I am a 33 year old female. I have no history of Crohn's in my family, and i dont smoke.
For the last 2 years i have been having anal fissures and hemorrhoids. M fissures are multiple but they are not all the way around the anus-predominantly between 3 and 9 o"clock anterior (hemorrhoids are located there also). I went to see my general practitioner this week and next week i am seeing GI. The general practitioner said that it is unlikely to be Crohn's because "the story is not right". I do have, although regular, quite hard BM. Also the blood test came back completely normal.
I am just very confused about
anal fissures because everywhere on the internet it says that if they are a result of physical damage, the appear on 12 and 6 o"clock line, and if they are lateral, there are underlying causes such as Crohn's, HIV, herpes etc. I dont have any of the other deseases and early IBD could be the only thing. Should i be worried?
If you have any info on the above matter, I would be very grateful to hear it.
Thank you in advance.
