okay - i was good for a week and the past few days i've been going and going. I notice a small bump and this morning after i wiped there was a lot of blood. i could tell it was not in my bowels so i am assuming it came from the bump. Is this a hemmorhoid? Can they bleed?
I've had one before but it just went away on it's own and i didn't have this problem before.

Yes and yes. Boo, it definitely sounds like a hemmie. Honestly, unless it becomes a common occurance or it becomes incredibly painful or bothersome, I'm not sure there's much docs can do about it. I say you get it checked out, but don't expect miracles. Surgery seems to be the only option in extreme cases.
It might help if you take a stool softener. That way your BMs won't hurt so much when passing by the hemmie. You can also try Preperation-H and Tucks. Some people also talk about that donut ring to sit on.
Good luck! Here's hoping it doesn't become too painful for you.

I have IBS-D so I'll pass on the stool softener - LOL but maybe will try the tucks. I was just in shock when I saw the blood and really had no idea what to do. It hurts but is bearable so I'll take your advice and try tucks - maybe it might soothe the pain a bit. Thanks for responding. I wanted to make sure they could bleed as I've never experienced that before. :-)

Oh ya, sorry, don't take the stool softener if you have D already. LOL Hemmies do indeed bleed. In fact, I've heard people say they can bleed a lot. That would definitely be a reason to get it checked out by the doc. Tucks and/or Preperation-H should help with the burning/pain and itching.

I had one not too long ago and it bled like the devil over quite a few hours. Not pouring out but much more than I would have expected. I did go to Dr. as I was not aware I had a hemmie and he said I did have internal hemmies and one had ruptured. The bleeding subsided after about 12 hours and have had none since. He wanted to do some procedure to get rid of it but after talking with friends they say they have had this happen and then never again so I canceled. He is too quick to do procedures, I think. I was surprised how much blood there was.

there is a cream called Nupracanal, and it is AMAZING! It saved my aunt surgery, and prolonged my moms surgery a lONG time. It is great for hemmies, the pain after having D all the time, itching and sunburn. Its a miracle cream. It is a bit expensive, but worth it.
have a blessed week.

I've had hemmies for years and years and years. If they thrombose (blood clot) they get more painful than you can imagine. I would suggest Metamucil even though you have D. My worst hemmies came from D and the metamucil helped absorb more water. I hope you're feeling better.

Why don't you ask the pharmacist for what they have in place of it. I don't know why they would stop selling it as it is widely used. Most drug stores have their own brands but maybe they just put it behind the counter. I would be very careful using it though as it can cause bloating and it will bulk up the stool which might be harder to pass. Start very slowly on it but I would ask the pharmacist for advice before you buy it. They must have a substitute. Zillions of people use it daily.

Go get them checked out. I too had hemmies, one day I went to get them removed and that was where my tumor was hiding...yep cancer. Never would I have thought I would have cancer lurking within my hemmies. So take the advice go get them checked.

Hi! I just think that before going to an actual doctor, why not make a quick research on the internet first. It is best to know what a hemorrhoid Doctor can do, so at least you will have an idea beforehand what to expect.

Hemorrhoids can be very irritating and very painful when you sit down. When your hemorrhoids are still inside your anus, take natural remedies such as eating a high fiber diet and drink plenty of water. But if I were you, I would look for any information I can get in the internet about hemorrhoids before consulting to an actual hemorrhoid Doctor.

I too have hemmies. I have had them since having my kids 20 years ago, but they didnt seem to become a real problem until the IBS-D decided to rear it's ugly head after prolonged antibiotic use.....anyway, I had bleeding and went to the doc (twice) who said hemmies...keep your stools soft...no worries there, w/D they're soft! So I tried prep H but it didnt seem to help..in fact, they got worse. Then after looking it up online I learned that talcum powder can help. I tried it and it worked. I have had no bleeding for 6 months now, and my discomfort is minimal. I use (Gold Bond Ultimate Comfort with Aloe---talc free--the talc brands made me itch)

I have to say that I have also been managing my IBS as well; and reduced the D episodes considerably. I am now gluten, dairy and soy free; and take an anxiety med everyday, pepcid AC, probiotics, and lactose defense w/probiotics (in case I accidentally eat dairy). Things are much better, but I still obsess over the hemmies and my bowl movements.

I hope this helps.
