I feel like I've brought this a few times to this forum as I don't have a clear understanding of what pouchitis actually looks like/feels like.

  • I have no change in stool consistency,
  • I don't feel unwell,
  • no fever,
  • no change in cramping.

But there's definitely an increase in frequency as well as pain when the stool is hitting the anus. It's relieved when I empty. There is no pain during the movement (eg fissure). Also, there is discomfort just above the anus at times. Not pain but just noticeably different . (No abscess)

I'm not keen on trying antibiotics if it's not the issue. It's been about a week like this. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
