Hi everyone. I've been experiencing these delightful fissures for the past 2 years. I mentioned it to a doctor 2 years ago who said well it sounds like an anal fissure, but never examined me. I have had it on and off since then. The pain never got that bad although sometimes a lot of blood. But since I overhauled my diet it's been great, I've only had one or two real problems (but again pretty minor every time).
I am going to see doctor about it this week as I want to try knock it on the head for good. I've been reading a lot about them but this has caused me more confusion. See, I'm confused about whether you'd call mine chronic? The tear itself doesn't last more than 5 days/ a week in itself. But it has recurred a number of times over two years. So is that chronic? Because I thought chronic meant that particular instance of pain and blood etc lasted more than a certain amount of time.
Basically, what is difference between recurring and chronic?
