Hi, Just before xmas after a particularly rough session, for the next few days I was really uncomfortable which has never happened. I ended up going to the doctor and he told me I had a fissure (a tear) and to give it a month. It's actually been a month now and the symptoms are much better but I do feel it's still there...I'm going again on friday. Surely someone else here has had this? It mostly got me down as I really do love being screwed! And if I leave it to heal 'naturally' I feel that it will just open up again. The other options sound a bit scary.
