As you have been diagnosed with hemorrhoids and it can produce all the symptoms that you have described, it's not necessary to have all the set of symptoms, piles can cause bleeding an anal irritation even without obvious pain. It seems like an episodic problem and you can manage it conservatively by using local anesthetics, oral pain meds, sitz bath and stool softener to avoid further irritation and speed up recovery. Many times symptoms goes away with these measures, but if it does not, then you will have to see your doctor for proctoscopy and anal examination to rule out the causes like anal fissures and prostatitis which can present in similar ways.
