Hemorrhoids? (sorry)

I've been having a terrible time with constipation and hemorrhoids lately. They've also been bleeding. Dr. told me that wheat and dairy for me can cause this. I've had a ton of wheat the last two weeks. I know, I know. I've learned my lesson and I'm cleaning my diet today. How long can I expect to have this problem, how long should my body clear this out and can I help it in any way? I'm trying to drink lots of fluids and I have RA and my meds cause some dehydration anyway.

thanks, sorry for the subject matter :(

I had bad ones while I was eating a "regular" diet, because of the on and off constipation and diar. Within a week of getting gluten-free and drinking more water (that has really helped!) they have almost gone away. I was told that mine were caused by spending too much time on the potty (no kidding!). Since I don't have to do that as much, I think that might have been something to with it. But I would give it a week and take care to eat salads and other "bulk food" like broccoli, to help with the digestion, and maybe yours will go down in swelling too!!

Mine maybe took a few months to really disappear. Fiber like psyllium can also help with this. Also examine other foods you may eat besides gluten... ie. for me dairy exacerbates these symptoms.

Everyone should eat one large salad a day. Those bags they sell now are so convenient. You have no reason not to do this for yourself. Plus, the calcium in a large spinach salad is great because there's no protein to block the absorption. I add cut grapes, apples, sunflower seeds, and sweet stuff like that to my salads. I make a dressing that I really love:

1/2 cup oj

1/4 cup oil

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

some garlic salt

cracked pepper

1/4 cup honey

Yum.

Drink water throughout the day.

You do not have to be constipated. Good luck. Your "little problems" <_< will go away within a couple of weeks. If not, you should be seen by a dr.
