Is it just hemorrhoids?!

I have been having pain when I go to the bathroom. It feels sometimes as if I am pooping glass. At times there is blood and sometimes there isnt. I got some hemrroid medicine and the blood is gone but it still hurts a little.

It could be hemorrhoids and it sounds like it but it is always best to get examined by a Doctor to make sure it is not serious.

Sounds like you have an anal fissure. Try not to let it become chronic as it then usually ends up with surgery. Read everything you can about anal fissure. In a nutshell (avoid nuts by the way as they can be abrasive) you need to eat lots of fibre, drink lots of water (very important) and keep your stools soft so that you don't keep tearing yourself I take loads of olive oil as well as the water to keep regular. Hopefully it will then cure itself but you will always have to keep an eye on what you eat from now on. Try at all costs to avoid constipation .....oh and excercise. Good luck.

The feeling of pooping glass is a classic sign of an anal fissure, along with the blood. Go see a doctor. Anal fissures are difficult to heal completely and most often you need the help of a prescription, nitroglycerine, to relax the sphincter so you can heal. If you do not heal it completely now it can become chronic and you may deal with it on and off for the rest of your life. Go see a doctor.

Re: Is it just hemorrhoids?!

I bet you have an anal fissure. I went to the doctor yesterday and had mine checked. The doctor said I have a fissure. I had one a year and a half ago. They hurt like heck. I usually have bleeding with mine. The sitz bath helps and I get prescription suppositories. Those work so well and heal me up quick. But ya, it burns like heck having a bowel movement. Good luck!
