Get some cream from doctor.....that's what I did. Also I did read somewhere about putting ice on them. Never tried that though.

Ice is brilliant, try filling the fingers of a rubber glove and tying them in a knot then freezing them. That way you have a small ice cube ready at night. I used to sleep with one, hard to get used to for the first few minutes but after that bliss and if you tie it tightly no water leakage :-)

Im not liking the sound of this! I am 16 weeks with 2nd baby and keep getting little shooting pains in back passage - Is that piles or just yet another unexplained PG thing! I wouldn't be surprised, ive been so constipated this time.

i found the only thing that helped was sitting in a bowl of salt water. stings like buggery (lol!) when you first sit down but the relief is amazing. also helps clean affected area so its a double bonus
