Looking for pain killer that isn't...

Postby William2 » 12 Mar 2017, 18:57

I'm looking for pain killer that isn't:

(1) lidocaine - it really makes me feel drugged (sleepy, out of it, slurred words)
(2) dibucaine (as in nupercainal) - see (1)
(3) ibuprofen (advil) - supposedly impairs healing
(4) acetaminophen (tylenol) - bad for liver, makes me tired

I'm taking nifedipine which helps reduce the pain, but isn't a pain killer. Are there any other good topical or oral pain medicines that could take the edge off?
8/09 - 12/10: fissure, cured by LIS/fissurectomy
1/17 - present: fissure/hemms, healed but pain remained, 3 CRSs (nifedipine, infrared coag) were no help, cold dilating >= 1" helped but still have pain when sitting

I take gabapentin it's the only thing that has touched the pain without basically making me unconscious

Pregabalin (Lyrica) has been quite effective for me.
2014 Anal fissure
2015 CAT scan, EUA, sigmoidoscopy, 2 MRI scans - 4 hospital stays
2016 Pain severe then moderate to low
2017 Moderate pain
2018 Physiotherapy, pain management
2019-20 Just living with it
2021 Better, but AF is still a recurrent problem

Topically you could try something cooling, like with menthol. Maybe calmoseptine?
