To cut a long story short, about a year ago I was constipated for a fair while (let it drag on without really taking much notice). I didn't have any pain or discomfort back then.
Fast forward to now and for the last maybe 6(?) months I have had this anal discomfort. Which has been occurring daily really for this time, but sometimes worse than others. It's weird, I have no pain when passing stools (except maybe once or twice I had a real burning sensation that stung heaps), my diet is good and I had been taking a few softeners. The last 2 days had been really good, soft stools and no pain at all during day/night.
However last night I had the worst night of my life. Went to bed around 11pm feeling fine, woke up at about 12:30am with some serious discomfort (not necessarily sharp pain, but just couldn't sit still). Then I went to pee and since I hadn't had water since earlier that night my urine was yellow and it burnt. This then somehow set off the most agonising burning pains in my anus I have ever felt, I tried applying ice packs, nothing really helped but time as it passed, I couldn't even lay down, only stand or kneel.
I was awake with this from 12:30 until 7:30 this morning until it finally stopped and I could sleep. I have seen my doctor about the pain a month or so ago and he booked me in for a colonoscopy, however it's a 6-9 month wait so still a few months until that happens.
Has anyone experienced anything like this? No pain when passing stool then randomly been woken up in the middle of the night with pain?? Logic would say it's a bad tear (fissure) from back when I was constipated and it still hasn't healed. But it just doesn't make sense, how does peeing set off this burning pain sensation at night time..
Sorry for the long post, got the day off and needed to get it off my chest.
