about a week ago I got my first hemorrhoid. I'm sure its a hemorrhoid based on information on the web, my diet as of late has been terrible.
My problem is, is that its a bleeding hemorrhoid. All links on the web are saying I should have this checked by a doctor, however I work 50 hours a week and I called the ER last night and its about a 14 hour wait. I'm not sure if I even need a doctor because:
The hemorrhoid is causing next to no pain on its own. Only when I wipe from a bowel movement.
Its the hemorrhoid thats bleeding, not my anus. (there is absolutly no blood in my stool)
I've had the hemorrhoid for about 4 days now, and I wasnt sure what it was at first, I believe I may have caused the bleeding by trying to pop it.
I take a hot bath atleast once a day and I'm using fiber supplements.
Should I wait it out and see if this goes away on its own? I really do not want to go through the time and embarrassment of going to the hospital.
Thanks in advance
