unknown bowel problem keeps getting worse

I am a male 26 and have a problem they cant seem to find out what it is, lll try to explain, I am having trouble emptying stool but im not constipated, now for the last month and a half every time i pass a stool most still comes out but the last part gets stuck down at the end where it isnt supposed to be like from the rectum to the end of the anal canal its getting worse and is unconfortable. I treid laxatives and eating lots of fiber nothing would work. I been having 3 or 4 bowels a day and see blood sometimes, in the morning i have loose watery stool and at night they are hard and dry. About 5 months ago had severe stomach aches with bloody diarria. I gone to a GI had a colonoscopy a blood test, stool test, x ray and everything came up negative so far then I went back to the docter and they said it is a form of constipation and they gave me Linzess used to help ibs and chronic constipation, it is only reducing bowels but it still wont empty were it is stuck. I taken it about a week and stopped the last couple days, they said If it doesnt work they have to check the muscles and nerves.
Has anyone had this before? What to do? I mean I know things could be worse but its just really unconfortable. Is there any way to mask this?

You may have to have the test called an Anorectal Manometry, to test the sphincter muscles, & muscles inside. You may have a partial prolapse. See a colorectal surgeon. There are many tests that can be done, such as a proctogram. If there's bad pain, you may even have a stricture or narrowing in your intestines. Don't Strain to try & push the rest out as it will only worsen the problem. Something is not definitely not right!
