Can anyone help me work out what's wrong with my bum? I don't know if I have threadworms or or something else.
A few times recently, in the evenings I've felt a really weird wriggling feeling in my bum, a bit itchy but not desperately so, but definitely really weird and wriggly. I spoke to my GP about it and he recommended the sellotape test. I tried it a couple of nights ago, but it was inconclusive - I just wasn't sure if I could see little white threads or if I was imagining it. Yesterday I bought some sachets of Pripsen, but haven't taken them yet and I didn't get any wrigglines last night.
I've had this, and never found any evidence...I think mine was probably piles, and (TMI alert) in the evening, everything sort of relaxes with weird twitchy wriggly feelings resulting.
That said, I took Ovex when I had it - just in case, and doesn't do any harm - which basically made no difference. If you do have TW, and take Pripsen or Ovex, you may well see the evidence over the next day or two!
