this is an extremely severe spasm pain in the bottom. episodes last come on mainly at night but can be during the day. it is the most painful 15/ 20 mins ever. you end up on all fours rocking. it is thought to be a disorder of the internal anal sphincter muscle that goes in to spasm. i suffer approx 6 episodes a year. it reduces you to tears. i have suffered this attacks since i was about 26 years old. i am now 49 years. as the pain passes by the time you reach a doctor it has long since stopped;. however whilst seeking diangnosis for what turned out to be fibromyalgia, i had the good fortune to meet a great bowel specialist and when i explained these epidsodes i had suffered for years (feel like you want to be put down during attack) after conducting tests which were clear he told me i also suffer from above?
i wonder if any other fibro peps also suffer this?
