So, this is probably gonna get pretty personal, but I'm looking for opinions. I was just recently diagnosed at my local ER with a mild Diverticulitis and sent home on antibiotics. A few days after I woke up with a swollen anus/anal region and everything felt very tight. Like any other swollen area. I used a heating pad and tried to relax and by the next morning the swelling had gone down completely. Only now, I have an odd sensation in the area. Only way I can describe it is like having a 24/7 wedgie or like something small stuck inside my anus. So, I inspected the area and discovered a lump on my perineum(skin between anus and vaginal opening) and this lump feels sort of squishy, will move with my finger, like a bubble...and it itches something HORRIBLE. I've also noticed a small little squishy lump right at the opening of my anus and I'm thinking they're connected. But I'm not really positive. Both areas itch really bad. I've had absolutely no pain. It doesn't hurt. Aside from mild burning with bowel movements. And here's the super weird part...sometimes it feels like it's moving. Even though I know it isn't. Weird.
Now I have HPV, I've had warts, but never in my anal region and the last flare up was over 3 years ago. I don't recall them being soft, fleshy or squishy though. So..I'm thinking it's possible I've got hemorrhoids...has anyone had any experience with either two and know if either sounds familiar. I do intend on seeing a doctor, but I won't be able to until Monday. Unless I go to the ER again. Any advice would be highly appreciated. The 24/7 wedgie feeling is the worst!
