My son is 8 and has developed a problem that I think is linked to him having a bowel movement. It started in November 2011 when he couldn't urinate and was crying in extreme pain. His penis was purple and he said he felt like he was being stabbed by knives. I immediately thought kidney stones. I took him right into the doctor where they took a urine sample and said there was no signs of infections or kidney stones. I have been to numerous specialist who have ultimately decided, for lack of no other specific evidence, that it is likely he isn't have complete bowel movements and that it is putting pressure on his penis area. My son has normal bowel movements from 1-3 times a day. He drinks ample water and eats raw fruits daily with cooked veggies daily also. The problem comes and goes w/o rhyme or reason. After a week of very loose bowels this week due to a flu bug at our house, I knew he certainly would be cleaned out. But suddenly the pain started back up this week. So I don't think the pain is caused from too full bowels. I never did. A hot wash cloth on that area seems to alleviate the pain some. His bowel movements are not normally painful and they are normal in size and shape. Any ideas??? I am truly at a loss.
