Brief Answer:
What's your temperatures? Stools? And urination?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this pain that you have reported. This might be suggestive of a digestive of kidney problem. If the temperature is more than 99.5, then there is a systemic infection going on that will need to be investigated and managed with antibiotics.

For the pains, I suggests that you replace motrin with Tylenol: 1000mg every 8hours. Motrin can cause some other stomach problems and we must avoid getting there. Also, comment about the frequency and nature of your stools as well as the duration of these symptoms.

I hope to hear from you and promise working more with you to establish the cause and propose a management plan aimed at addressing your worries.

I have a skin tag (or so I think that is what it is) with a white tip around my anus . I have had this for some time with no discomfort so I never paid attention to it. I am not sure how long the tip has been white or if it always was. It bleeds sometimes when I wipe but the blood is not in the stool. I have now had very bad constipation , stomach pains, and back pain for 2 weeks and I am afraid this has something to do with it.
