I've asked this many times in many places, including my doctor's office and no one knows. I've pretty much given up on getting on answer but here goes.

Does anyone know why my hemorrhoid goes nuts when I'm losing weight?

I had to put some Thayer's Superhazel on it in the middle of the night because the itching was driving me berserk, then got on the scale at the gym this afternoon. Sure enough, three pounds gone. It's pretty consistent. It's kind of a silver lining situation because when it's driving me crazy, at least I know I'm losing weight. But I've never stopped wondering WHY.
