Hi folks, for about a year while living in my travel trailer I suffered with a medium sized thrombosed hemorrhoid that refused to go away. I saw two professionals, got treatment, tried every cream out there... it never went away... until I stopped living in my travel trailer. For a year and a half I was blissfully free from the thrombosed hemorrhoid... but within a week of living in my travel trailer again, it's back. Here's my theory: it's the bed in my travel trailer. It's memory foam and very firm. When I lay on the right side of it flat on my back, my right leg starts to fall asleep. If I sleep in the center of the bed, it's better, but still too firm. The thrombosed hemorrhoid is on the left side down there... and I primarily sleep on my left side. Might try ordering another mattress topper, but it doesn't seem to matter how much I pile on top of this mattress, my body always seems to feel the firmness.
The question is: can a lack of blood circulation caused by something like an extra firm mattress cause a thrombosed hemorrhoid? If not, I have no other way of explaining how after 1.5 years it suddenly reappears within a week of living in my trailer again. It's something I want to be sure of because getting and setting up a new mattress and getting rid of the old one is kind of a pain.
Really appreciate any thoughts/feedback.
