    Rectal Soreness. Can someone please give me answer

    About 3 months ago, I started taking green tea pills with a very high amount of caffeine. About 2 weeks later, I began to develop hemorrhoid-like symptoms. I had an occasionally itchy anus, a bit of blood on the toilet paper, and some mild rectal pain. That eventually went away after a few weeks. However, the mild rectal pain has persisted. It like a dull soreness approximately 4 inches inside my anus. It is not a constant pain. Laying down or prolonged sitting seems to make it occur more, while walking and standing usually makes it go away.

    So, it's just the dull soreness pain that comes and goes now. No bleeding and very rarely a slight itch.

    If anyone has any idea of what could be causing this please let me know. I am relatively young (early 20s) and I am concerned this is more than hemorrhoids.
