Question
Hi I have been having abdominal pain for a couple weeks now the doctors I saw said it was a muscular strain. The symptoms continued so I went to the ER to get some test run the cat scaned my stomach area ultra sounded my testicles and had a blood and urine tests and everything came back negative. I was happy with the result but now the abdominal pain is not as severe but my butt itches sometimes and also sometimes has some pain mostly when sitting and now I noticed blodd everytime I wipe but not in my actual poop that I can see. Please help I freak out a lot and need some help because I think it could be herpes but I never had anal sex I am a straight male.

Brief Answer: Could be haemorrhoids or anal fissure. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX I have studied your case. As per your history and symptoms it looks like you are suffering from haemorrhoids or anal fissure. You may need to investigate further, like colonoscopy and ultrasound pelvis. I will advise to consult general surgeon for clinical examination. Stool softener may help in reducing bleeding. Local anaesthetic gel can help if anus area is painful. Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries. Wishing you good health.
