Hi there!
Just wanted to say that when I have my period, the whole area gets a bit swollen and sore. I just take extra good care of myself during that time. But you are not crazy....there is definitely a connection between fissure pain/uncomfortableness and periods. I had a deep fissure, had botox and then a simple fistula surgery which is why it took me so long to heal. Things are not the exact same in that area since but I am much better and consider myself healed. It's just a very sensitive and high traffic area. I posted all over this site if you want to know more or feel free to pm me.
Have you thought of trying botox of ointment doesn't work? Botox worked for me and it less invasive than surgery. Might be worth a shot. Good luck to you and hang in there! I also have a little one and who the heck has time for this stuff?!

Paul, I split your post from a very old one that you were 'attached' to so that it will stand more chance of being seen!

Hi Paul - I've had the golf-ball feeling as well... mine turned out to be a fistula that was swollen and protruding... It seems that I have problems fully emptying my bowels as well... I'd say check with your doc to see if there is maybe something more than just the fissure?

My internal hemmies started off feeling like that and then eventually got to grade 3, which meant that they came out and had to be returned after each bowel movement. When outside, they were actually about the size of a golf ball, so that made perfect sense (half a golf ball on each side, which when sitting in your hole would be shoved together as one).

Hi Paul

Firstly welcome, secondly we all know your pain on here and we will help as much as we can! I myself am a 25 year old male and know how much it can affect life, I don't remember the last time I saw my friends!! if you ever need anything or a chat let me know. My biggest words of wisdom are take a bath every evening, take a sitz bath after every bowel movement. Don't do weights or strain at ALL. and finally, get checked out - it's not all fun and games having a doctor with their finger up your bum but it's best to get things sorted sooner than later as things may only get worse.

Suffering since June 2013 :(

Methods tried:
Sitz Baths
GTN cream - awful migraines!
Manuka Honey / Coconut oil / Aloe
Vitamin E suppositories
Tablets (Fiber, Cod liver oil with vit A+D, Multi vits)my + tag excision X 2
Dilatiazem - so far so good.
