OKay i may have waited a while for this but about 4 months ago, i started having difficulty completely passing a bowel movement. to describe it then is similar to now. Every time i go to the bathroom, unless it is diahrrea, i can never finish a bm due to some type of constriction. Cant find any other way to put it than this. It wont open enough to let everything out. I havent had a regular stoll pass since. it has always been soft. It gets about half way out and then it closes again leaving me to 'clean up the mess' I think my problem is an internal hemorhoid. Though i know it is swelling, i didnt know it could effect me like this. It is as you can get INCREDIBLY irritating. It doesnt hurt at all unless after going to the bathroom but even then it isnt much at all. Thereis only minor amounts of blood when wiping.
Is this an internal hemorrhoid?

Thereis only minor amounts of blood when wiping.Is this an internal hemorrhoid?The first questions i would ask is...how is your diet? If it is hemorrhoids, they are caused by straining to have a bowel movement. Are you getting enough bulk and roughage in your diet?Are you eating only whole grain breads?Are you eating fruit and or vegetables daily?Are you drinking water, up to 8 8 ounce glasses per day?Have you tried adding a bulk laxative to your daily regimen?Here is what i would do. I would pick up some magnesium citrate at any Walgreens or drug store. Drink it down completely with at least an 8 ounce glass of water. This is going to clean you out pretty thoroughly. If you are really backed up it may take 2 bottles. If you drink this stuff, do not be too far away from a toilet. Once your system is cleaned out, begin a regimen with all of the above. Your colon removes water from the stool in its journey out of you. The longer it remains in the colon, the more water is removed from it and this makes it hard and it can become impacted.Is the blood you see bright blood? If you do not see obvious external hemorrhoids, if the blood is streaked on the hard stool coming out especially, you should go to see a doctor about it. They may order up a colonoscopy to determine what the cause is. If it is simply a hemorrhoid, following a high fibre and bulk diet with lots of water is mandatory to get relief.Good luck to you.g.

  • You definitely need to see a GI doc. I have pretty severe internal hemorrhoids but never have hard stools and they pass without too much concern; however, I have an angulated colon (from scar tissue/adhesions) that holds back my elimination and when finally ready, I have to scurry in a hurry to the bathroom to eliminate, no holds barred. I am dealing with diverticulitis currently and that is yet another story but from what I'm reading, without a doubt you need a colonoscopy to see what is really going on. I have one every 3 years due to family history...really glad I had the one in August.

  • What are the causes of piles?Sitting on hot seats does not cause piles! They are caused by poor bowel habit like chronic straining at stools, constipation, sitting on the toilet for a long time (reading and listening to music!). In women, pregnancy and childbirth can cause piles or aggravate symptoms of piles. Piles often run in families, therefore hereditary may be an important factor especially in those who acquire piles at an early age. Piles will not turn into cancer but symptoms such as bleeding when passing motion can be due to both piles or cancer. It is not uncommon for patients to assume that their bleeding is due to piles and not bother to seek medical attention until the cancer has become very advance. take a look of natural health, fitness, beauty care below, maybe can help;)

  • You need to visit proctologist to check it out. It is the only way to clear up what the problem you have. Colonoscopy is annoying procedure, but quite short. Most common hemorrhoids symptoms are anal pain, itching and lumps near the anus. And these symptoms are usually get worse with BM.

  • I can't say with authority what the exact issue is but it looks like you should get professional opinion. I did a quick search for your problem and came across some thrombosed hemorrhoid treatment resources that I think might help you. Quite a few of these resources are actually government sites so I think they might be fairly reliable.

I'm not sure though if you can feel a swell on the anal area. Sometimes the muscle around the hemorrhoid can go into spasms and trap the stool. Sometimes it can be very painful. Prolapsed hemorrhoid also can leak mucous and make the cleaning very difficult & itchy. I'm only concerned because you said that it lasted for 4 months?Most hemorrhoids only last for around 1-2 weeks. Any hemorrhoids that can't be treated with self-treatment for more than 3 weeks should be referred to a doctor. I'm not sure if you have any other symptoms? You said you have soft stools. I'm not sure if you have diarrhoea or constipation or both alternating every time. Most importantly is to treat the cause. People with hemorrhoid usually either sit or stand for long time, involved in heavy lifting, lots of straining, pregnant, and so on. However, it can be some thing else like if you always have change in bowel habits for example.Sincerely

  • In last few days my cousin come to me and tell me he is suffering from hemorrhoids. I suggest him one technique which I read during my research on hemorrhoids the method was to sit under bath which is filled with warm water for 15 minutes for three days. After I meet with my cousin after a week or so he told me that he totally overcome from hemorrhoids. There are many guides on hemorrhoids which guide you many ways to overcome hemorrhoids

  • Internal hemorrhoids occur when there is swelling is in the rectal area. Internal hemorrhoids are not painful but need to be treated in order to prevent bleeding and to stop the agitation and further complications. Internal hemorrhoid cases are more sensitive than external hemorrhoid and so it involves a lot of money and effort to treating this type of hemorrhoid.___________________Internal Hemorrhoids Treatment

  • You can't feel the occurrence of internal hemorrhoids at inside area of rectum. Internal hemorrhoids are nothing but clotting of blood in varicose veins of inner rectal region.
