Anal Fissure: A Common Cause of Anal Pain
An anal fissure is a small tear or crack in the lining of the anus. If you experience severe pain or bright red bleeding during or after bowel movements, you may have an anal fissure. Anal fissures happen due to certain occurrences, such as childbirth or constipation, or due to some medical conditions.

Anal fissures can also occur if the anal sphincter (the muscle that controls the anal opening) is too tight to pass stools. The pain is a sharp knifelike pain that returns during the times when the anal opening is irritated. It can be very painful during bowel movements especially if you get constipated or dehydrated.
