Anal Fissure (cont.)

Anal Fissure Symptoms

Severe pain during a bowel movement followed by continuing pain is the classic symptom of an anal fissure. There may be a few drops of bright red blood in the toilet bowel or when wiping but significant bleeding does not occur.

The pain is significant enough to cause the anal sphincter muscles to go into spasm making the next bowel movement or sitting even more painful.
