From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tenesmus is the feeling of constantly needing to pass stools (or, in the less common sense, urine), even if the bowels (or bladder) are already empty. It can involve pain, straining, and cramping.
- Rectal tenesmus (when the word "tenesmus" is used by itself, this is usually what is meant)
- Vesical tenesmus
