Re: I'm only 16 and I HAVE INTERNAL HEMORRHOIDS!
Hello mate. Cheer up a bit because it's not the end of the world having internal hemorrhoids and avoiding social events is not going to do you any good at all. None of your schoolmates will know if you don't tell them...it's not as if they are going to take a look is it! External hems however would have been a different issue.
At your age you should heal with the correct diet so get your mum educated on the food front, maybe even start preparing some food for yourself. If you are overweight slim off some and do regular excercise but it is very important not to strain until you are healed.
I can only guess that you have been doing some high energy activities where you put a lot of exertion on your abdomen. Weight lifting for example tends to bring it on but hemorrhoids can affect anybody at any age and who knows some of your school friends may also be suffering but not tell you.
You will heal in time, don't eat junk food ar anything else that might cause constipation and................. don't worry.......
..............as there's only one man who could embarrass you by being able to see inside with his x ray vision and the last time I heard he was off somewhere looking for kryptonite.
