:)I'm new to this site, and the readers have been extremely helpful and I immensely appreciate it.
Since I received great opinions already for my other small health issue, I have another one to ask about. Its a bit embarrassing but Im absolutely sure that somebody out there has had this problem before...
A few years ago while working at my steel mill factory job, I began to have anal itching...mostly when I was walking around. Now, I know that everybody gets this once in a while because of improper cleaning and whatnot, but after this anal itching began in my life, its been extremely annoying. A lot of cleaning really didnt help me much. It was getting to a point that when I noticed the itching coming on, that I would frantically seek a hiding spot where I could "violently" scratch myself to relieve the itching. Occasionally, I did have a chance to speak to a few close friends about what it could be, and I was told something about worms! Well, I readily made an appointment with my doctor and thank goodness, the worms thing was ruled out! I was told by a doctor that it could be a reaction from a type of toilet paper but this was never confirmed. A while later, I had a colonoscopy at my request and I was found to have a polyp which was apparently removed by the surgeon. I still have the itching now, and the only real good remedy now is when I use these medicated pads called "Tucks".
A number of years ago, I was diagnosed with a hiatus hernia and I have had bouts of sudden acid reflux where it would feel like a heart attack and "if" I didnt have any antacids with me, it would feel that death was imminent. Does anybody know out there whether Is it possible that there might be some connection between this anal itching, my hiatus hernia, and gerd? :eek:
