Default Another Problem (semi serious)

Hello there, I have been asking people for advice and then I thought, who better than MoM, Im not sure if there are any doctors/GP's on here but I have reason to believe that I have haemorrhoids, I have searched the net for symptoms and I have pretty much all of the symptoms for internal haemorrhoids, I just need a bit of advice on how to get rid of/dull the pain.
I am visiting my local GP tomorrow morning (not looking forward to any examination), but I was just wondering if anyone who has had haemorrhoids before can offer me some advice.

I have had a lot of advice from everyone here in the past *hugs all* but this matter may be a bit more serious than any others I have posted about.

The best motherly advice I can offer on this one is go ahead and see your doctor. Don't be shy, tell the doctor exactly what you are feeling. It is not that rare of a problem, but it's one that should have professional attention.

Another mother agreeing
GP's are pretty kind understanding people and he/she will probaly have a female nurse on hand
With any luck, it won't be as serious as you are thinking
Good luck

Don't take medical advice from random people that you know online. See a doctor.

I'm a horrible hypocrite for saying this, but make sure you see the Doc.

As everyone else has been saying, see your medical practitioner. Haemerroids are a very common problem, and most of us will get them at some stage or another.

Plus it's also important to recognise that it is a good thing to get into seeing the appropriate medical practitioner as soon as you can. If you delay, with many things, it can get a whole lot worse than if you popped in as quickly as you could.

Good luck. It's better to take care of medical problems early, before they get really serious.

What Grani said. Take it from someone who knows.

Listen to your docs If I had I would have lost weight years ago I probably wouldn't need a knee replacement in a few years from arthritis.
