    I too have very painful piles, one of which has prolapsed. It hurts so much. I have found that putting ice in a rubber glove and placing I against the pile has helped. I also found that a hot bath with about 2-3 inches of water in 3/4 times a day has helped too. I had very mild internal piles 4 years ago and they hadn't bothered me again until about 9 months ago... Get them sorted now and maintain a high fibre diet.. don't strain!! Get help with constipation asap... I regret not paying more attention after my first case of piles. Just took it for granted that it had gone :(

    Hi, I'm in exactly same position I'm also 23, with 2 young children and my youngest has been through 2 major open heart ops I feel so silly that I can't get my teeth sorted. I feel so horrible and have no confidence and my 3year old is starting to notice my teeth are horrible :( I just don't no what to do... I looked at dental implants but I'd never be able to afford them! It stops me eating some foods aswel as I'm worried they're not strong enough they break easily.. :(

    Hey, i'm 18 and i believe i have pcos. I have the regular symptoms of; no period, excessive hair growth over a wide range of my body including facial hair,tummy, back, thighs,arms,bum and just everwhere really, and it's not little amounts of hair, it's full on thick as it comes. Also I have undeveloped breasts. I have a rather bad fear of doctors though, so i'm afraid of going, but i fear i may never get out of my depression, if i do not do something about this. (i've been so close to ending it over and over again). I was wondering if anyone would recommend getting over my fear and seeing a doctor? or to firstly loose weight as i'm over weight? (19 stone 10.5 lbs) as i've heard it can clear up after this?! ..Lastly undeveloped breasts, do they usually look like tubular breasts, or is that another thing to add to my freak list? :/

    I'm a dental nurse. You can have a brace fitted on a private basis but not on the NHS as they only allow free orthodontic treatments to under 18s. Your looking at about £150 for an orthodontic consultation and anything upto £2-3000 for an orthodontic appliance plus quarterly visits to the orthodontist.

    I only have one fear in life and its the sheer amour of work I need done in my mouth, I'm 28 and iv not been to a dentist for at least 10 years, iv had abscess's over and over. I have like 9 bottom and even less top. I am terrified, even dental adverts on tv make me feel so uncomfortable I dont think i could get in the chair I'd need knocked out, thinking of it strikes fear in me. I simply can't afford the bill either. I hardly go out anymore it's so embarrassing to speak to people and its affecting my speech it really gets me down... What can I do? I'm at my wits end it's horrendous looking!

    --Mate--I am in my 60's but since I had major dental (caps ,bridges etc) in the Philippines--I can say my smile/image/confidense has improved 100%.That was 5 yrs ago.Total cost around 2000$ including airfares/accomadation.You can get similar deals in Vietnam I believe..BUT--a big but--you have to take good care of your teeth/dental hygene--with the caps etc --otherwise you will get same problems repeat.Brush after evry meal--cut down sugars,use saline regularly--gargle and wash.Cheers

    I have recently developed an irrational fear of the dentist. I've never been worried before, but in the last year or two I've had a lot of work done, and I think this has triggered me to be scared. I found out a couple of months ago that I need to have a wisdom tooth extracted, I've never had a tooth out before and this absolutely terrifies me. Another one of my wisdom teeth has been causing me pain now too. My fear has become so bad that it provoked a panic attack, which I have never suffered with before. I am so absolutely terrified of having wisdom teeth out and I was wondering if they would do this procedure under a general anesthetic? I'm really worried that I won't be able to go through with the procedure if I am awake during, or if I do go ahead that I'll have a panic attack or something, I'm so scared!

    I fear cancer as my elderly aunt died of ovarian and sister of cervical. I am normally great about going to the OB but my son is ill and autistic and my ex and I split years ago. The only sex since was oral so I didn't think that would effect my insides. My issue is a few yrs ago I developed large pimple like cyst on labia they were painful days to weeks to go away. Then when I saw my OB I saw the female NP not my doc and asked about hard bumps she said they were dry sebasiouse glands in other words a dehydrated pimple that didn't pop. Now my labia gets rough and lumpy and sometimes painful like a pimple but it is the entire labia major not vigina . No smell no discharge and no time for me to check this unless someone says they are medically qualified and it needs attention. Help put fear to rest or help with what will make it stop hurting!

    just take it step by step i used 2 be afraid ov the dent ist but now im fine dontworry about it if yo cant go that day try the day after my secret use baking powder :)

    As a child I was petrified of the dentist and was therefore reluctant to go as a teenager and after recieving the all clear once I didn't go back for 3 years. However I've managed to find a really good dentist now who keeps me calm and talks me through everything as she does it. I was recommended by my sister that she was good, so I'd say ask friends and family if they could advise a decent one and tell the dentist from day one your fears, most of them are normal people and would listen and be gentle with u.

    aaah this is a nightmare !! I am 18. I have been having great, normal sex for 2 years and now all of a sudden I'm hit with this !! 10 months I have been suffering from this. My gp looked at me like I was talking another language and refered me to Relate (really good by the way guys !!!) however after a while they said they weren't quite right for me. I am petrified of examinations but I fear it is my only way. My family Planning clinc has suggested this is the only way. its easy for them to say "just face your fear" but it's the biggest fear I have. After 10 months I don't think I can take any more - perhaps it is time for me to shut my eyes and go to the Gyno's :( !!!

    It's debilitating isn't it, I know, I just dislike it sooooo much. However, I've come to realise, it's not really the going red that's any problem, but its the fear attached to it that's really the debilitating thing, it, the fear, stops you right in your tracks, I know. Eliminate the fear and you're free. Being willing not to react or be afraid when I go red is a choice, being willing to choose rest instead of tensing up, is totally up to me. I do have a choice, one or the other. Willingness to choose rest is a very powerful key to unlocking freedom within us. We are all on a journey, we are here on purpose, to live and enjoy life. I believe in you, you can do it :)

It doesn't look cute to me and if I don't like it how can my partner , I just don't know how to accept it . I don't even like to look at it I feel like a freak.

    It's completely understandable to feel that way but I can promise you, men really do not care about what it looks like. I have something similar, too, and not one of the 6 men I've been with have said anything about it. The truth is, it bothers us more than it will ever bother anyone else. The key is to learn to accept and love what you have and no guy will have anything to say about it. And if a guy ever does make a negative comment about the way any part of your body looks, he's worthless and probably just trying to cover up his own insecurities!

    Just take it easy guy's love everything and every type of pussy. they just need some happiness from your side too. And i assure that you will have good sex life.

    Hi, I have suspected Endometriosis, I'm only fourteen years old. I fear that If I have it could possibly get worse.. I'm on medication but they won't do anything to check. I've had several ultra sounds. If I do have it, I've had it along time. I fear that this will cause complications for if I want children when I'm older. My doctors won't listen or tell me anything when I ask. All they say is We'll look through scans" the can't pick anything up through scans! any help would be nice thank you. :) Emily.

    Thanks for your comment. Becoming intimate with someone and the fear of rejection is a challenge for so many men and women with HS. It is always great to hear how people approach the situation and always comforting to hear positive stories of people getting over the fear and finding happiness.

    I have like, a MAJOR fear of dentists and haven't been in about 5 years. My mum didn't go for while and got told she got taken off the register. I know I should get a checkup soon, but I don't know if I have been taken off the register as I'm under 16.I'm also really scared of what they'll say and I can't stand the drill or the chair or anything. Anyone know anything I can do to help?? Last time the fear was so bad I puked on the dentist... mainly the reason why I haven't been.

    As you are under 16 (and depending on which part of the UK you are in) it is likely that you still will be registered with the same dentist. Make an appointment, let them know you're anxious and they'll do their best to help you. Hope it works out for you.

    Hi there! I have the same problem as you have had in the past. I sometimes want to give up but just hold on. I suffered bad in 2007 and since then, have been getting this but not as bad as then. I'm a follower of Jesus and I believe He heals the sick. I'm a thyroid patient and constipation is one of the side effects and hence the fissures and hemmis. I'm waiting on my healing. I live in fear everyday which is not good at all. I do believe He is not given to us a spirit of fear but of power of love and of a sound mind. God bless you!

    my gums and my teeth are a mess i have two bridges and a sheared back tooth for the last nine years i have always had an abnormal fear of dentist but also suffer panic attacks my jaw dislocates if open to wide and i am to afreid to go to the dentist the fear is too overcoming my gums are quite puffy and sore and receding is there somewhere on nhs that will treat me while asleep

    May be not a dental issue, possibly producing to much saliva from your glands.. Could be a sort of speech impediment that needs to be addressed.. So forget about the fear of Dentist, I would be see a GP... P.S. Just for basic information, Dentists are nothing like you think they are, the images of dentistry is nothing like the 1950's or the farcical images you see on Television..Dont allow the fear to grow from mole hill to mountain in your head..Take care

    Hi, I suffer with ocd, and I know it starts with a thought then a fear and then a compulsion, so if your house isn't clean what is the fear? I like my hOuse clean to but it isn't my ocd, it's the sense of responsibility to have to so it again and this is down to an anxiety disorder I also suffer with. I would go to your gp, you need expert help to sort through what's going on, remember its only a problem if it affects your ability to function and this is for you. If you are on twitter there is quite a good ocd community and ocd action is great.

    Hi, I'm 15Years Old [No Name] and i am leaking a fluid (not sure what fluid) a lot, and it has only been since september-ish i've been having this - i've been to my local doctor about it, and i've done three urine samples - the first two comfirmed i had a Urine Infection, however, the last did not - my doctor has now referred me to a Ureaologist - i fear that it has nothing to with my urine, and i've researched, and i fear i may have an enlarged prostate - and im only young - Help?

    I had phimosis for 5 years and was scared to go to the doctor because i knew they would cut my foreskin off and i thought it would be painfull. anyway 5 years of worry and fear i went to the hospital, and to be honest all i felt was the pin prick in my hand to make me fall asleep, i woke up and its all done. im on day 3 of recovery, it has never hurt when i have gone to the toilet and the only little bit of pain i get is like a little cut on your hand hardly nowt, when i knock it in my pants. all the fear etc i went through was pointless, if you need it please get it done as you will feel loads better and by the way it looks better ;-0

    Hi, I'm 28 and for most of my life iv lived with this condition. I get embarressed very easily and my face 'burns' bright red, i get blotches on my chest, down my arms and even down my legs. It has absoluty destroyed my confidence as a human being, at the worst point in my life i couldnt even walk to my local shops for fear of getting embarressed and blotching, incase i saw someone i know who might come up and say hello to me. It can happen at any time regardless of what im doing. If im having a drink, if im nervous, iv cried, iv laughed, when i get excited, during sex. Im fed up of having to explain it to people!! It has ruined my life, i hate working for fear of it happening in front of strangers. meeting new people. I feel like a freak and that i cant live my life the way i way i want to. I cant dress in normal clothes, i have to hide my body for fear of it happening. It depresses me and iv asked my doctor for help several times, only to be told, 'You just have to live with it'

    I have the same condition, and I am told the same thing by the doctors. I also developed agoraphobia in my mid teens, and was put on Seroxat, as my fear of going red brings on panic attacks. I have tried hypnotherapy, counselling and Beta Blockers all haven't helped. If you do find out any remedies please let me know.

    My Brother who is 16 years old has been off lately a victim of sleep terror!.He shouts at the top of his voice with fear! and at times he does talk, but shouting with fear is what actually freaks me and my parents totally! We try to wake him up, so that he would stop screaming, which takes a few 10-15 mins for him to come back to senses,we have been trying to speak to him, but he says he doesn't remember any of the things which he dreamed, to which I strongly feel that he is trying to hide the facts from us, fearing a mockery or god knows what! But all this has lead us 3 all to sleepless nights, excluding him, I really need your help on this whole scenario we have! Please help us out.
