Hemorroids that affect Sciatic Nerve

I have had a problem with pain radiating down to my ankle for years now, and just realized that the pain I thought was pelvic turned out to coming from the anus, and feels much like a burning that feels like hemorroids. Had a bout with one after childbirth many years ago, and never gave them another thought...

I have been told by gyn that I have hemorroid, she never elaborated at exams, but, I am feeling as if she has under diagnosed how much trouble I may have had from it or them....I have complained about pain near the tailbone/anal area for over 8 yrs....this pain has caused leg tightness, etc....

I just read on another website that there is a condition known as Hemorroidal Sciatica, where the hemorroids can press on the sciatic nerve....

The right side of the anus seems to be the affected side....does hemorroids affect only one side? or can they be predominant on one side, left or right....

Has anyone else gone a long time without being diagnosed as having hemorroids, fissures or fistula for years? I did notice what I thought was bright red blood on tissue last week, normally I would not have noticed....perhaps this has happened often.....

I feel like I should have sensed this direct pain in the rectum sooner and not believe it was muscular the way my gyn led me to believe......this has been a severe pain that has cost me much over the years...

anyone else ??
