skin tags

Postby hurtinend » 10 May 2019, 17:36

Can skin tags cause pain? I have a large skin tag. Gastro doc said no but I’m not buying it.

My pain is through the roof

I've had a skin tag that caused pain, but not through the roof. It was extremely tender and hurt quite a bit. Probably an 8 out of 10 if touched, and a 5 afterward, until it calmed down again.

My pain starts about 2 hrs after bm, and increases to a 10 out of 10. It lasts most of the day. My pain has significantly increased since a colonoscopy I had 2 months ago. Feels like a high pitched fireball/muscle spasm.

Colonoscopy showed nothing other than a large skin tag (likely from old fissure I had years ago).

And you don't have internal hemorrhoids? Those sound like the symptoms I had, with thrombosed internal hems.

apparently not, I’ve been told my pain is “a mystery”

I wish I could look up there myself

Were you told that you didn't have hemmies, or just that your pain was a mystery? The reason I ask, is because many medical professionals, believe that internal hems can't cause pain, so may have just ASSumed that they didn't even need to mention their presence. I think that internal hems that are thrombosed are rare.

Hmmm. I don't know what else to suggest.

Don't give up. I have another health condition, and it is a "mystery" too. I will NOT give up and keep researching and seeing doctor after doctor.
