Hey all , so my anxiety is always in my gut . That is were I feel it the most . The problem is that I have Internal Hemorrhoid (which I am sure has been caused by my anxiety- since I was little I always complained I had a sore tummy ) that can Flair up and be super sore , when I go ( that could be 3-4 times a day ! ) every time I go the pain is so sore and triggers my anxiety and then “poop feeling “ comes back . It’s like a vicious cycle. ! Anyone else have this problem ? And if so what can I do ?

Hi I suffer with them, both inside and outside they are horrible, my do bleed not all the time but wen their bad they do, I find sitting on a hot water bottle and after I been toilet run a warm bath not hot just warm and add some salt it eases it next time u go poop, and I can hardly walk wen I’m really bad it helps a lot x

You have a vagus nerve that goes from your brain to your gut. Something like Miralax is good because it draws water into your intestines. No strain. Drink fruit juice. As for the hemorrhoids be sure you’re putting your feet on a stool so your knees are up a little when you go; a few inches off the seat.

Thank you so much for this advice

Thanks for that advice I go through the same situation and it’s horrible
