The stools are already loose and have been for a few months, so I know constipation is not the problem.
Is how the pain presents any indication of the cause? Sometimes it feels like it's way up by the tailbone and shoots down. Other times I just feel a little twinge right by the side of the anus. I did notice tonight that I also got a couple twinges of nerve pains in my legs around the same time, although I have no clue if that's related. The first time it happened, I had a bowel movement shortly after, but I didn't feel any irritation with that.
