Possible anal fissur: It sounds like you may have an anal fissure. This is a tear of the mucosa in the anal canal. It typically causes pain during the passage of stool and possibly some afterward. Have you had an exam to chack the anal area? Drink Plenty of fluids and take in a high fiber diet. See your doctor to have this checked.
