I know how you feel I had Botox for my fissure an received a second fissure in the process now the second one flears up from time to time on top of the original one which makes me think maybe it's a sign I need to work more on the inside an not the outside like being redirected to the real problem like you said it's not a quick fix it's something you work on in all areas of your life. No one needs to get me or agree with me that's just my view

I definitely believe that my AF issues are exacerbated, if not caused by, anxiety and chronic stress. There's a vid on YouTube where the poster claims that there's correlation between nocturnal bruxism and AF, and bruxing is another of my afflictions. Sorry, I don't have the YouTube URL, nor do I recall the poster's credentials, but she was from the holistic healing perspective.

That sounds exactly like me. I had major grinding/clamping issues with my jaw just before this set in. Big move, new career, I am somebody who is pretty predisposed to being stressed... looking back I definitely would have made some different choices.

Problem is anyone on this board must have higher anxiety than general population as general population would simply go see a doc and not worry about anything.

I have anxiety and depression as well. Been a tough year with a separation (with kids) and maybe there is a link there. However I didn't see much that was written on the subject and I'd like to read some litterature on that.

Hello all,

The issue of stress, anxiety, the subsequent depression is no longer a rarity. Almost each of us either suffers through it or knows someone close who faces these challenges on a daily basis. :scratch:

As per the latest studies done by the WHO (World Health Organization), more than 322 million people across the globe show depressive tendencies.

While we might think that physical and mental conditions are separate entities, it is not so.

90% of the serotonin, the happy chemical, is created in our intestines, which means if you are stressed or anxious, it will affect your bowel movements. :cry:

This is one of the primary reasons why constipation and anal fissures occur chronically among people who lead stressful lives.

I've been using EmoLax (PEG) for two weeks and I've been more depressed. Could there be a link between such laxative and serotonin been created in the intestines? I've read many people who had success with PEG but I also read that it's bad for children and that up to 4% of the plastic molecules are absorbed (not good). Slightly off-topic, but I really feel depressed since I started PEG.

I totally agree with DocTreats, fissures are definitely linked to high anxiety levels which lead to either constipation or diarrhea. Also, once you get the fissure it becomes a vicious circle - you get more anxiety on how the next BM will be and how the pain will affect your day. And you get more and more isolated from "normal" people, thus depression kicks in, the hormones make the anal sphincter even tighter and on and on and on.
John, I don't believe there is any relationship between PEG and depression honestly, there are many people taking it that do not have AF and not many complain about this. If you are worried about side effects, try Magnesium citrate or buffered Vitamin C.
