I have a fissure that's more external than internal and break it
open fairly often when I wipe. I don't really feel it at all unless I'm flaring or have multiple bms. It's quite small....
So, I still suggest takin a look....pb4, now we wouldn't want Damo to lose out on that experience..lol (as long as he doesn't do a Madonna)!
External hemorrhoids, on the other hand, don't bleed but can burn/ache/itch like hell.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
