Alright so here's my story: This all started when I was 13-14 years old. I started seeing anal bleeding pretty intesively and I went to a specialist who said it was a fistula and gave me a light diagnosis of Crohns Disease awaiting the colonoscopy. I got the colonoscopy and the doctor reversed his diagnosis saying that it was only polyps. Maybe a year or two later I am getting anal pain and pressure, it hurts to sit down. I go back and he does another colonoscopy that comes back negative again. He says it's just hemmorhoids and gives me suppositories. The issue got a lot better, but to be honest it never really completely went away. When I was a kid I was too afraid to go back to the doctor because I didn't want to get bad news, now I'm 27 almost 30 so I'm starting to look back on this and thinking maybe I should do a follow-up. I have no anal pain at all anymore, but for the past ten years I have noticed that during a bowel movement, my anus swells. Further evidence can be seen by looking at my stool. It starts out normal size then starts to shrink. Over the years I have come to accept this as chronic hemmorhoids of some sort, but I rarely think about it since there aren't really any negative side effects (no anal pain). The only issue I have is that I get an anal fissure probably once every 1 to 2 years from a big bowel movement or hard stool. It feels like it's always in the same spot too, probably in scar tissue. Anyways, I'm thinking about seeing specialist for a checkup now that I'm almost 30. What are your thoughts? Maybe a TMS symptom?
