Bad Gas

I ate some expired kidney beans about 1 month ago and I had the worse gas for about 5 days.  I didn't have diarrhea but the gas was painful.  Whenever I would squeeze my butt it hurt.  I thought maybe I had hemoroids so I got some medication and took it for about two weeks.  It helped but I still have crazy gas and it feels like I have a ton of bricks in my butt but I have been having soft bowel movements.  What is going on?    I hope I don't have an STD or something because I did have unprotected sex with an old friend.  HELP!

An anal fissure, piles, Crohns disease, abscess all can produce pain during motions. Anal pain that does not resolve with the use of over the counter medications within 24-48 hours needs to be investigated by a physician.  Anal pain that lasts more than two weeks can be serious. In a STD there will be pain, bleeding, and/or discharge from anus. Consult a doctor. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!

I went to the doctor yesterday and he blew me off like it was nothing.  Now I did notice that whenever I pleasure myself and have an orgasm that I feel the pain but then it does go away but it's almost like there is a connection there.
