The Other David asks:

A few weeks ago, I have developed what is called a haemorrhoidal aneurism (not necessarily an actual haemorrhoid, proper). Now, to my understanding, that is caused by hard faecal matter, such as being rather constipated. Now, my question is, as I most certainly have not been constipated, in fact more towards the opposite end, i. e. having frequent bouts of the runny shits, what would cause this? Perhaps the frequent rush of soft or liquid faecal matter?

No pun intendeed, this haemorrhoidal aneuism has been a pain in the butt! I am afraid , regretably, that this may be with me throughout the Christmas Holiday! In other words, how long would something like this last?

Dear Other David,

As you know, I am not an actual Poop Doctor. So I have to do the best I can with what I have to work with.

My exhaustive, 5 minute search on Yahoo! did not turn up any information on Hemorrhoidal aneurysms, so I am forced to assume the condition does not exist.

A plain old hemorrhoid is an aneurysm of sorts. It is a bulging, prolapsed vein inside your butt. This can be caused by many things. It is not always the fault of constipation. Here are some potential causes:

Erect posture

Back flow

Abdominal pressure

Constipation and straining at Defecation




Family history

Portal Hypertension

Anatomic abnormalities

No hemorrhoidal venous valves

Intrinsic weakness of anal blood vessels

So as you can see, you need to get to work ruling out some of these contributing factors. You can start with pregnancy!

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

Got a question for her?

If you have frequent liquid shits your condition is probably being cause by acid on your butthole.

Good point TSV.

The constant heaving of the anus during a diarreah episode, can upset hemmorhoids.
