JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Can you please tell what you mean by digital?

Um, slightly embarrassing but it was a finger up my bum to check

Have you used anything to relieve the pain?

Is passing stool painful as well?

Slightly I have bad haemorrhoids & have a discharge 95% of the time

Thanks for the details

You should take Ibuprofen tablet and apply Anusol cream over the anal opening

Hopefully that will help in relieving the pain you have

Please do let me know if you have any other question

What about groin pain. I’ve been told not to take pain killers & have been using anusol.

Why you have been advised against pain killers?

I’ve had bloods taken have more on Thursday. Just wondering if anything else could have popped out
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I could have trouble with blood clots

These does not seems like symptoms of a blood clot

It seems more like a pain from some local problem like inflammation or infection in the genital area

You can take Paracetamol as it is relatively safe

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Do you have any other question?

Just wondering if I something might of popped out when I had a anal search

No it is unlikely

It is a quite routine procedure and should not cause any significant damage
