Herpes or hemorrhoids? Please help!

Posted , 2 users are following.

So... since last Saturday I’ve been having this sharp pain feeling in my rectum. So I started taking preparation H suppository til Tuesday and that’s when I was in so much pain i went to the urgent care. They said it was internal not external hemorrhoids so she gave me some cream and told me to keep using the preparation H. Friday comes along and it’s still hurting. Haven’t used the restroom that much this week. Haven’t really been able to eat. Wakes me up in the middle of the night because of the pain. I just don’t know what to do. Because they keep saying it’s hemorrhoids but it’s not clearing up. Can anyone please tell me what this is. Or at least looks like. Because now it’s inflamed from the outside and it’s really painful. At night I feel like I’m going to faint every time.

    There’s no picture for us to see.  But honestly if the pain is that bad that you feel faint and the stuff the doctor has prescribed hasn’t helped then you need to go back again!  Haemorrhoids can take a little while to clear up.   Depending on the type.  But go see your GP!   All the best
