I also have constipation issues and have been using a laxative and a stool softener. After a have bowel movement the hemorrhoid sticks out a little but very painful. I also have slight bleeding but quickly goes away. I also have been using Tramadol for pain.The pain goes away early afternoon and then I'm fine for the rest of the day. I have had the problem for about a month and a half. No per-rectal exam or ano-protoscopy done. I do have kidney problems but nothing else.

Brief Answer:
As detailed below.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your feedback.
Constipation is one of the most important cause of some anal problems like Hemorrhoids and fissure-in-ano.
Since there is a history of pain that goes away by afternoon, pain after bowel movement and slight bleeding indicate this to be fissure-in-ano.
Hemorrhoids are not painful at all unless strangulated which in itself is an emergency, hence less like or may be accompanying.
I would advise you the following:
Sitz bath in a tub with warm water before and after passing bowel movement.
Continue the stool softener and/or laxative whichever suits you to have soft and smooth bowel movement.
Anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen if it suits you.
Clinical evaluation, actual examination and per-rectal digital examination and Ano-proctoscopy if the pain allows gives the most proper diagnosis and helps for further management.
Avoidance of the foods and beverages that you might have noticed to cause constipation, instigate or enhance the problems.
Stress and anxiety if present can be a contributory factor and hence needs a control if necessary.
Antibiotic, metronidazole may be required if there is an evidence of an infection locally and will be prescribed as required by your Doctor, preferably a General Surgeon.

I hope this answer help you.
