Low fiber diet and hard stool, *mild* stinging after passing a stool, &stress&anxiety do all those things sound like they could cause a hemorrhoid?
Yes. See your doctor: Your doctor will give you medication to clean out your intestine. Then you'll take a bulk laxative for at least 6 months to have peanut-butter consistency stools at least every other day. Sit on the toilet nightly for 15 minutes, 15 minutes after dinner. Chronic constipation causes anal fissures, hemorrhoids & stretches the walls of the colon, causing diverticulosis & diverticulitis later. ...Read more

No need to put any ointment. ...Read more

Other conditions which can also cause pain include anal fissures. These are small tears in the anal region which can cause pain with bowel movements. It may be worthwhile for you to be seen by your primary care physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can stress keep or inflame hemorrhoids? I've drank a lot of water, ate/drank fiber and whatnot. Not nearly as painful but still has slight pain.
No: Stress cannot directly affect hemorrhoid tissue. It can if the stress alters your oral intake and therefore your bowel consistency or habit. Be careful about blaming hemorrhoids for pain because that is unusual and often is something else like a fissure. An external hemorrhoid with a blood clot (thrombosis) can hurt but that is easy to diagnose as it is a painful lump ...Read more
