Severe bladder cramping/bowel pain?

About 2 months ago, noticed I was having a hard time voiding my bladder and it was getting crampy. At the same time, my rectum hurts like heck. Everytime I have bowel movement, vagina is also on fire? Have had several tests for infections, etc and nothing. Had a CT scan of my abdomen and it showed had thickening of intestine, colitis, rectal inflammation,and kidney stone forming. Gyno thinks I also may have a fisture because my rectum/vagina feel like they are attached and I pass gas via my vagina..just had a colonoscopy, which revealed nothing? also had a pelvic ultrasound...nothing.. now what? Im guessing maybe my problem on outside of my intestines and might be some endo/scar tissue etc. My bladder is giving me extreme cramps all the time, even after I void. I also have extreme leg/calf pain. I know my estrogen is very low so Im wondering if this has something to do with it? Im so upset and confused..help..need advice..any other tests I can get?
Also, problem seems to be more severe right after I use my bio-estrogen cream? I also tried inserting a vaginal applicator in and when I do, I put against my rectum?

I had my TAH over 6 years ago..

Re: Severe bladder cramping/bowel pain?

In regards to the bladder pain have you been checked to see if you have interstitial cystitis?

Have you had your vitamins and electrolytes check recently? I know that low potassium and low magnesium can cause leg and muscle pain. As well as a few other issues.

I am at a loss for the recto-vaginal fistula issues. It does sound like you have one with the fact you pass air through your vagina. Have you tried googling other test that might be able to find it? I know that they can be very thin (strand of hair thin) which makes them hard to locate.

Sending hugs and best wishes your way hope you find relief soon.
