In brief: Something Else

Excruciating pain upon defecation (pooping) is usually not a common symptom of internal hemorrhoids.
Pain upon defecation usually is related to an underlying fissure. The best thing to do is to see a Colon and Rectal Surgeon. Go to www.fascrs.org and look for a board certified colon and rectal surgeon near you. All best!
