For a while now whenever I go to the bathroom I get a bright red blood when I wipe. Also, going to the bathroom is very painful, it feels almost as though I am ripping myself. I tend to have to strain alot in order to go. I have tried fiber supplements and increasing the fiber in my diet but it doesnt seem to be working. Any ideas?
It sure sounds like you have hemmorhoids.
Do you drink plenty of water? If you don't get enough fluids, fiber will make things worse. You should drink 6 cups of water a day or more, if you're active.
