I was diagnosed with hemorrhoids several years ago, and since then I have noticed a worsening of my symptoms after eating things such as flavored snack chips (Dorito's) and meals containing broth made from bouillon cubes. I suspect that MSG is causing the increased swelling, itchiness, and pain. I exercise regularly, eat a high fiber diet, rarely have constipation, and am otherwise not a likely candidate for hemorrhoids. I don't know if it's related, but the hemorrhoids began around the time when I had taken some antibiotics and also around the time I started eating more Asian foods. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to completely get rid of this problem ever since.

When I was unaware of MSG and at my worst, healthwise, I was a candidate for hemorrhoid surgery at 45. That was years ago, and as soon as I avoided MSG vigilantly, I no longer had a problem.
