Can anybody tell me what I could have? I have severe pains that I have to take pain pills for at least twice a week. The pain starts from the front and goes through all the way through to my rectum. The pain is mostly in the front, like severe cramping but I also have a dull aching consistant pain deep in my rectum to the outside and have a little bleeding when I have a bowel movement. Does anyone else have this problem? The doctors just brush me off and say to change my eating habits.

  • Your pain sounds a lot like Proctalgia Fugax except for the bleeding. I've had this as long as I can remember and it took years, into my mid 30's before I was diagnosed with this and finally had a name for it. I too was brushed off. My symptoms are a rectal cramping, perhaps pelvic floor cramping, that comes after a bowel movement or loss of erection, primarily. Something to do with the evacuation of the rectum and a spastic muscle that cramps a lot like a leg cramp that comes on slowly and get very bad, sometimes to the point of fainting while sitting on the toilet, and then goes away sometimes only to come right back, however, I do not feel this pain in the front region of my pelvic, only in the rectum or pelvic floor. Also I can be wake from my sleep from one of my three nightly hormone surges that cause me to have involuntary erections each night, after the erection subsides; something to do with the tie in the muscles of the pelvic floor and rectum. I'm a male that has had no rectal issues, or abuse, and have had this for all my life. My father gets it as well. Remedies: i was told by a doctor that read a paragraph from a book, not much can be done for it but to try external and internal message. The only thing I have found to help reduce the onset of this is to eat more fiber. I take fiber pills, psyllium husk , and I hold off on having sex or even hold off having a bowl movement until I’m sure I’ve really got to go, no encouraging it. If my colon is full, or partly full, then I have no problems, and if I can get it to fill by eating or drinking a lot rapidly to get my digestive tract to kick in and move stool down towards my rectum it will stop the pain very fast; even a gas bubble helps for a short time… anything to add pressure internally, but once the pressure is released the pain will return unless it has subsided completely, much like a leg cramp. Vicodin or other strong pain and muscle relaxant help too but are slow in acting and I sometimes don’t know if it just left or the pill helped. Fiber helps keep my digestive tract more regular and stool moving at a more constant rate for me. I use to normally have a bowl movement once every 3 or so days, but never felt constipated, just slow tract as far as I was concerned. If I keep up on my fiber, then I go once every 1.5 days or so and that seems to keep more regular pressure internally and less cramps. Hope that helps. RDR:o

  • Thank you so much for your response. It helped alot that somebody else has this problem and that I'm not just nuts! My doctor also told me to take fiber which I have been for over a week and I havent been in pain but I don't know if it is from the fiber or just that I am having a good week because the fiber is not helping me have bowel movements so I don't know what it is doing for me, I just know that it is good for the system so I'm continueing to take it. Again, thanks for the response, this isn't something you can just talk to people about and I felt like I was the only one having this weird problem.

  • hi- i am a woman and my mother and i both have this. i finally got a medication that helps- clinidium- it works fairly quickly and i've noticed it helps if i sit on the toilet till the pill kicks in. sometimes a very hot washcloth pressed from the outside helps too. also i use my labor breathing- which neither of you will be familiar with! LOL! BUT you can certiainly do it- calm deep breaths in, blow out through your mouth- it does help! good luck. i've never noticed that food helps but i do know that it was much worse when i had a period and during the delivery of one of my 3 kids because she was turned backwards. i truly think it is a physical trigger- like a uterine cramp, or diarrhea, or anything like that.good luck!

  • Thank God! Somebody else has these symptoms! I'm sorry, I don't want anyone to experience pain, but I have felt like I am crazy since I was in my 20's. I have had these cramps in my rectum, and they feel like they come from my vagina,or PC muscle is involved. I sometimes get them while driving, to the point I need to pull over. Kegel exercises sometimes help, sometimes not, as well as "labor" breathing (although I've never experienced childbirth, I often use it). I have fibromyalgia and diabetes, and with those come a lot of G.I. problems, but this is the first time I have ever found anyone with these same types of cramps that I have. My sister gets them, also, and she has Crohn's disease. They seem to strike during or right after my period the most, also. I will increase my fiber; I just had an attack today, passed a little stool, which stopped it. Thanks so much for posting this!!!

  • It sounds like you may have an impacted colon. Have you performed any type of colon cleansing? If you haven't then you might want to give that a try, you'll be surprised what types of waste can accumulate inside your colon throughout the years. I do a cleanse every 3 months or so and I've never felt so younger in my life, not to mention all the weight I lost.Here's an article you might find helpful:http://www.colon-cleanse-constipation.com/colon-pain.html

  • I'm a 42 yr old male. My problem started 2 mo ago with progressively worse rectal burning, some blood on a tissue, and constant pain and cramping that was horrific. I couldn't sit or hardly walk. I couldn't sleep well and was awakened with sudden sharp jolts of pain. Of course, going BM was terrible to the point of being afraid. Thinking my fear might be contributing to the cramping, I did agressive leg stretches that actually solved the cramping pain. I changed my diet to oatmeal (AM) and lots of veggies later with a light supper. I tried anti yeast/bacterial creams, diaper rash ointment, Prep H, etc. Finally went to the Dr. No sign of hemeroids, but I did have what turns out to be infected internal fissures. Stool sample was negative for parasites (pin worms). First I was put on a common female anti yeast product (Fluconazol)-- didn't work. Burning became intense. Next was put on a strong antibiotic (Levaquin). Thank God, the internal pain greatly diminished. But subsequent BM's still felt like something tearing. I went to a GI specialist who almost acted like I "feeling things" and said to keep eating well, that the antibiotic obviously knocked out some infection, so keep the stool soft with proper diet, etc. Fearing a reinfection of a fissue that couldn't totally heal, and not wanting to insert an over-the-counter antibiotic cream, I decided to try a salt enema solution -- same as if I had a cut on my arm and wanted to keep the germs out. I've noticed improvement. The salt has a brief sharp burn, but I know whatever is torn is getting washed, cleansed and sanitized. (It's the feces getting into a cut that causes the burning). The rest of my day is so much better. Trusting this approach will allow it to heal completely... By the way, I think the problem started with popcorn (ate too much) hulls causing cuts in the rectum area that became infected. No popcorn next year!! JS

  • I found this thread after searching the NHS site for any info on rectal problems. So much for the National Health Service! Just wanted to get a few thoughts from anyone who might've had similar issues; quite a few folk sound like they have symptoms i've been experiencing but am becoming increasingly nervous that this is a lot worse than i thought. In a nutshell, i'm a 33-year-old male, not too healthy at all, now ex-smoker (but was inclined to smoke like a chimney when drinking), drinker (although that's gone out the window too), with an incredibly bad diet, which, over the last six or seven months has been improving but is by no means great. Last year i started having these pretty awful pains in the back passage which left everything feeling very tender, and which soon passed into something quite a bit more ominous, sort of like a nervous, slightly sharper pain further up in the right hand side of the rectum, or perhaps colon. I'm not entirely sure of exactly where it was, but it was definitely colo-rectal. Cutting out coffee (which i used to guzzle daily) seemed to stop that dead in it's tracks, but i have to confess i went back on the wine fairly hard after december. In the last three months i've seen a doctor and a specialist who had a cursory snoop around and told me that 'everything was as best as it could be', that he had noted a couple of small haemorroids, and that upping my dietary fibre, fruit and vegetable intake would help things out. Great, but having taken all of this on board, sticking to soup most days for lunch (with the occasional chocolate!) and hot chocolate in the evenings, this seems to be getting worse.I can't exercise with work hours, so i have to do this strictly by diet, or alternatively go back to the doc and do some shouting, which i've found tends to have very little effect anyway. I've had the berium procedures in both ends to no avail, although that was some years ago. The pain is now pretty constant, in the lower right and sometimes upper right rectal area. I was really hoping for just internal haemorroids - but i've read now that they are meant to be painless! Can anyone confirm this from experience? The other option i was considering was a fissure, but the specialist said that if i had a fissure, i would've hit the roof the second he laid hands on me. Can fissures occur further back in the rectum, or is it only in the lower rectal area that they occur?Other than this, i've noticed the pain usually quietens down when i've woken up, until i head to the toilet, usually 9.45 or so, when it starts up again. Bowel movements are definitely setting it off. I drink a bit of water during the day, but not a lot, and spend anything between 8 and 9 hours in the chair five days a week. Coudl this sedentary work be making things worse? One other thing i seem to be getting over the last year is sharp cramps in my legs and feet; my legs are quite chubby in the thigh. Could poor blood flow be adding to all of this? Is exercise possibly my only way out of this situation? Phew - that's about it, really; i'd love some thoughts or advice from anyone who thinks they've got or had similar symptoms! I don't want to have to go back to the doctor if he's just going to tell me to eat more bran again, but i can't help feeling he might've missed something. Without the real telltale symptoms of a far more serious condition though, i wonder if i'm making a mountain out of a molehill!Thanks folks!

  • For about the past 3 months, or maybe even more, I've been having these pains in my bowel, intestines, appendix and stomach, and also some twitching in my colon. At the beginning of March/end of February, I got put on Movicol because I was constipated at the time. This worked, but after about 5 weeks I stopped taking it as it was causing me to have diarreah and it brought my pains back worse which are still here today. 4 days after stopping taking it, I'm back to being constipated although I can get some stool out but it just turns out to be really dark, and small pea-shaped, sometimes dry also. I get a lot of rumbling going on everywhere below, eg. lower middle abdomen, appendix and intestine. I started a Gillian McKeith diet with which I gave up with 2 weeks later as this was when my problems began to occur. At first I was constipated, and at one point I managed to sit on the toilet for 35 minutes. I'm now always tired, I have no energy, I'm pale, I feel sick everyday at some point, and my joints sometimes hurt. I have some references as to what this could be; Diverticulitis, IBS, IBD or even stomach or colon cancer. I really hope it's nothing serious as one of my fears is surgery.. If someone could help me decide what it could be, then that would be really great. Thank you.

  • I was looking for something on the net about the pain I have and I found it here! I experience that bad pain mainly at night, sometimes it can be a month or so between the time I have it. It wakes me up out of a deep sleep. The only things that help are a warm bath or sitting on the toilet (I do the labour breathing also) taking some asprin until the pain passes. I have seen a few doctors and no one can tell me what it is.

  • Hmm how can a doctor tell you anything without asking you to go and get colonoscopy, ct scan, blood tests done etc. before coming to a conclusion oh change your eating habits, its your life on the line and not the doctor(s).So please demand for colonoscopy if you are constantly getting bleeding, chronic pain despite introducing good eating habits eg high fibre.P.S Don't let the doctor brush you off, "Oh ya you are alright just change this or that" Always ask for proper diagnosis eg scans,blood tests,endoscopy if it is gastro related eg bowels,stomach etc. IF your doctor don't listen and your conccerns MAKE sure always get second opinion from other doctor this is the rule of thumb, its your life that is at risk.CheersSunny

  • This anal/pelvic pain can be relieved through sitting directly on the area which hurts. Placing direct pressure like that is like massaging the area.I've noticed too, that mine worsened when my thyroid medication was too low. Since it is being corrected, I have less problems.

  • I have had this for years and it is horrible. Mostly, the "attacks" come at night while I am in a deep sleep, but I can get them during the day, as well. Driving or riding for long periods can bring it on, as well. I notice that I am real tired before and after the "attack", but I don't know if the tired feeling is caused by or causes it. I have tried all kinds of meds, but like some of you, I don't know if the attack just ended or the meds helped it end. The attack can be from 3 minutes to an hour. I can't find a food relationship and the doctors have checked me from head to toe (and everywhere in between - believe me). They can't find anything wrong. The only thing that helps is a scalding hot bath - just about an inch or two or scolding hot water in the tub. That relieves it quickly, but I suspect I am just deadening the nerve endings. It does work, though. Of course, that is not always handy. The attacks can come a couple of days straight or not happen for a couple of months. I rate the pain each time from 1 (mild) to 10 (death). Yes, I am exaggerating, but a rating of 9 makes me pass out. They vary on the scale. After over 20 years of this (I am now 42), I have given up on finding the answer. It is frustrating. If I get through a month without one, I consider it a great month. July is already a bust, since I had one last night.

  • Hello everyone, I have this very same pain, It starts when I start my period and worsens throughout my period, to the point where I cant even stand up correctly. The Doctor does the same thing to me and just brushes me off and tells me that it's my hormone level. Is there a name for this. I can't tell if it is my Colon or if it is my Pelvic...Someone please help.

  • Wow, all this time, knowing I couldn't be the only one with this issue and I finally see there are others. I am a 42 year old male in good health otherwise, I hve this pain that, not trying to gross anyone out, but If I could insert my finger in my own rectum and draw a line to the top of the pelvic bone It would intersect with the epicenter of the pain. Holy cow!! I can not remember when I first recall it happening, but I am pretty sure I was in my twenty-somethings. Anyway, it does not seem to trigger with any real rhymn or reason, it just occurs. I thought perhaps it was triggered when I ate greasy foods, but I now believe that it is not the only trigger but perhaps is a contributory issue. I can be fine one minute and then, like way off in the distance, I feel the pain and it seems to be very specific as it is in the exact same place since it started. The pain begins to increase very rapid to the point I start pacing all around the room, in a sort of high stepping type walk, I know I look like a fool, then I end up either going and sitting on the toilet and rock or on occassion, I am hunched up on the floor rocking until it begins to subside. Sometimes it lasts only a couple of minutes but will come back and other times it comes on and will linger for about 15 to 20 minutes and when it goes away, I feel like I just ran a marathon, I am absolutely worn out. I had a colonoscopy two years ago and the doctor went in 32cm and said that was the cleanest and best looking colon he's seen in years, of course this Doctor was use to seeing older people, but he said no hemmoroids or fissures and healthy colon. He thought perhaps it was a bacteria that can get into the rectal area and the best advice he had was sitz baths and good hygiene. I am a very clean guy and so I really didn't think his diagnosis was correct, sitz baths really don't work, though applying and releasing pressure does. Some of you have described it as a cramp on the floor of the pelvis and perhaps that is it. I know sitting everyday in an office for several ours a day and not eating a well balanced diet can affect how often the condition occurs. Exercise and eating a lot of foods rich in natural fiber can have a very good effect in resolving lots of issues in out bodies. Anyway enough babbling, thanks to those who previously responded to this issue, you really help me out knowing that there may be ways to deal with this issue.

  • Am 49 year old female and have have these colon spasms since my early 20's. I am so sorry your dr's are being so cruel and uneducated, time to find a new dr. There are various muslcle relaxer's out there just for this. It does sound like some of you are worse than others. When I became having trouble, they were still using liquid donatol. It worked wonders because it worked FAST!!! No one knows the pain if they haven't been there and YES, I did pass out. I no longer have trouble but eating a number of small meals a day...grazing, you can't allow your stomach to actually get empty. In the beginning I was up at 2am eating cereal .... and high fiber is key as well as attempting to keep your stress level down. Good luck!

  • Hi,I am trying to find a common ground between all posts and my condition. I'm not sure I have found one, but I suspect that this might be caused by sexual activity.I came to this conclusion since :1. Most described cases in this post are in the sexual active age2. Although I'm not 100% sure about all episodes I had, I think most occurred some time after masturbation or sex3. It might be a combination of having too much to eat at that day4. Most of the cases happen at night time5. Even if sexual acts where not conducted, it is known that men commonly have involuntary erections, both during nighttime and day.Does this make any sense to you guys ?

  • I've been experiencing this type of pain for the past 3 months or so - sometimes once a week, other times every few days. What I am experiencing sounds like what's written above, but unlike others who say that they sit directly on the area to relieve the pain, I cannot. During these attacks, I have to sit to the side - on one cheek only, if you will. If I attempt to sit normally, I would hit the ceiling the pain is so severe! Does anyone else have this, where sitting in a normal fashion is totally impossible during an attack? At times, I feel like I should have a bowel movement during an attack, but to sit on the toilet and try to pass anything, hurts beyond belief. I am going to see my doctor this week - what she says will be very interesting....

  • I just signed up for an account here and this is my first post. I just wanted to say that this kind of think has happened to me periodically over the course of the last 15 years. I'm 37 now.The worst episode i can remember was earlier this year. I happened after my wife and I "made sexy time". I actually told my mom about it and we laffed about it cuz I said I "musta pulled my taint". Anyway, she said that i probably just had a muscle spasm in my rectum.This was the first time it had happened after an orgasm. Usually it occurs after a bowel movement.But last night it woke me out of a dead sleep. I initially thought I need to have a bowel movement, but once I sat down I thought that I may actually vomit.Now, the last time I had this (after the ******m), my wife and I got cleaned up very quickly and went to the store. While at the store, I told her that I felt like I was going to pass out. She said I looked white as a ghost. So I walked out the car, barely making it btw, and sat down. It gradually went away, and that's when we then went to my mom's house to pick up the kids.So back to last night, I thought maybe I was going to vomit. Since I didn't actually have to have a bowel movement, I stood up to maybe vomit. But then it dawned on me that I didn't need vomit, but instead was going to faint. I made it back to the bedroom and fell on to the bed. By now, my rectum was really hurting me bad. And when this happens, there isn't anything I can do to make it stop. It's a constant, throbbing, piercing type pain from deep withing my colon. It's HORRIBLE!!I couldn't take it anymore and for some reason felt the need to throw myself on the floor (as if that would help... but at least I'd have more room to writhe in pain). And as I'm lying there I started to profusely sweat. After a couple of minutes, I was drenched in sweat and felt as though I was losing it. I was for sure going to faint.Not knowing just what was wrong (Because until today, I had never heard of Proctalgia Fugax), I laid there thinking the worst. I thought, "I'm dying. I don't know how or why this is happening, but I'm surely dying and I can't believe it." I also laid there and thought "What am I going to do? My wife is away on business until Weds, and my young boys are sound asleep. They're gonna wake up in the morning and find me on the floor dead. This can't happen! I've got to get up! I need to call someone, but who? I'll call my mom and make her come out. Then maybe I'll have to call an ambulance".So I got the will to stand up and make it to the door. I needed to go downstairs to get my cell phone. So I started down the stairs and started to lose it. I got to the bottom, turned the corner towards the dining room and thought, "this is it... what about my boys?" and that's all I remember.I for sure fainted. I'm not sure how long I was out, but when I came to I laid there for a minute, still drenched in sweat, and tried to assess the situation. I HAD to get to my phone. So I worked up enough energy to drag myself to the kitchen counter, and got my phone.I laid there for a minute and thought about what I should do and who I should call. A neighbor? My wife? My mom? My sister? I felt calling my wife would only upset her since she was 900 miles away and couldn't do anything but worry. My sister lives an hour away, but is a nurse. But she's sound asleep too. Maybe my doctor's cell? He's probably asleep too. So I decided to call my mom. Mind you it was 12:30am and mom was sound asleep.So I called and it of course rang and rang. I called back about 10 times, including her cell, and got nothing. By now i was starting to kinda come to my senses a little bit and decided to try and get it. So then I got up, went into the kitchen to get some water, grabbed my land line phone, and went back up to bed.I laid there for a few minutes thinking, and noticed my pain was starting to go away. Next thing I knew, it was 7AM and my alarm was going off....My sister told my mom to have me research VasoVagal, since she has had some problems with this. But the only info I've found basically describes this as just pure fainting.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasovagal_syncopeI came across a site that referred to anal pain as maybe being Proctalgia Fugax. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proctalgia_fugaxAfter reading that, I am convinced this is exactly what I have.Then my search led me to this post. After reading thru some of these, I know this what I have, and I feel so relieved that it's not serious!!I guess my only concern was why I fainted? This wasn't something that was a result of standing up too fast or anything like that. It came on gradually until it could not be prevented. The only thing I can think of, is that the pain makes me nauseous, and therefore caused me to faint.I have an appt with my Doctor a week from today. Now I'm wondering if I should go or cancel it? I know what it is, so why bother going? I know that's stupid, but is it? I mean, there is no cure. There are no other symptoms that would indicated I'm having an addl problem. So I'm not sure what I should do. I'll probl just go just to be safe. My Dr. is a genious, and I'm curious to hear his take on it.Thanks all!j

  • Well, now that I know what it is, I'm gonna try sitting in a hot bath tub next time. When I have an attack, NOTHING I do relieves the pain. I have to just ride it out. And it's such a weird pain, that it makes me nauseous I guess. I can usually tolerate pain pretty well, and have never had an issue with fainting or anything like that. But THIS pain is so weird and relentless that I guess it makes me nauseous.I have a Dr. appt on Tuesday that I'm gonna keep. I'll tell him about this, even though there isn't anything he can do. I have some other unrelated questions about some stuff. I kinda don't want to tell him about this, because I don't want to invite a finger up the **m if I don't have to. HA!I'm also going to try to start taking more vitamins and eating more fiber. As it stands now, I really don't eat much fiber at all really. But i do drink tons of water.I'll report back after the appt.
