    Yes I have, I thought it had to do with my hemorrhoids, although they weren't active at the time of pain. But I've had colonoscopy ...just check up bc of family history and nothing....the pain did go away.

    I hope you feel better soon

    Hi Kim...oh yes to the itchy privates- back and front, too!

    That's part of my symptom merrygoround...comes and goes and drives me batty when it happens because I know I probably shouldn't scratch but I do. Hot sitz bath helps (like after childbirth back in the day).

    It goes along with the general dry itchy skin and creepy crawlies...
