I am presumably suffering from GERD or some Esophagous problem which leads to chest pain and funny symptoms,
 
I have noticed that in the last 3 months I have had Fissures in anus without any particular reason, no constipation, no diet change, no bowel change - the fissues just come on their own and cause painful stool for obvious reasons, since my bowel movement is good and stool is usually soft I dont suffer much but still it is a painful experience to visit the loo.
 
Has anyone suffered from something like this? Can this be releted to GERD / Hyperacidity?
 
please advise

You have to go see a rectal surgeon for fissures. A fissure has to be diagnosed and treated. Someone I know had one from being constipated for a long time and is on her way to healing (may not need surgery) since her doctor put her on an ointment (that has to be inserted a few times a day) with nitroglycerine mixed in. Apparently they have alot of success with this. It's mixed by only certain drug stores though, not many do it since the nitroglycerine is used for heart patients, It also isn't covered by insurance.

Make sure you go see a rectal surgeon, the person I know waited too long and suffered longer because of it.

Hi there.  I am nosing around over here because I suspect that I have GERD....seeing my GI tomorrow.  I have never experienced fissures myself, but they are very common with Crohn's Disease....not implying that you have that, just suggesting that maybe you visit the CD forum and ask some folks over there.  There are some who could be considered experts on the issue I'm sure.  You should certainly call your doctor and tell them about your symptoms.  Maybe they can prescribe something for you, or refer you to someone who can.  I don't know if fissures can be related to your condition, as I am just learning myself :)

By the way, what are your "funny symptoms" if you don't mind me asking?  Just curious.

I had a fissure that would just not heal for years. I have IBS and it would get really bad when I was in a D phase (usually around my period). It took surgery to make it better, but maybe they have better medications now. My surgery was back in '93 (I think...) They removed a large hemmy and the fissure.

I think my IBS was more of an irritant to the fissure than GERD. I wasn't officially Dx'd with that until about '03.
