy as constipation due to an enlarged prostate..? Who knows..

    Well, I guess I'm not in ready yet.. for walking into the docs office saying that I lube up three times a week and shove big but plugs up there called Aneros. And that he has to keep that in mind while exploring the options.

    He'd probably send me home and tell me to come back in a week if it doesn't fix itself. And I really want to look at experiences from the community first. Its NOT normal what we do, so the medical profession doesn't have that in mind exploring the possible reasons. Like constipation due to enlarged prostate, and/or IBS (not IBD)

    As for other people reading this, they need to do things their own way.. So please @anerico, don't make this thread about some hypothetical future reader! Thank you for your concern, now please exit this thread.

    @Alex Go to a doctor asap

    Severe gastroenteritis can cause this as can divericulitis. If it doesn't resolve itself in a few days get it checked. It is most likely unrelated to the aneros use. If you are uncomfortable discussing aneros use, just describe the symptoms.

    @Alex_xxx I doubt highly that your progasm caused any of this.  I have NEVER heard of any Aneros device causing any type of digestive problems (if anything they usually help) such as constipation.  If you already had some problems it may have agitated them.  A poor diet however over a long period of time will cause all sorts of digestive problems, about half of my family has had colon cancer at one point and time or another due to poor diet choices over their lifetime.  You should visit your doctor as soon as possible. The fact that you are afraid to see him because you dont want to tell him about your Aneros use is ASININE!!!! Trust me when people come in with jelly jars stuck up their ass that is MUCH more embarrassing.  Do you think this doctor does not know he see's gay patients who probably use anal toys all the time (not saying you are gay just saying doctors arent that naive...)??? You are not out of the ordinary and that is no reason to put your health at risk.  If untreated it can lead to much worse scenarios.  Just a thought as well, if you can find a doctor that uses holistic medicine more than likely you will get better results.  As holistic doctors actually take into account the whole picture, they dont just send you home or out of the office with a bunch of meds or recommend a procedure that would insure them or the pharmaceutical companies some cash.  They will take into account your aneros use, emotional state, etc...to ensure optimal health and your best overall well being.  I feel they are better because I go to one after being screwed around by regular doctors.  I'll never go back to a regular old western medicine nut as they dont really care about your health (at least most of them dont in my experience).

    @devajones- well said! 
    It is troubling that people with possibly serious medical conditions might take advice from this site instead of seeking professional care

    Smartest thing I've read all day. I've decided to give it a couple of days.. I agree that it might be one of those two. Especially the last one can make slime with blood leak into the anal canal.

    @devajones.. You've never become constipated after a few hours progasm use?? Really??? Wow..

    @didymus & @anerico
    Seeking immediate healthcare is ALSO advice from this forum. And why should one seek immediate healthcare if things are going better? It might be nothing. I don't see how an unnessecary coloskopy examination would help if its as simple as the Norovirus.

    The Progasm Classic was the first Aneros I used. I have two hour sessions with it, and never had any constipation issues

    @alex- sounds like you want to serve as your own doctor. Your initial post made it sound as if you were really concerned - I guess you are not than concerned that you are ok doing nothing for now?

    Well see when I have my next BM @didymus. Preferably, I would like it to work itself out without the need for medical attention. Still, my concerns are real. But I have learned to give things time. Haste usually leads to bad decisions..!

    Hey, Alex.  Sounds like nothing acutely serious has happened through the day as you're still posting here with no reference to significant symptoms like would have made you go to the doctor or to the emergency room already.  I've PM'd you also, so get back with me on the questions I asked you.

    Proper Aneros use will not cause the symptoms you've described and nothing you've related makes me think you have cancer or something really bad right now, so relax a bit.  And relating to a doctor that you use an Aneros will help him or her none as what you experienced is not caused by Aneros use.  Even a doctor's careful examination of your rectum and anus will show no sign that you use an anal toy, so don't get concerned about having to be embarrassed or "found out".

    Get back with me on how you're doing.  I'll be the first to tell you if you need to seek medical attention right away.

    @Alex_xxx,
    @slimjm is a doctor, so he knows what he's is talking about.

    If you are reading this now and you have not had any improvement to your condition, may I suggest you GO TO A DOCTOR NOW!

    Almost certainly, what you are suffering is not Aneros related and is not relevant to what you need to tell your doctor. Just describe your symptoms and take it from there.

    GOOD LUCK. Keep us posted.

    @Alex_xxx did you just get snarky with me?  I honestly came on here to be nice and help you and thats the response you give me.  Not to mention how you are talking to other.  If you are going to be a complete asshole then dont come on the forum and ask for help.  Yes I may be a woman, but I have a husband who uses the progasm....and being his wife I know if it caused him to be constipated or not.  So I'm not talking out of my ass.  Whatever dude....apparently you have some time of shame problem.  If you are ashamed of using the aneros then stop. If you dont want to hear all these great people try to help you and tell you to go to a doctor who is professionally trained...then dont ask.  I mean what did you expect??? However...dont EVER worry about me trying to help you EVER again.

    Boy I tell you...women haters....what are we to do with them....

    Come on Deva, where do you get off speaking with such authority? "I have NEVER heard of any Aneros device causing any type of digestive problems (if anything they usually help) such as constipation." Now just how many people have you observed to conclude this. Your phony husband??

    Am I the only one here that sees through all this? It is quite obvious you are a male, and snarky at that.
  • devajonesdevajones
    Posts: 157
    Lol i guess you are mad at the post i left for you a while back.  I dont really care if you think I'm a male or not...I read this forum...there has not been one man to say oh my god my Progasm gives me such constipation....but if you think I'm a man go right ahead.  It doesnt bother me....I have no reason to lie. Yes I am snarky when pushed, however the fact that you took time to type that and there is somebody on this very thread that agreed with me and said their progasm never caused them constipation...says you are absolutely and idiot.  An idiot with too much time on his hands.  Do your aneros products cause you to be constipated?? My biology degree says that there is no anal toy that can cause constipation.  That is just science, constipation is caused by a diet lacking fiber...hell he admitted after having stomach pain to going to eat some more pizza i'm sure that is totally healthy... Maybe you should read more and smoke weed less...I think the two brain cells you have are suffering. 

    Also to further make you look like the jackass you are...maybe you should read more of my posts.  There are things that i share with other people about women that a man would not be well versed on. 
  • GilmanGilman

    I didn't know a biology degree taught the one singular cause of constipation. I hate to surprise you but there are multiple causes of constipation, some quite serious and others benign. But you know it all, right pspot, I mean deva.
  • devajonesdevajones
    Posts: 157
    For the record biology degrees do not however you do study the digestive system very closely it takes up a lot of your course work.  Anal toys is NOT one of the causes of constipation...and I am not @Pspotsquirter...if you would read the pegging thread you would see that i berated him and we fell out.  He is no longer speaking to me which does not bother me in the least.  however if you want to equate me to him go right ahead.  I mean we dont even have the same typing style....i saw the message he left on your profile after he ripped you a new one. trying to smooth things over with you.  It does not in the least bother me that you think I'm Pspotsquirter.  Go ahead keep making yourself look like an idiot.  It would help if you read more of the forum notice that what you suggest makes no sense.

    As to your some are quite serious and others are benign comment...funny you didnt tell alex to go to the doctor.  you self diagnosed him...i hope you are a doctor....i told him to seek medical help...you simply put his "fears" to rest and he might be worse off for it.  I mean have you examined his ass???

    For the record I would suggest you take your grievances up with @Pspotsquirter, as I am not the one who started that whole weed thread, and leave me out of it.  I have nothing to do with your anger...are you searching the WHOLE forum trying to pick out if it is him or not???  most of your advice does tell people to just smoke some weed.  If that is all you can contribute to this forum then so be it.  Don't come at me attacking me because you are mad at him.  I did nothing to you, nor did I ever direct anything in this thread to you.

    How can @devajones be me? Your bum has had one too many a toke, in order for you to say that!
    @Devajones
    I was not trying to smooth anything over with @Gilman- the weed ass. The message I sent him was to let him know my last two posts on the weed thread, were in jest and for illustrative purposes. I have not fallen out with you. You did not berate me, as I do not care what your opinion of me may be. Don't have such a high opinion of yourself. If I remember correctly, you were put in check by Ruby Ryder.

    You make me grin. Thanks, I needed the smile. If it weren't for all your grammatical errors I would have assumed you were talking about a college biology course, now I see it's high school.

    It must have been an advanced class because I don't remember learning to resection a colon, repair a fistula or drain an abscess in my biology classes.

    Sorry you have such an anger issue, a little projection, perhaps?

    I have suffered severe constipation as a child, thanks to the progasm ice (and subsequently the tempo) i was able to completely rid myself of these problems to such a great extent that every time i go to the bathroom i can clear myself completely out as if i had an enema. I went from going between 1 and 3 times a week to 2 - 5 times "a day".

    Aneros use definitely helps or in my case heals constipation, it has also healed many peoples haemorrhoids.

    @Alex_xxx.

    Sorry to hear of this malady and have a 'partial feel' for what you are experiencing.  First off, suggest you take @Slimjm up on his grace and offer to be alert to your symptoms/changes together with his advise to send you to either the ER or your Doc as he considers appropriate.

    I am a IBS victim and have been wrapped about the capstan  by it many times over the last 40 years. Mine is the "Alternating" version which resembles your symptoms however my extremes are milder than yours.  If this is the case, you'll probably live through this with just fluids and the moderate diet that your own Doc and @slimjm suggests. Once you heal make a concerted to find your own way, looking at various combinations of Fiber, Fat, Carbs, Proteins and Aneros sessions.  :)

    My own experience, during my initial year dictated that I give up the luxury of most Waterbased lubes, most particularly anything with Glycerin.

    I've also suffered one total bowel obstruction which brought me to the ER where they hooked me to a Morphine pump where I could self administer pain killing meds until the OR was ready to go.  That malady was not a result of any anal play.  A tiny blood clot had shut down 6 inches of my small intestine which died. Now, with a small intestine that's a foot shorter I go along with life as before.  I've found the right combinations of foods to go along with a prescribed daily Aspirin.  Punch line here is that you are not totally obstructed like I was and there are many maladies that can cause symptoms similar to yours.

    Trust in @slimjm, your doc and your own judgment.  Don't undertake any drugs, enemas, purgatives, cleanses and let yourself heal.  You have a cheering squad right here.    ....rook

    @devajones.. is this what you refer to as being snarky and an asshole?

    "@devajones.. You've never become constipated after a few hours progasm use?? Really??? Wow.."

    If so.. I think you should go and take a cold shower dude!

    By Wow.. I mean that I almost ALWAYS get constipated after a few hours of progasm use.. my BM`s take A LOT longer to reach their destination.

    Diva or dramaqueen? are you gonna be both? :)

    PS. NOW - I`m being snarky with you.. see the difference?

    Absolutely.. Pommie contributes as good as anyone here! 
    Have I behaved badly in regards to @Pommie? If so, I don`t remember.

    With that said, I`d like to extend a big THANK YOU to @slimjim that helped calm me down from my cancerous thoughts! I`m thankful we have people like him among us.

    Now.. a small update.. I started feeling better with a couple of semi-good BM yesterday. Jagged edges and ringfinger thickness. Far from perfect. Today though all is fine. No pain, no slime, no blood with or without slime.

    All in all, I feel good. Gonna lay off anerosing for eight more days.

    As to what it was that caused it, I have NO idea. But most likely it was/is some kind of innflamation or virus. What I can say is that it is the most intense pain I have ever felt. 

    The next worst being three weeks I walked around with a broken bone in my foot. I went to the doctors, and they concluded that my foot was sprained. Their reason for concluding this was my pain treshold and the fact that I walked in there. So the doc prescribed that I start walking on it for the sprain to heal faster. This was an emergency care doctor.. After two weeks of walking on and it not getting better they did an X-ray and found that one of the bones was broken clean off. So next was 5 weeks with a cast and crutches.

    So, now I have a completely different respect for people experiencing abdominal pain. Feeling like I was on the nip of fainting says enough. I`ve always been told I have a big pain treshold. So, whatever it was I had, I wish it upon none other.

    Thanks for all the responses guys. Hope this thread will serve informative.
    And I don`t understand what all the bickering is about :)

    Peace, aneros brothers! Live long, prosper and evolve (think Spock with an aneros device) :)

    Thank you for the encouraging story and your support @rook.. I can relate to the pain you were in when it first hit you. I hope it was not a first round of IBS, but it is infact very likely. I`ll monitor the progress and how my diet might contribute.

    In case dr slim didn't say, the list of differential diagnoses can be long.  You mentioned diet, which prompts me to tell you that I get similar symptoms from soy in any form -- soy oil, soy flour, even soy genes in genetically modified corn.  If it happens again, in addition to seeing a doc and getting tests, it will be important to also see specialists in nutrition and environmental medicine.  Also, read Sherry Rogers' books, regardless of the specific diagnosis you ultimately are given, especially if you are prescribed pharmaceuticals.

    I'm never far from the forum :)

    I'm all good. Still have some weird sensations. It's a bit like if I'm always squeezing my prostate with the muscles I use while enjoying A-less. Feels a bit like lower back pain sometimes. Thought I might have damaged my spinchter. But it's getting better.

    Other than that, my BMs are back to normal. No blood since I posted there was. Maybe slightly constipated one day, but I had an all nighter with the progasm after about two weeks. And was constipated for 1 1/2 days afterwards. I woke up to miniOs about 10 times that night. After I fell asleep I just didn't want to take it out. Completely different from the night tremors I got while sleeping with the aneros 7 months ago..

    So, status: operational! Good to go and back for more.

    On a sidenote, i believe a couple of weeks off the aneros wagon works wonders sometimes.

    Thank you for the concern :)
