Types of Pain and Problems

Proctalgia Fugax

This is severe and sudden pain in the ano-rectal area. It seems like a spasm that may last anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes. Patients may experience this sensation a few times a year and it may come in episodes. Patients typically have no symptoms or issues in between episodes. Generally, there is no association with bowel movements. It usually affects women more often than men. Most patients do not seek treatment. Treatment options include warm baths, relaxation, meditation, massage, stretching, enemas, Botox injections, and certain medications.
