Living with hemorrhoids can be an extremely painful and embarrassing problem. You
cannot sit nor walk comfortably making it very difficult to work. You cannot tell
your coworkers about the problem as they might think of you differently.
The workplace might be the last thing you want to be when you have swollen hemorrhoids.
Not to mention the embarrassment if colleagues find out about your condition, focusing
on the work and trying to be productive can be challenging if your behind is painful
Hemorrhoid Relief For Office Workers
If your day job requires you to sit through the eight hour shift, you have the problem
of not being able to move from a position to another. With hemorrhoids, it is extremely
difficult not to be able to stand up or adjust to a position that would relieve pain
in your butt.
• Make sure that you allow yourself to stand once in a while and walk around whenever
you get a break. Physical activities help improve blood circulation that can help
relieve the pain, and also take away the pressure from the rectum.
• It would also help to juggle the pressure from one area to another and get temporary
relief for the affected areas. Try to do this as frequently as possible. Your coworkers
might observe that you are being fidgety than usual so you need to come up with a
nice excuse in this case.
• A padded seat would also help alleviate the pain of your swollen hemorrhoids. Just
make sure that ventilation is available. Heat might worsen the swelling and the pain.
• On the other hand, if you do a lot of standing such when a meeting requires you
to do a presentation, the gravity effect could also be disastrous to your condition
and might exacerbate the swelling and the pain. Make sure that you get enough time
to sit down and rest your ailing bottom in between presentations.
Discreet Treatments Do The Trick
Being discreet, using medications that can be easily hidden, or easily applied while
in the workplace, could be an answer to relieving pain while still being able to
report to work.
There are creams and tucks that come in small packages and can be discreetly hidden
in your purse or brief case, or stored in your drawer. Apply these before starting
on with your task for the day and re-applying during breaks or when you go to the
toilet. This should be able to pull you through the whole shift without spilling
your secrets to colleagues.
Take Time Off
If even with the analgesics and creams, you still do not find relief with your hemorrhoids,
it would be best to take a few days off and deal with the problem squarely. Seek
treatment. Home remedies and clinical interventions are the best ways to rid of the
problems associated with hemorrhoids for good. This would be the best way to finally
put yourself back on track and become the productive worker that you used to be,
before hemorrhoids set in.
