Hi, last night I went to the toilet and I felt pain as I released my stool, when I stood the pain was severe and I could hardly walk for  few minutes, the severe pain persisted for about 5 mn=inutes before it eased, since then I have gone 3 times with the same result. now it feels like I need to go very often but I am reluctant because of the discomfort.

I did suffer from piles many years ago, I am wondering if they have returned?
