What causes hard stools with blood stains?

For about 2 yrs i had stomach upsets due to fullness.Doctor said it s gastric problem and gave some tablets which helped me.But now since 3 months i m getting hard stools sometimes with blood stains and severe pain during defecation and after also.I actually feel that there is something sharp or prickly internally on the right side of anal region. Doctor suggested tab ORNI 500 and FABOLITE POWDER, this also helped me. But it reoccurs after 10 days , and same tablet helps me, is it safe to use ORNI 500 so often.Actually what exactly my problem is i want to know.
