In Reply to: Hemeroids and Constipation posted by Just Me on October 13, 2000 at 01:39:32:


: I've been having problems with BM since I was very little. My normal time interval for having a urge to go is every 4-6 days, and if I don't go, than I have to wait again. I think I have some problems with my reflexes in my anus or something like that. I have internal and external hemeroids as a result. But recently my stomach and my intestines hurt very much. I've taken that test 'c----scope' (forgot the name) where you drink barium (SICK!!!) but they found nothing. But my stomach still hurts alot...Please help me!!! What should I do with the constipation, the hemorrhoids and the pain?
: THANKS

Hi--Mary is right you are not gettng enough fiber in your diet as a result you are constipated. You can have all the test you want but none tell you to eat more fiber. I like psyllium husk supplements the best. It is a bulk stool forming agent -water soluble so that you will be regular as a clock and your BMs will be gentle--As a result your hemorrhoid problems will go away.You can get psyllium in the powder or capsule form. The caps you have to get at a health food store. The powder you can get at Wal Mart ---Metamucil, Konsyl, Equate, etc.
God Bless----Harry
