Does walking make hemorrhoids worse?

Does walking make hemorrhoids worse?

Not really: Walking does not cause "hemorrhoids", but if you do have hemorrhoid prolapse (or a variety of other anal problems) walking may worsen your symptoms. Treatment of the underlying problem should eliminate the problem with walking. ...Read more

The veins in the rectum can swell and become puffy when a person has frequent pressure on them from pushing out a bm. This is constipation.

I was diagnosed with hemorrhoids earlier this summer. More than 75% of the time when I go for a vigorous 1 hour walk, I have bleeding. What can I do?

I was diagnosed with hemorrhoids earlier this summer.  More than 75% of the time when I go for a vigorous 1 hour walk, I have bleeding.  What can I do?

A little experiment: External hemorrhoids are no fun! Exercising to shed weight & enhance blood circulation will definitely help but we've got to protect those exposed blood vessels from friction. 1st, clean thoroughly with soap & water or hygiene wipes. 2nd, experiment with lubricants: coat generously with A&D, Bag Balm, Lanolin, Triple Paste, or even Active-Flex Band-Aid Blister Block. Tell us what works best! ...Read more

(External) hemorrhoid is painful. (Didn't try to pass stool; it just hurt all of a sudden after a lot of walking). Ways to ease discomfort at home??

(External) hemorrhoid is painful. (Didn't try to pass stool; it just hurt all of a sudden after a lot of walking). Ways to ease discomfort at home??

Considerations...: "healing" depends on whether the original cause for hemorrhoids persists. Have you been straining at stool, have rectal dysfunction, perform an activity that increases pelvic engorgement with blood or increases pelvic pressure (heavy lifting, prolonged sitting, etc.)? Have your hemorrhoids been surgically or medically managed (& with otc or prescription drugs)? Are you sure they're hemorrhoids? ...Read more

My job requires me to walk long distances every day and I have an external hemorrhoid. Will it heal? I can't take time off work.

My job requires me to walk long distances every day and I have an external hemorrhoid. Will it heal? I can't take time off work.

It depends: What kind of problems are you having with it? As a rule, external hemorrhoids don't go away on their own. But if they are not causing problems with pain or bleeding, nothing needs to be done about them. ...Read more

It : Won't impede healing and if your loose weight and stay active it may indirectly help. Advice: drink a lot of water, warm sit bath, cold compresses also may help. Do not linger sitting at the toilet. Good luck. ...Read more
