Confused about hemorrhoids

Postby MirandaYvonne » 01 Aug 2020, 11:51

I’ve suffered both from fissures and hemorrhoids for a couple of years now. I believe I had a fissure again a couple weeks ago but I’m pretty sure it’s healed now (I’ve been getting used to telling the two kinds of pain apart). I know I have another hemorrhoid flare up though, since I’ve been having pain from that on and off this week. Yesterday and today I had a teeny tiny bit of blood when I wiped, and then some mild pain for a few hours down there. What I’m confused about is today I had an incredibly easy and soft BM, like it slid out absolutely no problem or pain. So I don’t understand why I bled today. I thought that hemorrhoids only bled when they were irritated by a harder BM, but am I wrong? Also, do only internal ones bleed? I think I might have an external one (I can never get a good look so I don’t know for sure) but I never know which kind are bleeding.

My bigger issue with these rectal problems is that it creates a lot of anxiety. I feel close to panicking right now just because I’ve bled two days in a row which isn’t the norm for me. I’m just so tired of these persistent issues and I don’t know how to fix it permanently.

Btw, usually when hemorrhoids get bad I use a hydrocortisone suppository, but today I put some Prep H with lidocaine on there. Hoping for a pain free day and praying this stuff shrinks it. Any advice or response is appreciated!
