If you are having a burning feeling I would definitely see the doc. This has been one of my symptoms with past ulcers and I describe it as if someone is taking a hot poker in a very small area. Ulcers never affected my lower GI problems, just upper with increased heartburn, nausea, and vomiting but since you are having a change in patterns along with this burning, I would definitely bring it up.
Take Care and let us know how it goes
