Do i need to use an enema to before i go to the doctor for an anoscopy or proctoscopy? Won't that help the doctor see better?
Best to call their: Office and ask the nurse if the doctor prefers you have an enema. If you get there without an enema and the doctor can not see anything, you have just wasted your time and his/hers and will need to reschedule your appointment for another time after taking an enema. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I think I have either anal fissure or internal hemorrhoid, had rectal exam before no result. Still pain and blood in toilet. Should doc do anoscopy?
I had painful anal sex about 4 months ago, have no STIs, have pain passing stool every since. My doctor won't do an anoscopy. What should I do?
See another: First, use OTC medication as if you have a hemorrhoid. What you have is most likely a fissure, which is a tear. You need to be examined by a colorectal surgeon to determine the extent of the damages and how deep the tear is. So go and see different doctor. Meanwhile sit in a warm water in bath tub. That will relieve the pain. And make sure to keep you stool soft. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is 250mg of paromomycin (x3) for 10 days enough to kill amebiosis? Would my doctor know from the anascopy/stool/blood test if it is invasive?
Should i go to the doctor? I think i jammed my finger in gym class today, but i'm not too sure. It's not swollen or bent, it just hurts a lot when i'm writing, typing or texting.
I : I would ice the finger and take Motrin or advil (ibuprofen) to help prevent swelling. Also refrain from using the finger (e.G typing / texting). If the pain does not subside in a day then have the finger examined, and if necessary x-ray'd. Even though it may not be broken, you could have sustained ligament damage. If you find that you have lost the range of motion in the finger you should seek help. ...Read more

38 yr-old w/ hemorrhoid per anoscopy. Chronic low back and right hip pain, stand at work. Consistently flat stool; could this be from muscle tension?
Yes and maybe: Certainly, standing for a long period of time, such as at work, can result from muscle strain and be a factor in chronic low back & hip pain. Stretching/strengthening exercises should help. But "flat stool" needs more investigation in my view; hemorrhoids by themselves should not be sufficient to cause. I would ask doctor for more testing, probably flex sig or colonosocpy, to evaluate. Good luck:) ...Read more
What medicine works best for derealization without anxiety? I have it pretty much nonstop and have seen every type of doctor/every test performed.

Evaluation must rule out medical/psychiatric issues. SSRIs, clomipramine, hypnosis may help. CBT helps to confront distorted thoughts/challenge feelings of unreality. If anxiety then benzodiazepines may help. Best regards for relief. ...Read more
