Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually from what you are describing it sounds like that you could have developed a anal fissure, which is a condition in which there is a small tear in the anus which can cause this sort of pain. This would be diagnosed on a simple rectal examination and a proctoscopy. Once diagnosed it can be treated with OTC lidocaine gel which can be applied on the area, OTC hemorrhoidal gel can also be helpful in this situation.

At the same time the diarrhea which you are experiencing can be due to a condition like viral gastroenteritis which can cause painful cramps and also the watery appearance of the stool. This would usually settle down over 7-10 days and if there is blood or mucus in the stool then it would be a bacterial infection in which case it would treated with antibiotics. In the meantime using OTC imodium would be helpful along OTC dramamine and OTC ibuprofen.

I would suggest that you start using these therapies and if there is blood or mucus in the stool or the problem worsens in the next 2-3 days then you should visit your doctor.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
