i have had a hemorrhoid for several years that never bothered me. i was told i had it 7 years ago by my gastro. i just had a colonoscopy about 7 months ago and just my hemorrhoid was found. i've only had one flare up about 2 yrs ago but the other day i had another one. I believe my hemorrhoid is an internal one because i never see it but i do have blood when i wipe after a bowel movement sometimes. i was just wondering about the type of hemorrhoid i have and the pain that comes with it. all the info on the net says internal hemorrhoids don't hurt. mine hurts and it's not showing. i will admit my pain is more like a soreness or achy feeling around my anus and lower but area, sitting is when i feel it most. the constant need to go is not considered pain i gues but dang if it isn't annoying. does all this sound like anything someone else deals with. I can't see my doctor for about a week and just wanted some answers.
