  • I guess I would suggest visiting the Dr. before taking anything on your own and not knowing what the pain is being caused by.

  • I agree. I would see the doctor. Would you by chance have any hemroids? They are painful when inflammed and tend to feel about like that when having a bowel movement.

  • I agree, talk to your doctor. If you want to try something, increase more fiber in your diet, they make several delicious cereals you can eat that help regulate your system. You can try the Activia yogurt, sometimes drinking coffee helps too, and definitely lots of water. It is possible that you may have an inflamed hemorrhoid and that is very painful. You can use some over-the-counter ointment for it like preparation H. They make a good one that also helps with the itching and irritation. If it is a hemorrhoid too, try sitting in a warm bath and that also helps alleviate the discomfort. But yes, if it's been going on for a while, talk to your doctor.
