This answer was rated:

Why do i feel light pressure in rectum and urges to have a bowel movement off and on everyday? Also, my abdomin under my belly button feels light crampy off and on too. There no blood in stools, no pain, no nausea, stools are not hard, but they float. I eat veggies for lunch and dinner and fruit and little meat. Sometimes after a bowel movement it feels like something moves back inside my rectum. What is this?

It feels like pressure in rectum and an urge to have a bowel movement. I have a bowel movement every day. No incontinence.

Dr Brims :

Any blood in your stool?

Customer:

no

Dr Brims :

Okay, any constipation?

Customer:

no

Dr Brims :

This may be due to hemorrhoids

Customer:

So, what you are saying is that hemorroids can cause this. Hemorroids can cause an on and off urge to have a bowel movement?

Dr Brims :

Yes, the pressure they exert on the rectum can cause these urges

Dr Brims :

Are you familiar with the term hemorrhoids?

Customer:

yes.

Dr Brims :

ok

Customer:

I don't pass hard stools, but I do heavy weight lifting such as squats.

Customer:

Could this cause hemorroids?

Customer:

Will hemorroids resolve themselves over time?

Dr Brims :

The squats may cause this, the increased intra-abdominal pressure can cause hemorrhoids

Customer:

So I cant do squats anymore?

Dr Brims :

I would avoid doing them until this subsides

Customer:

How long will it take for this to remedy?

Dr Brims :

I cannot judge that, it may take months, but it differs from person to person

Ok, thanks
