Hi, I'm a 34 year old healthy female. This is my first bout with Hemorrhoids. They started about 4 days ago. At the same time I started to feel the hemorrhoids, I noticed the lymph nodes in my pelvic region become tender and swollen to the touch. I have no indication of infection, no fever or anything strange leaking out. So I'm a little nervous about having both these issues at the same time. I just want to know if this is a normal side affect to hemorrhoids? Please advice. Thank you.
