Does anyone else feel like they’re more prone to anal fissures/tears because of weak skin? I find that any time I go through bouts of constipation I have pain and bleeding.

    I used to see blood on the toilet paper after using the bathroom. My doctor checked and said there are several cuts there but nothing more serious. I have no idea if the EDS caused it…

    OH. MY. GOD. YESSSSSS. I have been bleeding rectally since 2000 (no lie or exaggeration, plus I have Crohn’s disease).
