Thanks for posting your query.
Do you have some mass palpable at anus?
With the available described details, there could be possibility of thrombosed hemorrhoids or anal fissure.
Aggravation of pain due to coughing or sneezing could be due to active wound at anus and persistent injury.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ general surgeon and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for per rectal examination also.
Treatment of anal fissure and hemorrhoids differ and treatment depends on exact diagnosis.
Meanwhile, you should take plenty of water along with laxative containing isapgula and lactitol. Laxative helps in relieving constipation and cure of local wound.
You should also apply lignocaine ointment along with diltiazem.
You should also perform hot sitz bath; put lukewarm water in a tub and sit in it for 15-20 minutes twice in a day. This helps in relaxation of anal sphincters.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Welcome to HCM

The upper abdominal pain is most likely an epigastric pain which is most commonly due to acid peptic disease most often only caused by fatty and junk foods and spicy contents.

The rectal pain you are having is due to hemorrhoids which might develop bleeding after some enlargement or rupture of hemorrhoids. you can use simple pain killers like diclofenic sodium along with analgesic enema available with the name tonocane gel
