Anal Sensation (Please Help)

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have a feeling of sweatiness/wetness/leakiness in my anus between cheeks but it is dry to the touch? I have to put toilet paper up inside of it all day to lessen the sensation but I still feel it. Went to urgent care twice and ER three times. Have had diarrhea and constipation before it started and after.

Urgent care suspected possible paresthesia from herniated disc but CT scans at ER showed no signs. Have taken antibiotics/anti-nausea etc. It’s been 3 weeks. It is constant and really upsetting. Very hard to describe as well as it feels nerve-related and tingly but isn't numb. and feels wet but is dry.

    I had a similar experience after a colonoscopy. It felt like the stretchy part

    (the sphincter I guess) was pooching out of the opening every time after a b m which i had watery diarreah after my gallbladder surgery was multiple times a day and I found out it was common after effect of that surgery. Finally I had an anoscopy and they found I had developed hemmoroids and that they were internal so not evident on a physical exam. The surgeon cauterized the worst ones and that solved it.

    I had started using FDS which is a feminine deodorant spray to stop the wetness which to me felt like extreme sweating but I suppose I had gotten to feel uncomfortable and the surgery helped a lot. It takes an internal exam under a microscope to look in the anal canal to see what is going on. And yes, I have a nerve damaged ( L-5) and also had injured my coccyx. I saw a uro gynecologist and they specialize in the pelvic organ systems. A regular urologist just said it was age related and suggested I ignore it. Later research on my own, since I was not comfortable being told that. So I advise you to consult a specialist in anal surgery or at the least a gynecologist because they are the first line of investigating the genital area and that includes the anal area. Just let them know exactly what is bothering you the most and they will be more likely to discover what the problem is.

    Just remember you have the right to find out the answers and keep on until they figure it out. Good luck to you. Also don't give up as I did at first and just stopped going anywhere and finally got medicine to alleviate the constant diarreah and the nagging feeling that I was losing the control of my urinary system ( overactive bladder) & constantly wearing a sanitary napkin to be sure I did not have any accidental leaking.
