re is this fissure going to go away by itself? I have just gotten over my fissure(s) nightmare a few weeks ago. I developed 2 chronic fissures late last year, and had all the symptoms you describe tenesmus, bleeding, jabbing pains, etc. Why do people get anal fissures? An anal fissure is a cut or a tear in the thin, delicate lining of your anus. The tear often exposes the muscle around the anus, called the anal sphincter. hello, i have experienced an anal fissure (at least thats what i have been told it is), and i cant seem to get over it. First, id like to start off with describing myself im an 18 year old girl, i eat very healthy (mostly vegetables, fruits, and grain products), i am 50 and weigh about 100 pounds (this is average weight for my height). Most anal fissures heal with home treatment after a few days or weeks. If you have an anal fissure that hasnt healed after 8 to 12 weeks, it is considered a long-term (chronic) fissure. Try and have only 1 motion a day if possible but dont not go if you get the urge to have one. I have suffered the pain of anal fissures for years and years - but the cure is very very simple you just have to do it. An anal fissure can lead to burning, stinging, or sharp pain during bowel movements. The pain can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few hours. In severe cases, the pain can cause a spasm of muscles that surround the rectum, which can cause the pain to intensify. Older adults are also prone to anal fissures due to decreased blood flow in the anorectal area. However, you should see your gp if you have an anal fissure as they can give you advice and medications to help ease your symptoms and allow the fissure to heal more quickly. Most anal fissures will heal with treatment, although they can happen again easily, particularly if you dont follow the self-help advice outlined below. Fissures leave a tag of skin at the anal opening that people often mistake for a hemorrhoid. The fissure wont heal without good blood supply, not unlike any other wound on the body. Unfortunately, the spasm caused by the exposed muscle keeps blood away from the area, making it unlikely to heal. Anal fissures are often curable without surgery, but in rare cases a minor surgery to repair the anal sphincter may be required. People of all ages can develop anal fissures and this common medical issue is not necessarily the result of anything a patient did or did not do.
