so much pain

Postby dps395 » 21 Feb 2018, 09:27

hi i have a chronic fissure for 7 years now, finally have a colonoscopy scheduled. i have tried at least 4 different ointments to help relieve the pain and nothing works. I have a searing burning like pain and also have a hemerroid . that burning pain is actually driving me crazy , last night i 0ut proctofoam-hc on it which was a script from the doctor and it burned 10x worse than before. I was on the kitchen floor in tears and agony wondering how i can be out out of my misery. I have sitz baths after ever bm which is fine and i know the fissure and roid are healing a bit after one week. But my main concern is the pain, it will not stop , as soon as i start walking around its like a fire ant is biting me . I NEED SOMETHING FOR THE PAIN ASAP, I'm going crazy. anusol plus, prep H, and proctofoam-HC have all made the burning pain 10x worse. I am going to the store to try baby cream , sudocrem i guess, Any other suggestions.?

7 years is a really long time for fissure. you should give LIS some serious thought

If it's a fissure pain that try to get nifedipine, nitro or dilitiazam apply it internally that will help. Fissure pain is more like a spasm it really increases after bowel motion. So may want to use a stool softener to keep them soft. Hope it helps. I don't know much roids so can't help with them much. Watch ur diet eat more soluble fiber stay away from foods that may constipate u.

If you have a fissure the cream for hems may make the fissure worse. I found GTN cream to be the best for spasms. I also found gabapentin to be one of the best painkillers for a spasm.
I hope you get the help you need as spasm pain is the worse pain I have ever experienced

So the pain feels like its coming from the underside of the roid, just on the threshhold of external/ internal . i believe there is a cut there that i think is the fissure itself. that is the point where contact of any type of medication amplifies the burning pain. So what im saying is i dont know exactly where the pain is and if its the roid or the fissure , ive already spent near $100 for store bought stuff and prescription.

You should really get it first checked by Doc to know the exact reason of pain, fissure or roid, at this point thats the best course of action to know what really is causing the pain.

Your pain comes from your fissure and the spasming muscles all around. My doc said hems will not cause that kind and so much pain unless thry are quite large and external. You meed LIS immediately. In a meantime take gabapentin as Mypoorbutt suggested. You can also try laxatives with a very strict diet without grains, nuts, sugar, chocolate, rice, dairy, do your stool is soft which will ease the pain. But it will not be a long term solution. Get the surgery done.

If your burning is coming from spasms...burning probaby means minor spasms...then nothing will stop it apart from sitz baths and creams specific for a fissure. Did your doc see a fissure if so he should be able to prescribe diliatazem or GTN. Lots of gps give the wrong meds for fissures and some in the U.K. will not prescribe GTN unless advised too by a CRS.
Sudocrem will protect the area but you need to apply it before a BM to get the best results and the best it can do is help reduce the amount of residue left behind with will sting the fissure and cause burning and spasms to start.
Also don’t wipe with toilet paper after a BM try to use a shower head or portable bidet to clean the area as wiping can irritate fissures
