Please help.......

Hi there,

I'm here because I've been having severe pain. My doctor checked for hemorrhoids and I was told that I do not hemorrhoids. He said that while I did not have have hemorrhoids, however my anus was indeed swollen. I do not bleed, I do not see blood in my stool. It does not hurt when I have a bowel movement, however I do have pain when I get diarrhea, it feels very irritable and it burns. When the pain does go away, it is replaced with itchiness. My pain is at the very opening, feels dry, as if I had a rash all day. I have never had anal sex, I doubt that I have a fracture/fissure?

I am very frustrated and depressed because I do not know what my problem is and it is very uncomfortable to sit still.

Anyone here has had similar symptoms?I am very confused because of the fact that I do not have hemorrhoids, I do not bleed but yet my anus feels very uncomfortable during/after prolonged sitting.

I need help, maybe some suggestions as to how to communicate with my doctor more effectively? what should I ask? what procedures/tests should I ask for?

I appreciate the help as I am living through some terribly miserable days.

hi, sorry you are going thru this. What type of dr are you seeing? If GP I would ask to see a gastro dr. You probably need a colonoscopy or something of that nature. at least then they can look in w/ a camera and see what it going on. do you find sitting in a hot bath helps? try using baby wipes when you have the diarrhea that will help sooth it.
