So I recently been through antibiotics for diverticulitis. But I also have hemmorhoids. Yay! Ive had hemmorhoids flare up many times, but today is different. We all know the feeling of itching pain and reaching down to feel the tiny waterballoon like bump saying "Hello". But today I woke up with a flare and there is no pain or itching, just an annoying bump. I told the doctor I've had hemmorhoid flare ups and he has me on biofermin to keep me flowing for the next week. He seemed to dismiss my question about the lack of pain, office was crammed, saturday and all. He just said relax, take my biofermin and use cream if it hurts. Has anyone else ever had a flare up that didn't itch or burn? If it stays swollen after the weekend Ill be getting a second opinion.
