I've had hemorrhoids since I gave birth to my daughter a year ago that will not go away. However the last 7 days, I've experienced pain like never before. My anas is very swollen bleeding every time I go to the bathroom. Cannot sleep or sit and I'm getting cold chills. I've been referred to gastro by my OB but I'm in so much pain I really want to go to the ER but not sure it will be worth going if they cannot help or provide an end to this misery.
