I agree with ipoop and quicy--your symptoms sound like mine did a few months ago and I had thrombosed hemorrhoids + fissure + perianal abscess-turned-fistula. Definitely see your GI. I also took bentyl, which is an anti-spasmodic, and I was given a lidocane ointment to apply topically (it numbs the outside but it does not help what is going on inside). I also demanded pain medication (I take hydrocodone) and told my GI that if he didn't want to prescribe it that's fine, but then I wanted a referral to a pain management specialist. He did end up prescribing me enough to get through the worst of my flare.
