In other cases there is diarrhoea with rumbling in the bowels, but without pain or tenesmus.
The bowels are constipated—at times so much so as to amount to obstruction—or, again, diarrhoea and tenesmus may be present.
In half an hour there was abdominal pain, diarrhœa, and tenesmus, and frequent painful micturition.
Blood mixed with mucus and tenesmus accompany inflammation low down.
A small quantity of this is passed with tenesmus at short intervals.
The tenesmus (cupiditas egerendi) is a more distressing, and certainly more distinctive, sign of dysentery.
If the large intestine is involved, the diarrhoea is accompanied with tenesmus.
tenesmus, a sense of weight and of a body present in the bowel, are experienced.
In diarrhœa there is no fever or tenesmus, or pain before the stools, as in dysentery.
During this slumber, fever, pain and tenesmus disappear, and the patient wakes with a feeling of health.
tenesmus te·nes·mus (tə-něz'məs)
A painful spasm of the anal sphincter accompanied by an urgent desire to evacuate the bowel or bladder and involuntary straining that results in the passing of little or no matter.
