My pain started at the end of February and originally was thought to be piles. Now thought to be an anal fissure I have an appointment for the Botox treatment on 15th June. I'm looking forward to the anaesthetic for some pain relief. If I have a bowel movement in the evening I can say with absolute certainty I won't be sleeping that night! The pain is unbelieveable. Currently my pain relief is 2 paracetamol 4 times a day, 2 ibuprofen 4 times a day and 3 tramadol, one in the morning and two at night. All good with no bowel movement but even when soft and/or runny it is just as excrutiatingly painful! I am also using Laxido once a day.
?I also use a CPAP machine as I have sleep apnoea. I have an appointment at the sleep clinic the week before!
I don't have a good relationship with painkillers generally so the sooner I'm off them the happier I shall be. I have a history of depression where I have taken overdoses. I have since been dignosed with Asperger's and so far have been able to control that side of things through an understanding of the condition.
?Am I right in thinking that it genuinely is that painful a condition? I describe it as somenie pushing a Stanley knife blade in and just for good measure passing through the intermittent elecrtric current through it!
Is the Botox reasonably successful and does it make a noticeable difference?
Having a totally sleepless night every 2 to 3 nights isn't exactly handy, especially when job hunting but will be worse when in work!
