Hello. I have a clear, white, watery substance that leaks from my anus daily. Light odor. The other symptoms are a painful/irritable anus with occasional itching. Also, I have a blue-color vein (pile?) lump thingy that comes out of my anus every six months or so but no doctor has ever seen or felt it. This whole thing has been happening for several years and its so frustrating! The worst is the mucus and anal irritation. I have been to the specialist several times and these are the tests I've done and results:
1)Sigmoidoscopy - normal
2)Colonoscopy - normal
3) Stool test for parasites - normal (I travel internationally often)
4) Celiac test (2 types) - normal
5) Blood tests for common vitamins levels/electrolites - normal
6) Hermerroid check - normal.
7) Liver and pancreas levels?? not sure, forgot
After all these tests, the doctors (all 3 of them) suggest I have IBS. Great, now what? I don't care what I have to do but I don't even know what I need to do! Also, I was prescribed Levsin and that worked for the most part but I became constipated and, well, I can't take it forever. I take Prep H about 4X a day too and it mildly helps. I don't have any health insurance b/c I do volunteer work so any new test will be right out of my pocket! Before I spend a lot more money, what do you recommend? Thank you!
