Know about piles or haemorrhoids.
Piles are pretty scary, painful, and irritating. I am sharing this because I was one of the victims of this dreadful condition. As a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) student, I had gone through this painful state. Though the pain was not regular, it recurred after a week or fortnight as a tiny reddish and spherical ball in the lower gastrointestinal area at the external anus. I can’t express how it was soring and agonising me, especially during the release of stools. Sometimes, it was also distressing and frustrating. It hinders my study a lot. Gradually, it became a fistula. I went through surgery but failed. The second surgery was also unsuccessful; simultaneously, the passing stool was getting painful. Then, one of my friends suggested I try Homeopathy medicines for the problems. I consulted a good homoeopathic doctor in my area, who told me a few homoeopathic medicines. I was surprised that it started showing positive results within a week. After a few months, I overcame this irritating problem.
What are piles?
Piles are small ball-like structures that can be generally seen either in the outer or inner anus region. These reddish or yellow-blackish tiny structures are nothing but an accumulation of blood. They may cause discomfort in walking, sitting, and driving, especially while passing tools. Generally, piles are found inside the anus, but in severe condition, it protrudes outside. Sometimes with constipation patients, the skin surrounding the anus region also gets stretched, and straining causes intense pain while passing stool. Such pains remain continued for days. It needs care and medical advice. In some cases, the chair also passes through the piles.
