Tearing/Burning Feeling

Posted , 6 users are following.


Can anyone help please?

I'm getting some burning around my bottom, it can be quite severe and feels like ripping/tearing burning. It's uncomfortable to sit for long periods and it feels like the skin/muscle in my bottom is being pulled and tensing which I assume is a spasm. There is no pain during a bowel motion apart from the odd scratch but after the burning is awful, almost like acid.

Thank you

    welcome to our world. phone your doctor, tell him/her that and see if he/she can prescribe something. products from the counter wont work, good luck and keep us updated. Do not waste time, it will only get worse

    Does sound like a fissure. Make sure you drink lots of water. Eat plenty of fibre and take stool softeners. Catch the fissure before it gets any worse. Good luck

    main thing is not no strain when pooping....

    Thank you for all of your responses.

    Can I just ask, do you get strange sensations down there like spasms/tightening of the anus when sitting for long periods. I can't really describe it other than a slight contraction of the anus, it feels like it's moving. It's much worse late evening.

      Yeah, I get the spasms and understand it's really strange to describe. And for me it happens at night too. I had a fissure treated 6 months ago and the pain was bad with the spasms, there not as bad now but unfortunately I've got another fissure to contend with. Last few days I've had these spasms. I can't control my reactions as sometimes it is a sharp pain and I jump so work shall be fun tomorrow 😕

    i have the same feeling, its crazy burning feeling all day long sometimes its worse sometimes its light,but its always around, i went through the LIS 2 weeks ago, no pain at all during bowls but i think i still can feel the cut from the lis inside, not during bowls but after, i hope the surgery fixed that burning feeling i had.
