I had some external ones, I felt like I was pooping razor blades through barbed wire. I had flat blood on the tp, (meaning not clumply flare blood).
I did the prep h wipes, supps and creme, finally got a script for steriod supps that is what finally helped me.
Uuugh, I know how you feel, they are horrible. Try the other stuff first, that helped me 5 years ago when I first got them, oh and warm salt baths..........oh so much fun!
