the anal tingling could be from the spicy foods...which would be noticed especially if that area is a bit irritated or inflamed.
You reallllllllllllly should call the doc and ask for some rectal meds....even suppositories of Salofalk / mesalazine if not retention enemas.
The loose stool could be from foods (spicy foods). You'll always see some food particles because not all foods are able to be digested. That's he purpose of some fibre foods....add bulk, etc.
How many imodium are you taking a day?
You could consider to add a fiber supplement to help bulk up the stool a bit more.
Oh, you could benefit by using zinc cream on the outer part of the anus...if you have any discomfort/irritation there.
