Doctor: Dr. Greg, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

Rectal/anal pain that worsens with bowel movements is usually caused by external hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids occur when the blood vessels in the anus become engorged with blood and inflamed. Sitting on the toilet for long periods of time, and constipation can cause hemorrhoids.

A second potential cause of anal/rectal pain is an anal fissure. This is a small tear in the lining of the anus, which can occur secondary to constipation, prolonged sitting, and trauma, prolonged diarrhea, and various inflammatory conditions.

There are other rare disorders, that can also cause pain in this region (i.e. proctitis, anal fistulas, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, etc)

My recommendation is for you to visit a local urgent care tomorrow, to be examined. Once a diagnosis has been determined, the treatment plan can be prescribed. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

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.
