Help my ass stop hurting! - pain health hemorrhoid | Ask MetaFilter
Help my ass stop hurting! November 19, 9: I've just finished a week-and-a-half course of anti-biotics after some dental surgery. One of the side effects, I assume because of the eradication of digestive bacteria, is that the amount of shit I've been putting out has tripled. I used to be a twice-a-day man, now it's three times and the volume is huge. Hole the last several days, I've developed what seems like a throbbing swollen vein in my ass, hole an inch to the left side from the asshole.
Oh, sweet Jesus, it hurts. It hurts when I sit, it hurts less when I stand, but it hurts. But there's no blood, and no external tissue, and all the the info I've seen indicates that internal hemorrhoids shouldn't cause any pain.
The real question is that hurts I'm due to drive several thousand miles in a few days, what can I do about it before then? And no, I don't have any insurance or money, so realize that unless I ass that it's gonna be horrible, permanent harm, I'm going to try to avoid seeing one. Google "low residue diet". The less you have to go for the short term, the better. Take a probiotic or eat lots of organic yogurt or Activia. If you really have an intestinal flora problem, that'll be a must.
One of those inflatable rings, maybe? They sell 'em at drug stores for hemmorhoid sufferers. Hydrocortisone cream to reduce the inflammation; a pharmacist can help you choose. Eat enough fiber and drink enough water so you don't have to strain. There's always Preparation H. There's a good chance you have Clostridium difficile, which is a bacterial diarrhea that often follows antibiotic use.
You pretty much have to see a doctor, as dietary changes are not going to stop the bacterial infection. The anus problem is most likely an external hemorrhoid.
The only thing to do about this is to take sitz baths and use an air donut.

You need to avoid constipation and hard stools, so make sure that you don't cut out too much of your fiber. Also, don't use the over-the-counter hemorrhoid creams, since they can make healing take quite hurts bit longer.
Sorry not to give you better news. I second the doctor, but because the symptoms you describe sound to me to be an anal fissure.

Well, I'm outting myself as the ass-pain sufferer after going to the doctor today.
