About 9 months ago I started having rectal pain. I went to a proctologist a few months ago when the pain was unbearable while sitting down. An MRI was done and then a colonoscopy. Nothing was found but internal hemorrhoids The doctor doesn't think that internal hemorrhoids would cause the pain and thinks it could be muscle spasms but I find that hard to believe. It hurts to the touch. I can't sit for more than 5 minutes at a time. The pain use to be only a few times a week but now it's every day particularly after a bowel movement. Currently the doctor has me using Anucort-HC 25MG suppositories but they are not helping at all and even seem to be making the problem worse. My doctor is willing to rubber band my hemorrhoids but says it won't help the pain. I have to travel soon and will be driving for 5 hours a day for a few weeks and I'm dreading it. Is there something that would work for the pain? Any ideas on how I should proceed with my doctor? What else can I do to help resolve this issue?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
