Hello doctor,

Since a few days, I have had heavy head and stiff neck problem. My head really feels heavy at the end of the day. My neck remains very stiff. I have consulted a neurologist and taking Inderal 10, Shine 10, Naproxen, Nexium and Sibelium. Sometimes, my head trembles too much and neck becomes really stiff. I feel as if I faint and the feel subsides only after bowel movements and passing out. Do I have any gastrointestinal problem? My bowel movements have increased from once to thrice a day for almost five days of the week for nearly two months. Am I suffering from colorectal cancer?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Please have a consultation with a surgeon or surgical gastroenterologist to rule out fissure-in-ano.
  • You need to have a colonoscopy as a baseline to rule out colorectal cancer.
  • Even after these if you have symptoms, then we can start drugs to control the bowel motility, but not without colonoscopy.
  • As of now I am unable to correlate the symptoms to gastrointestinal pathology. I will take it forward after seeing the colonoscopy.

Hi doctor,

Can there be a risk of death through colonoscopy?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • It is very safe with experienced hands. Do not worry about it. If you worry about these things after seeing the details on the internet, then life will be very much stressful.
  • Still, if you are worried, then consider virtual colonoscopy, a CT scan reconstruction, which will show the major pathology. Drawback will be that a biopsy cannot be taken if wanted.
