Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Pain at the bottom indicates an acute anal fissure or a crack in the skin/mucous membrane in the anal canal .
You should try your level best to keep your bowel movements as soft as possible by taking more fruits and vegetables and fiber supplements like metamucil or benefiber or ispaghula husk.
Meanwhile for the pain you can take over-the-counter lignocaine gel to numb the area.
the pain travels up to my tail bone is this normal?
Yes that is normal.
Indicates anal fissure.
cut in the anus
Inside the anus.
what would have caused that?
oh right i suppose it was large and hard
Any more questions?
any specific diet for constipitation ? haven't been able to find one on the net
More fruits and vegetables, more fiber in diet, whole grain cereals, brown bread, as much liquids as you can take to keep the stool moist.
Generally speaking those are the main things.
how will the pain last? does it ease after a while?
sitting is quite painful!!!
It will heal up in due course of time, you should apply lignocaine gel as it will numb it.
Hot sitz baths will also help.
Soaking in warm water 10-20 minutes several times a day will help.
does this happen often? i have never been constipitated before - always diarroha !!!!
sitz means hip
Hip bath in which a person sits in water up to the hips
