I have squishy never ending poo. Horrific piles (I think two are thrombosed) and restless legs. Lying down helps the pile pressure but causes the restless legs to kick in (even during the day). Sitting up and moving helps rls but not the piles and still the poo keeps coming. I was promised constipation. I feel cheated
I've tried magnesium for the rls, I've got steroid pile cream and have been bathing after ever bm but it's only temporary help.
Anyone got any tips on dealing with piles or restless legs or incessant pooing toothpaste?
I'm in a similar situation, I'm 34 weeks pregnant and now everything seems to if come at once. Piles are horrendous at moment and I've never poo'd so much either. I use a cream from doctor and preparation h wipes to ease the pain. I've bought a rubber ring to sit on too as the pain is unbearable at times. I have found that they are really bad for a week then improve and then worsen again and more seem to appear. And as for restless legs I just have to move or elevate when sitting. May not be able to provide and advice but can sympathize with you. I don't want pregnancy to end but don't enjoy what comes with it and as for the aftermath of labour I'm concerned!!
I had restless leg for a few weeks- hot baths at the end of each day (and sometimes first thing too)..however now the RLS has been replaced at 37 weeks with swollen feet/cankles and a rash up to my calf on both legs which has baffled both my MW and GP. In short Ive never felt so attractive!!
Can I ask you what magnesium shop you are using?? If it's magnesium oxide then dump it. It will give you the shits. Better with any chelated magnesium ( citrate, or any others that end with 'ate') Solgar or Lamberts do good ones. Try the better you bedtime magnesium spray , Holland and barretts sell it. Literally spray on at bedtime and get into bed. Really Good! I was admitted to hosp with hg with my ds. I had no vits with me that first night and fuck me the rls was awful!! So glad when dp brought stuff in for me.
