I just wanted to gather some advice as I’m struggling to accurately describe what is going on to the GP.
I’ve had 9/10 pain in my rectum after opening my bowels infrequently for around 12 years (I’m 29). Initially I would estimate occurrence as every so often, whereas now perhaps once a month. Not exclusive to hard stools and the pain feels higher up in what I can only visualise as the prostate area. Pain comes on fairly suddenly and lasts around 20 minutes then very quickly fades away.
Around a year ago, I began getting the same pain after ejaculation. Not every time, but again, 9/10 pain, lasts 20/30 minutes then fades to nothing. I can only describe the pain as my insides being pulled through my rectum. It may of course be referred pain.
I have had very slight urinary symptoms for as long as I can remember including slight dribbling after urination, but nothing that has impacted my life.
I had a blood test and was prescribed one month of antibiotics for prostatitis. Blood test came back negative and the antibiotics haven’t changed my symptoms. DRE suggested prostate feels fine.
I appreciate the purpose of this forum deals with some serious topics so just to note that I am not concerned but wondered if anyone has experienced any similar symptoms as they don’t quite seem to fit into prostatitis but similarly, I can’t grasp what else may be going on.
Thank you in advance
