I have severe burning sensation at my anal region after I have something acidic. Previously, I had chest pain, dizzyness etc. Now its only this burning and night time sore throat.


Anyone experiencing these symptoms.

Thanks!

I don't think that fits so well with GERD. Have you had investigations at both ends of the digestive track? Reflux can be related to inflammatory bowel conditions. A more simple cause would be thrush but that is usually also itchy. I would seek further medical advice.

Two possibilities come to mind:

As MMM mentioned, one possibility is IBS.  If you're also experiencing loose, foul-smelling stools, and uncomfortable cramping, this is IBS.  The reason this stings the anal region is because the intestinal lining of the small intestine is compromised, and increased peristalsis moves undigested food and enzymes too quickly through the GI tract.  Enzymes that normally would be neutralized or absorbed reach the anus and burn.  Food intolerance is what begins the pathology in the small intestine.
 
The other possibility, is if the stinging is the result of hemorrhoids, perhaps cracking and/or splitting.  There are a couple of reasons for hemorrhoids, but one is candida -- which can also be related to food intolerance.
 
The dizzyness symptom you describe is troubling, but there is a condition known as "gluten-induced neuropathy" and "gluten ataxia"...also symptoms of food intolerance.
 
I suggest a food journal, and perhaps an elimination diet.

Thanks for the replies.

Dizzyness is also associated with reflux. The burning in the anal region is because I had something spicy etc.

I have had my share of investigations done by doctors/specialists etc. I just hope diet modification will fix it. I have had this burning only few times in the past one year.

"Spicy" certainly lends itself to a different diagnosis than "acidic."

Symptoms of dizziness are sometimes reported with those patients that experience reflux, but the reflux itself probably doesn't cause dizziness. If the reflux causes nausea, there may be dizziness because of that. Or, dizziness from some other cause may lead to nausea, and reflux. It's important to follow the trail of symptoms.

Hi bcfromfl,

Can you please elaborate why spicy does not relate directly to acidity?

Thanks

For example, "I just ate chicken wings with my favorite volcano sauce," has different implications and possible symptoms than, "I drank some orange juice, etc."
