I have painful, burning bowel movements with excruciating pain in my groin and pelvic region. Could it be Diverticulitis? Do certain foods cause gas, burning, or pain through the buttocks? I drink coffee, could it trigger that excruciating pain?
Hello, Nancy. I'm sorry you are having such discomfort.
This forum is dedicated to concerns and issues related to inflammatory bowel disease (IBS).
I suggest that you see a GI specialist to assess your complaints and their significance.
