A big thank you to this website, my doctor gave me no information about anal fissure and no prescription cream either back in April. After reading a lot of your posts, I went back to get a 6% nifedipine cream because I was not healing even with the sitz bath, eating fruits, vegetables, drinking water and stool softeners. When I went back in May, it was a different GP so he had to go stick his finger there to check and he created 2 more fissures so now I had 3, bleeding, pain etc....
I was bleeding since April 5th, on the 5th is really tore and there was so much blood and the pain was unbearable. I would skip days of bm because I was terrified, I had pain, anxiety, panic attacks, cramps and gases (because i was not pooping enough).
So last week I ate a fresh made big croissant from the bakery (I am still in pain and bleeding), not even 1 hour later the farthing started for 10 hours straight every 5 minutes, cramps and of course farthing and fissures don't go together. I realized that there is something in the croissant that made me feel horrible and wondered if it was not the gluten. So the next day I ate nothing with gluten and at that moment, the anal fissure pain decreases so much, the blood during and after BM stopped completely. It has been one week of gluten food and no more blood, no even a drop, BM takes 1 minute (yes it still burns during) but at least I am not in pain for 5 hours straight. So I still put the cream 2x a day, sitz baths 2 x a day, juices/water, stool softeners but at least I am getting somewhere. Panic attacks and anxiety have stopped. I thought I would share what is working for me. I am baking all kinds of cookies, brownies and cakes gluten free and have no reaction what so ever and DELICIOUS !!! Eating wild rice, gluten free pasta and bread. No meat. Gluten free croissant. Fruit smoothies, fruit, vegetables raw and steamed. Stopped the mayonnaise (too much gas). No reaction to butter.
Thank you for this website. Best of luck to all and i understand what you are going through.
