Piles of problems

Posted , 8 users are following.

During pregnancy I had inherited some piles(quite a few) They were inactive and didn't hurt me. Recently have a very very painful pile(heamoroid). Has anyone else suffers form any piles. How do you treat ir or stop the pain? Is this to do with peri again? Too emberrassed to go to the gp for it.

    I suffer dreadfully. I've got fissures too (little tears in the skin) so itchy and sore. Mine only started when peri started so I think they're linked. Doc gave me some cream, bought OTC stuff, nothing works. Mine is worse just before and during my period and around ovulation. Sorry I can't suggest a remedy but at least u know ur not alone x

    Hi, Yes I got them giving birth and apart from the first few weeks after they never bothered me until perimenopause. Then first they began to itch so I've had to change from thongs to knickers with a bum lol.

    Then later I became constipated and that caused them to become painful again.

    I know it can be very painful. I got them from giving birth, as many of us do...mine flare up from time to time.

    Three years ago, whilst on holiday in New York ( I'm from London!) I was walking and standing loads, my system got out of synch so a bit constipated too...had to buy OTC cream from pharmacy...

    It eventually calmed down.

    I suffered a very bad case a few months ago and had to go to GP. There doesn't seem to be a lot they can do ( as usual!)

    For me, the most important thing is to never get constipated...for my own well being and piles...

    To prevent this, I eat healthily , walk lots and take 400mg magnesium

    Goo luck jx

    Oh Dear, brings tears to my eyes just thinking about pilescry.  I suffered from late teens to mid twenties, trying every OTC remedy possible. I had injections (not pleasant) and finally had to have surgery which stopped me being able to work for 18 weeks.  Enough of the horror stories....

    Eat plenty of fibre - things like Weetabix, jacket potatoes, porridge etc and plenty of fruit.  Keep well hydrated with water, constipation results when fluid is removed from the stools causing them to harden and be difficult to pass.  Fybogel can be bought OTC, but is not to everyone's taste (yuk!).

    After going to the loo don't wipe, if possible have a warm (not hot) shower and pat dry or try unscented baby wet wipes.

    Haemorrhoids are not funny, nor should they be a source of embarrassment - it's amazing how common they are. If you are really suffering see what your GP can offer, there are treatments other than the radical haemorrhoidectomy.

    I hope you get some relief soon
