I have had hemmroids and the doctor banded one, however said it wasn`t bad. I`m still in constant pain. It`s shart shooting pain like sitting on a pin cushion all the time. It burns and also itches. It feels like nerve pain.
Internal hemorrhoids do not cause these symptoms. Ask for a thorough exam to rule out a fissure or another abnormality of the anal canal that may be the culprit.
