The other day I was told about a hardcore gamer that battles video games and beat a hemorrhoid in real life. It’s a buddy’s son who goes to college. He has been a serious hardcore gamer since he was going to high school. The video games he plays the most are MAG, Dark Void, and Dante’s Inferno. Being a gamer had never been an issue in the past, outside of him not keeping up what he was supposed to do to help around the house. That’s typical with teenagers that are always connected to the Internet, gaming, or connecting with people on social networks.
His first year in college hit him hard. He was taking a full schedule of classes and still trying to get in as many hours as he could playing the video games Dark Void, MAG, and Dante’s Inferno. Many proctologists agree that stress can cause external hemorrhoids to develop. I’ve known the young man since he was in high school. He’s always been highly competitive in the world of gaming and creating apps. It is a natural choice he is pursuing a degree in computer science. It must have been the stress finally caused his digestive system to tighten.
The scary moment in his life happened when he was having trouble passing bowel movements normally. The new stress of college and his hardcore video gaming sessions had caused bad constipation (also referred to as costiveness, dyssynergic defecation, and dyschezia) that was becoming painful. Teenagers sometimes will keep things to themselves that they feel are too embarrassing. He never spoke about it to his parents. Constipation and straining during bowel movements is linked to being a major cause of hemorrhoids.
As a past hemorrhoid patient it is scary and shocking to realize you have a painful external hemorrhoid. This university student and hardcore gamer never expected that at his young age hemorrhoids were a medical condition he would get. He was terrified when cleaning himself that he felt a mass outside of his anus and there were traces of blood. This would make anyone’s heart pound quicker. He finally told his parents what he had discovered. After meeting with a physician this hardcore gamer and university student was told he had an external hemorrhoid that had ruptured creating bleeding.
The external bleeding hemorrhoid was caught before it had grown too big, so hemorrhoid surgery was not needed. What his doctor did suggest was using a cold treatment uses controlled extreme cold to kill the hemorrhoid at its base. This is done by freezing the hemorrhoid causing it to die and gently fall off.
For healing pain relief and to stop future bleeding while promoting healing he was told to take a sitz bath on a daily basis until the damaged tissue around the anal cavity was completely healthy. This has been a remedy that has been used for centuries with great results. It is a safe and organic method to provide relief from the conditions of hemorrhoids and hemorrhoid recovery.
One of the most helpful and affordable comfort products suggested by the doctor to this hardcore gamer was to use hemorrhoid cushion or seat when sitting for long periods. This would provide comfortable support, promote good circulation, and prevent hemorrhoids from returning. If he was going to spend hours studying and gaming he needed proper lift and support. I no longer suffer from piles, but still use a hemorrhoid cushion at home, work, and when driving. My buddy’s hardcore gamer son completely healed from his external hemorrhoid and once again enjoying what he loves, learning about computer science and gaming pain free.
He never told his friends about having an external hemorrhoid, but a few of them noticed he was always sitting on a cool looking cushion when gaming that was amazingly comfortable and now they are using them. There is concrete proof that serious hardcore gamers that play Dante’s Inferno, MAG, and Dark Void will get piles. However, using a cushion with great lift and support to sit on will cut the risk of nasty piles developing.
