Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. Yes, it is possible. Hemorrhoids are veins that have become engorged with blood, often due to straining as with heavy weight. In many cases, the engorgement will resolve in time, however in some cases surgery may be required. My recommendation to you is to see a Colo-rectal Doctor who specializes in the treatment of hemorrhoids so that you can receive the treatment you need to resolve this pain and discomfort you have been struggling with for so long.
I also want to add that you may have internal hemorrhoids as well.
Thank you. Unfortunately, i did see a specialist at the cleveland clinic and I doubt very much he believed me. He only gave me literature on the importance of a high fiber diet and keeping area free of irritation. I was hoping he would suggest other testing such as an MRI or ultrasound. And the exam itself flared up my problem.
Sometimes one Doctor may overlook something another Doctor will detect...
There are other possibilities
do you have rectal bleeding?
no bleeding. and I try to stay regular so no hard movements
There are nerves that originate in the spine that can cause a feeling of fullness and pain in the rectum
this can be the cause, if there is no evidence of hemorrhoids
Thanks. I will hit the accept button next. I appreciate your help.
You are very welcome... ask your Doctor for a referral to a neurologist... the nerve that can be responsible is called the pudental nerve.
