The Onset of Hemorrhoids
Do you often feel unrelieved even after you just moved your bowel? Are blood stains present in your stools and toilet tissue after wiping? Do you sense a burning feeling in anus and your lower rectum when you sit for a long period of time? If you have experienced any of the above symptoms, then these could be the onset of hemorrhoid growth.
Hemorrhoids are the abnormal swelling of veins in the anus and rectal wall. This condition can be likened to that of varicose veins in the legs. When you strain and exert pressure in your abdomen down to the rectal region of your body, the veins are also put under pressure, thus resulting to their enlargement. Some are caused by straining when moving one’s bowel, frequent diarrhea and chronic constipation, during and after pregnancy in women, and even weight-lifting can be a causal factor for anal veins to engorge. Upon the onset of hemorrhoids, the patient experiences discomfort and irritation in the anus.
There are two types of hemorrhoids: the internal and external hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids are not immediately detected until they have developed into a more severe stage and they start to bleed. The reason being is that tissues in the inner rectum have fewer nerves that can send out sensations to the brain that is why the patient could not feel any pain. When internal hemorrhoids worsen, they start to bleed and some are pushed out of the anus and into the open. This occurrence makes it extremely hard and difficult for the patient to defecate and the constant burning feeling in anus makes it impossible to focus on one’s daily normal activities. Even the act of simply sitting down for a time is torture. The external hemorrhoids are the lumps outside the anus that have prolapsed. These pea-sized lumps have a purple to dark coloring due to blood clotting. External hemorrhoids are very painful and unpleasant to deal with more so than the internal hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids sufferers are constantly in search for remedies to alleviate or get rid of this health dilemma. There are some known cures to be found online that can be beneficial to both patients and physicians alike.
