Hard Butt Cheeks

Postby Dust 2 Dust » 12 Jul 2022, 11:40

Anyone else experience this? It's feels like sitting on cement even though you're using a soft cushion. Any tips to help?

I also want to add that it sometimes only happens with one cheek. For instance the left cheek is hard but the right feels fine.

I felt like I was sitting on a golf ball at all times but the sensation was near my tailbone right in the middle. I believe it was a muscle spasm (levator ani?) that went away immediately when I quit my stressful job.

My tip is the same thing my original CRS said: "BREAK THE CYCLE." Neither of us knew what was causing my issue. For me it was my job. Is there anything really stressing you out every day?

Hi Rich,

Thanks for your reply.I would say more anxiety than stress.. I'm a worrisome person by nature. I thought I was going to lose my job, but they've been really understanding. I'm on FMLA and I've learned to work with the pain. I'm in an office sitting all day but I've got a cushion and yoga mat I can lay on. My boss told me not to worry and to take as much time off as I needed. I worked there for 16 years so I've paid my dues.

When I first got the fissure I had a sensation like a golf ball rolling around in my ass. It's still there but a lot smaller and only noticeable after bowelc movements.

I called the CS office and he told me it's normal pain from the fissure. I'm having an exam done next week under anesthesia with botox. When I described my symptoms he said he may need to perform another procedure during the inspection buy he didn't say what and I didn't press him further based on his response. Probably doesn't want to jump the gun and get me riled up for something that may or may not be needed. He knows I have horrible anxiety.
