Stomach Pain After Bowel Movements

Earlier this summer, I started to have some stomach pain after a bowel movement. It feels like it is mostly in the large intestine. In addition, I have had a burning feeling in my stomach, that I have assumed was an ulcer. It has progressed over the whole summer. What happens is after a bowel movement, I can feel sore in the stomach for basically the whole day.

Last month, I saw my doctor. I was wondering if I had an ulcer and he gave me some type of acid inhibitor. The prescription has helped with the ulcer symptoms, but not with the pain after a movement. He ran a blood test and an ultrasound and they revealed nothing. He has sent me to a specialist, but I will not be able to get into until March.

I have googled the heck out of this issue and cannot find anything. The only thing I can thing of is that the feces is acidic and is burning the intestines during the movement. Either that, or there is some burning or scaring in the intestine that is being irritated by the movement. However, it appears that the pain does move, so I do not think that is the issue.

Any help in identifying this? Does the acidic problem make sense?
