Question: perineum pain


 blossom - Sun Aug 14, 2005 4:37 pm

:oops: Didnt know where to post this????
I have had diarrhea on and off for over 3 yrs now, last 8 months have been totally crippled by my perineum? I get a strange feeling in my left buttock, then my perineum swells so big it feels like it ripping open, i bleed, i swell so big it blocks my vagina and bum, but the more i swell the more it makes me want to poo, so cant stop. When i do pooh i cry as it often feels like im passing acid. I stand to wee as my rectum/perineum is constantly sore and raw. I sometimes walk with a limp as one side of my rectum is soooo painful, i often end up i cannot walk at all and have to go to bed. I live on anti inflammatories, constantly smeared in anastetic cream, always on anti biotics. All tests were normal, endoscope etc. only showed i had an abnormal thickening of my perineum. Please help as i cannot live like this anymore, pain 24 hrs a day 7 days a week for 8 months. can go to the loo, i now have to wait for days for my body to naturally push when on the loo, if i give the tiniest push it makes me scream?? it feels all raw and ripping, What can this be.
