Pain During And After Bowel movement

I have checked around for information, and while there are similar instances, I have not seen anything regarding to what has happened recently to me.

Starting three days ago, I felt slight pains in my rectum. Nothing too overbearing, but still enough to be uncomfortable. Now for the past two days, when I have a bowel movement, it causes great discomfort and mild pain inside the anus. As I said before, I saw information that was close to what I have experienced, but in others' cases, they all have had blood in their stools. I have not seen anything in mine. No traces, nothing. I don't have to go frequenty, and the stool is normal as it has always been. But there is still a pain.

My brother had Ulcerative Colitis and had to have his colon removed. Naturally, I consulted him before anything. He is younger than me by 4 years. He said when he first started getting ill, he had to go frequently. Multiple times a day. He also had very bad stomach cramps. I do not feel the need to go alot, and I do not have any cramps or abdominal pains.

Thanks in advance for any help that is provided.

So, no blood, no cramps. Just a sore bum for the past few days. Am I overreacting?

similar feelings
im 20 years of age. and iv been feeling similar feeling after a bm, feels as tho the cramping is on the left ish side below my belly button. sittin makes me very uncomfortable. specally around people. i find my self allways goin to the bathroom to push the rest out but there is nothing to push. i have plenty of fiber and i am kindof a soda drinker. i have been drinking alot of water with zingers in them. thos instant tea packets. but this feelin has been going on for a wyle now. for the most part i just man up and deal with it. but when it comes to the fact that i am avoiding my family and friend because of this is very annoying. at times i want to punch my self in the belly just over frustration, does get very annoying. iv been thinking of trying a colon cleaner, hopefully that helps. was thinking of bowtrol, any ideas?
