So I have not torn my original fissure but have slight soreness at the other side, keeping BM soft with lots of lactulose and magnesium. So far it's just a blip and a reminder to not get complacent. Looks like this is me now for the long term future, keeping on top of things and not miss the stool softeners. I can eat fairly normal but only one meal I can't eat just what I want everyday. I always eat with my fissure in mind, I don't eat what I used to regularly, I have adjusted my diet and the odd bad meal if going out is fine although I tend to chose well and that's not a bad thing really. I just don't order white junk food, hopeful today stats goid and I'm back on the road to recovery ..

Spams all day!!! How can this happen! I had to go to London and the whole journey was uncomfortable, not agony like I've had before but pretty painful. I'm home and just laying down. I'm going to have sitz bath and use my recto cream. I'm gutted to be here again, though. Missed the odd lactulose I have not been bad and I jus wan this gone. I haven had pain while doing a BM but spasm after this mornings one. Im totaly pissed off tbh. I wonder how stress plays a part in fissures? I just had sch a stressful couple of weeks as my son had accident and been going to London hospital a lot, his getting better but I was very stressed and tired, and total drained. My diet was so so but not terrible. Could stress be my trigger for fissures?!!!
I'll rep this in mind, although no idea what I do to stop it if it is...
I actual thought I was healed but obviously not :(

Stress is a well know trigger for fissures as stress releases lots of of hormones including cortisol, cortisol cause smooth muscles ie involuntary muscle to tense....these muscles include the heart and the sphincter. It why stress can cause heart attacks. So yes stress can cause the sphincter to tighten up which will restrict the blood flow to your fissure, which will then cause the sphincter to spasms.
Unfortunately life is stressful and we can’t really avoid it, I tried yoga and meditation but because my resting pressure was so high even a slight increase in cortisol would cause more spasms.

MPB , I did wonder as I have been rushing around, total chaos and so stressed. Thank you for the information, I'm hopeful this will not last as long as the original one but who knows! This is such a set back for me. i actually believed I was healed, let's see what tomorrw brings....

Well my BM are soft, I had sitz bath and an back on my recto ointment, lucky for me it had never given me headaches. Today has been OK once I done this. Hopeful tomorrw is good.
