    Hemmroids causing bleeding

    I have expiericing rectal bleeding and pain since November 2010. The bleeding started before the pain.

    I don't have insurance so is this something that I should be concerned about being a true health issue/emergency or is it just a case of bleeding hemmoroids that will get better in time?

    I have added fiber to my diet....don't strain to have a bm and have tried sitz baths and tucks and preparation H with no relief.

    I am going to be 50 in April and I am a white female.

    If you dont have insurance then a ER visit is recommended. At your age, I would get checked out asap to rule out other serious causes.

    are you on any medications that might cause your bleeding.
