I would be intereste: In anxiety prior to flare. If alternating constipation and diarrhea could b irrtible bowel, a type of functional somatic syndrome. If pain persistent keep using the hemmorroid med, if u can't sit, may be a clot in hemmorroid. It can be hard to resolve without a procedure. You may have fissure in the skin.Treat flare, 2aleve 2x/day w/1gm tylenol (acetaminophen) 6hr. Anxiety 2B considered, tx may help ibs sx.
