Bum Pain

Posted , 4 users are following.

My bum (actual arsehole & buttocksm cheeks area) are always hurting. I've had the pain for years, but this year is is starting to get unbareable. I cannot sit in one position for more than 30 minutes without feeling extreme discomfort. The pain is a sort of burning pain, it radiates from my Anus to surrounding areas such as my right buttocks & right thigh and the inside of my right bum cheek. My Left buttock & thigh seem to be uneffected.

The only way to releif this is to stand up, walk about and sit down, but after a couple of minutes, the pain will creep it's way back up. The pain is a a hot, stingy, burning sensation, in the anus, thigh, and buttocks. I also have a pain in my penis head as well. All of these symptoms have gradually gotten worse over years.

NO medication I take has helped in the slightest, I have tried:





Amitriptyline (30 day course @10mg once a day)

  • I've also tried medicines that combine many of the drugs above together.

They make no difference at all. The only time I do not feel this pain is when I'm in bed, as soon as I get out of bed and dressed, I can feel the soreness/hotness, and then when I sit down my life gets a whole lot worse. I have tried using all sorts of different underwear and even padding but nothing makes a different.

The feeling is also very uncomforable, it makes me feel dirty, even though my bum is very VERY clean! It's hard to be around people with this feeling, it is sooo horrible and is starting to really effect me. I'm only 19..

Please help, this is a massive pain in the arse, quite literally.

    This sounds like a classic chronic anal fissure. You haven't mentioned if you have seen a proctologist yet and /or a doctor. The by product symptoms probably range but I would go see a GP about the penis pain. You may need to get x-rays or see a specialist.

    Unfortunately not much helps with pain, you can try stuff like coconut oil chunks which help a little with the pain but only for short periods.

    As I tell people here you need to learn to manage the pain before trying to cure it. Most including myself are so focused on curing it and making it go away, unfortunately it takes a long tome to heal if it is chronic. Acute fissues heal in 1-2 weeks, chronic can take years. We have all been there so we know what you going thru, I would say it is unusual at your age but depends on your life style.

    My best tip is make sure you drink lots of liquids. Liquids make your stool soft and help you pass easier. It takes about 2 months for your body to get used to a lot of liquids. start drinking you favourite drink / juice with every meal. try get 8 glasses of liquid in your body each day.

    Avoid stool softners they a waste of time and money and are worse for you and don't work.

    Also click on my name i have written a blog about my experiences and some recommendations.

      Hi West coast

      Thanks for your reply. I am not sure it's a fissure, I have other symptoms that I haven't mentioned (Testicle Tingling, Wet sensation in penis & testicle ache) I have seen a doc and have been referred to Pain Management who can hopefully help out with the pain. I am only after a something for the pain. I have a feeling it might be something to do with my Prostate but I'll have to wait and see what happens...

      I will have a read through your blog.

    I already had my anus checked by the doctor he couldn't see anything wrong, I've been referred to pain management, so hopefully they can do something

    Sounds like you need a second opinion. When you have a BM are you in a lot of pain ? Pain management will only mask the issue and not identify the root cause.

    I still think you may need x-rays, something is wrong obviously, and the doc isn't finding it, so maybe go get a 2nd opinion from a different doc or at least go get some tests done if the doc doesn't know what is wrong, ask the doc to do some additional tests.

      If BM means Bowel movements, no I don't have any increased pain it stays the same the whole way through the day, when I am having a poo I do not experience any pain in doing so. I believe pain management can carry out further tests if they need too, and refer me to other professionals if they need to.

      ok good luck, yes BM is Bowel Movement .. you would know if you had a fissure because you would not want to have a BM or dread it, sounds like something else.
