you do need to have more fiber in your diet, but you also should take care of the hemorrhoids. you can't fix this on fiber alone. you need to mend the tears in your anus.  seriously.  you need to go see a doctor. they diagnose them all the time and will give you some medicine for it.  if you are embarrassed then see a different doctor than your normal family doctor. try a gastroenterologist or another family doctor.

How have you changed your diet? Lots of fresh fruit: apples, oranges and bananas and prunes are great for your digestive system. Fresh produce is important, yogurt, especially Kefir if you can find it is awesome for digestion. I'd also recommend steel cut oats (like oatmeal but unrefined) and lots of water and herbal tea. Remar is my mama and she's right about seeing a doctor. Are you on medications or are you taking any viatmins or supplements? They can also cause constipation. Hopefully you can get some relief soon, I wish you luck!

It sounds like you might have hemoroids, I know the spelling is wrong, sorry. You need to add more fiber to your diet and buy some Tucks for the pain. It would'nt hurt to see your Dr. about this to make sure this is the problem. Take care. Remar
