Hi all,

It started as little pricking pain and lots of burning kind pain in my anus daily with my bowel movements. No blood. After 5 days the pain is almost always there constantly. Sever pain during and after bowel movements. Then lots and lots of pressure in rectum started which it difficult to sit walk even sleeping because all that area very sore and high pressure. I had pain near my vagina and one of the buttocks too. I went to GI she checked me and said that it is anal fissure and gave me ointment to use it for 4 times a day. I have crampy abdominal pain too.

my questions are...

Can anal fissure cause abdominal pain?

Can it be a fissure without blood?

Can fissure cause pain in buttocks?

    Hi, you poor thing, pain for me was like being knifed up there after bowel movement which went on for sometimes hours. I've had the op to correct it but even now I still feel it open. I have found it really helps if u can to give up dark meat as much as poss, drink loads of water, use calmoseptine cream, really soothing, hold a tissue on area after to help ease pain. It can be a fissure with no blood, I feel mine open sometimes! , if we have been travelling and I've had a bad diet, it bleeds, abdominal pain but go back to doctor again. Stool softener and fibogel, movicol all help me make it soft. I was screaming sometimes and panting, sounds ridiculous but it was that bad. I suffered 9 years and begged my surgeon to do the op X I had three fissures and I begged them to op as my qualiy if life was terrible. I have used coconut oil there as well as it can help heal if u can bear to use it xxxx Claire U.K.

      Hi crafty, you need to pass them and everyday if u can, the longer u leave it, the harder they get and more pain, a viscous circle, drink as much water as you can, a pint a go, I personally would cut out dark meat and eat as much salad and veg as you can. Cut back dairy too, good luck, you can heal it yourself but after a certain amount of time, my own experience is it just doesn't bloody heal. I still after the op get sore at times x

      I have heard many people and my doctor talk about glutamine to help strengthen the intestinal wall and heal along with natural anti inflammatory supplements like quercitin to help he's the lining as well and stop the fissures from happening and reoccurring.

      I plan to try this and I feel everyone's your pain as I would fall off the toilet and pant and cry and grunt it is brutal!!

      I know the feeling for sure!! Too much!!

      The glutamine is the most important I have heard!! It rebuilds the lining of the intestines and strengthens it this preventing fissures and also permeable bowel etc....

      Let me know how it goes for you

    Hello and welcome, you are basically describing exactly what I'm going through !every symptom on the dot. There's a lot of people here who have help me to give me support and experiences in dealing with this issue . Well, I just recently went to doc , where they too said it's an anal fissure . On top of that with the cramping can be ibs . (Irritable bowel syndrome ) unfortunately there's so many illness that are associated with this condition , that's it's sometimes difficult to know what the underlying issue can be . It can become very stressful . But fortunately for you ,,there's a lot of people here that can guide you from their own experiences

    Hello,

    Yes you can have a fissure without blood. I have not heard of people having abdominal pain. I had such bad pain in the rectum it was hard to stand or sit and move my legs while laying down. No pain in buttock area. Maybe you should go to your primary for addition tests just to rule anything else out along with the fissure. Just to be sure. Did you go to a colorectal specialist?

    How are you feeling today?  I just saw your post.  I know how you feel.  I do have blood from time to time with mine.  I am improving though.  The first few days I felt like I was walking around with something in my butt.  The pain was like glass cutting.  I did find that sitting in a sitz bath really helped me a lot.  I make the water very warm...not hot just really warm.  Try it
