Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.
Constipation in Adults
You should discuss your pain with a doctor and should have a careful inspection of your buttock.
The fact that you have pain with your bowel movements might mean that you have a cut in the lining of your anus (an "anal fissure") or an infection near to this opening.
In these cases, constipation symptoms may occur if you put off passing stool (either by your choice or without your conscious control) as a way to avoid pain.
