In brief: Constipation?
Stools that are painful are usually rooted in constipation.
I would encourage stool softeners and fluids. Hard or large stools can cause fissures or tearing of the anus and be very painful. Dehydration a low fiber diet and even certain medications or supplements can contribute. If they continue, you should be seen by your family physician for further evaluation and management.

In brief: Stool hurt to come
It can be from several causes.
First of all it may be from combination of low fiber and not drinking enough fluids.It can be due to certain medications over the counter or presceiption.Some medical conditions like low acting thyroid can cause that. To correct this you should increse fiber, drink more fluids, and use stool sftners like docusate sodium, eat three meals a day, eat more fruits&vegies.
