I have had a long history of bleeding from above anus, neuro issues like brain tingle and cognitive movement disorder, lumbar pain and weakness, buttock, groin, leg tingling and weakness. Cold feet. Anemic. My concern is this bleed from previously repaired pilonidal cyst has been chronic for years.

I am positive for esophageal metaplastic changes. Also urinary incontinence mild. Obviously I am concerned about metastatic cancer. No pain in lower spine.

- Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.

Very bad constipation. Had lower stomach pains for days
- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.

From this study (1 year ago):
I suffer from UC for 8 years, the past 2 years I have had many flare ups, so I am almost Steroid dependent, as they are the only thing that works. So to get off Steroids, i have tried Azathiopran (didn't work caused severe side-effects) then 6MP, (also failed due to lowering my WBC and caused me to become Neurtaphinic and i caught C-Diff), so I am now trying Methotrexate, but I got a blood clot on the lung (4 weeks ago). After I came out of hospital for a week, I was given Warfarin tablets (3 weeks ago) and ever since I've taken them, I have not passed ANY stools naturally. I went 8 days with no movement, so ended up using Microlex Enema to release some, which works, but I have been using them every day for the past 13 days as its the only thing that gets me 'going', only only some soft stools slide out (look normal and soft), so am I constipated or do I have a blockage, or are these drugs stopping me from having the "urge" to go. My belly is ever so bloated, tight and aches a little.
I am only 10.5 stone and 36 years old, I have a swollen face too....
I've only taken 3 doeses (one a week) of Methotrexate, so I think it is too early for any side affects of this drug to kick in yet (I began the Warfarin on the Friday and the Methotrexate on the Monday (3 weeks ago)...
Help please?.... as all the consultants and doctors say is "Try enemas and water etc bla bla...." but I am now dependent on the Microlex enema to go...
