Everyone I haven't been on in a while but I need your support . A couple of weeks ago I woke up and had to use the restroom I had a bowel movement and it burned . I figured it was because I had hot chips the day before. However the itching and burning kind of never stops it's subsided as I hasn't been as bad as it was . But I do feel a lot of pressure and some type of scraping feeling when I use the restroom . Also had a little bit of blood . I went to the doctor today and he told me that my symptoms don't seem too concerning (hemorrhoids) and Gave me a anti-inflammatory for two weeks to see if it heals up and then we should go from there . They did do an exam but didn't see of feel anything they said they did see mild irritation but that was it . I have extreme health anxiety and worry that this could be something else . He told me before he even did the exam that he probably wouldn't be able to feel The hemorrhoid it was too small. Anyway he went on to talk about if it didn't clear out that I had probably be scoped or something and surgery and all the stuff ! Really freaked me out but then they said don't worry . He wasn't my primary Doctor so he really didn't understand how to word things to me . I'm still thinking something is wrong ! Any advice or similar situations? Not to mention I keep thinking about the intestinal issues I had in June and thinking that some disease has progressed inside of me ! Oh dear god! Why ?!
