So I have had a bad bout of ibs, and have had hemorroids in the past, also whilst pregnant, but that was mild compared to these bastards..

Started Saturday night. I did not sleep at all that night, even though I rummaged around and found some Prep H in the cupboard and plastered it on. So yesterday ds needed something from a particular shop, and typically the shop in in the middle of a huge shopping centre, so I had to drive there, park, walk into centre, walk to the shop, around the shop, back to car. Dear god I nearly collapsed with the pain. In the end it was a shuffle to the car.

So clearly the Prep H isn't doing anything at all, as they were even bigger than the day before, so did some googling and saw they recommend apple cider vinegar. So I thought, right I have some of that, and dabbed some on. OMG, I nearly vomited, it was so sore... so after an hour it was not getting less painful, so back into the bath to wash it off. Then I see that they recommend Vicks Vaporub. I just couldn't face more pain, so used the PH again, took some pain relievers, woke up in the night with this throbbing pain again.

So this morning, I thought bugger, I'm going to try the Vicks. So I did. It is strangely soothing, like a cooling effect. But the bastards are still huge and its really so sore. I have birth TWICE with no pain relief, but this, is 100 times worse pain wise.

So if you used either ACV or Vicks, how long before its starts to work....please....
