Hemmorhoids and lots of questions!
I never had any kind of problem from hemmorhoids before - (I'm 49 years old) - but all of a sudden I am in A LOT of pain! It really started about two months ago - I woke up in the middle of the night with stomach cramps and ended up having diarrhea and vomiting for several days. I finally went to an urgent care and they treated me for diverticulitis. Since then I've had a little pain and itching once in a while even when not going to the bathroom. Then a couple of weeks ago it started burning and itching alot. Does anyone know of ANY over the counter medication to help with this. It is driving me insane! I'm in misery all day and all night. I try to take a tylenol pm or something to help me sleep, but it doesn't help. PLEASE, PLEASE give me some suggestions before I go crazy. Also, if it comes to going to the dr. exactly what type of doctor do I make an appointment with? (Although, after reading the horror stories of people who had to have surgery I am totally frightened) Thanks so much for any help you can give me!
