Anal fissure - lots of pain, please help

Hi,

I have what I think is a fissure - started after a bout of loose stools but it has now been a week and there is no relief. Worse when sitting and when walking - better hot water. Am also now constipated - urge to go to the bathroom is there but nothing comes out - there is a ton of pressure - feeling of wanting to bear down. The pain is becoming unbearable.

I also have a cough with a lot of green, bitter tasting mucus which is worse in the morning and comes up almost as soon as I wake up. The pain in the rectal/anal area is worse when I cough, so much so I avoid coughing or have to control the cough.

Silicea? Sepia has bearing down but not sure it covers the cough symptoms.

Thanks for any help,
J

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take Sepia 200 for 2 days.

If it doesn't help, please take Nitric Acid 200 for 2 days.

Hey JMalik,

Ars. alb. covers most of symptoms along with Modalities, sepia does cover Modalities but some symptoms. My second choice would be nat. mur. then sepia and lastly sil.

Thank you both. I was in so much agony last night that I woke up at 3am coughing, in pain and it was unbearable. Since there was no reply on this thread at that time, I tried a few doses of Silicea 30C which allowed me to sleep. As of this morning, the pain is much better but the cough seems to have moved deeper into the chest and although I am managing to expectorate, the mucus is getting lodged in my throat and it takes some retching, clearing the throat to get rid of it.

Shall I wait and watch now? Or does the fact that the cough hasn't got better mean that Silicea was not the right remedy to begin with?

I did also look at Ars. Alb but went with Silicea because of the mentals - I didn't feel restless, wasn't thirsty for sips of water or anxious.

Thank you for your help.

If sil.30c helped then you should wait to let it workout, don't repeat but it seems to me partial effect as you stated 'as cough seems to have moved deeper into chest ......etc'. The direction of cure doesn't seems right. A person gets an anal diseases 'when depression is suppressed'. So if you all feeling all over better (the whole, specially mentally) but its too early to judge something. My advice is you should wait and watch. If symptoms get worse any matching remedy can be tried in such acute painful situation as anal fissures are very hard to bear.

Lastly, the mentioned symptoms of ars. aren't enough to hit the simillimum, to prescribe it.
You didn't described your behavior, personality, sensations, locations, modalities so no one can actually prescribe a remedy even in acute state the above mentioned symptoms aren't enough. If ars., sil., sepia, didn't help then you should present you case in a manner that it could be taken by someone.

Hope you understand what i meant.

So, I got through the whole of yesterday with no pain whatsoever but cough's still bad. The pain came back late last night and I took another dose of Sil 30C - it did nothing (am taking water doses btw) so I tried one dose of 200C - no pain this morning whatsoever except for a little pressure and itchiness (which is a new symptom), was able to pass a stool without pain but cough is terrible. I woke up frequently through the night to cough, threw up food that I had eaten - cough feels like it's coming from deep in my chest, sounds brassy, still hawking up green mucus which tastes bitter - also chest/ribs/sides hurt when I cough. Breathing is also somewhat laboured. Feeling on the chilly side, hot drinks feel better. Lots of retching when I need to expectorate to get the mucus out. My nose is congested too and the same greenish stuff comes out when I blow.

Chest feels raw like it has been scratched from all the coughing. Mentally I'm feeling desperate, tired, depressed that I'm not getting better. Not really irritable more despondent.

Does Ars. Alb still fit, Paki1?

Thanks,
J

JMalik,
Stop taking remedies so frequently, it looks like an aggravation. You should first wait and see how much sil. helps in next 5-7 days as it did helped you in anal fissure and its pain. So don't take any more doses of sil. Hope it will help but let it work without taking any further doses. It will take some time to clear up congestion and other issues. Changing remedies suddenly won't help you much instead it will make case more complex. Waiting will clear up the picture.

My advice is just to wait!

Thanks again!

Hi,

My cough is getting worse and worse unfortunately - I'm pretty sure I am bordering on bronchitis/pneumonia because I am wheezing, my chest and ribs hurts when I cough and although the fissure is fine, I am in a lot of pain while coughing - there is still green mucus but the cough is very painful.

Is this still an aggravation to the Silicea? Is there nothing I can do - one homeopath I worked with in the past had the approach of dosing with a lower potency to combat aggravations, anyone have experience with this?

Any other suggestions please?

Thanks

which side of chest hurt during coughing?

Right

what makes cough worse and what makes it better?

Worse lying down, eating sour food, talking. Better when walking around and outside and after drinking water.

which time of day or night its worse?

Night, worse around midnight but also morning as soon as I wake up (expectoration is worse then).

how pain feels like I mean sensations?

Chest feels raw like it's scratched. Ribs feel bruised. When I breathe hurts too.

how is your thirst?

Not too much or too little although I do have a dry mouth.

any other symptoms along with coughing?

apart from the itching/a little pressure remaining from the fissure, nothing else noticeable. Have been under a lot of stress lately because my mother has been unwell. Feel like I am not recovering in part because of that.

does cold things makes cough worse?

Haven't noticed a link just yet with cold. I don't crave cold things though, crave hot drinks and warm food.

Thanks
