I'm new to this site. For the last 12 years I've had constant trouble with pain in the anal area which also causes sciatic type pain. I've seen numerous proctologists and spent a fortune on alternative treatments. The problem is really getting me down. I've done research on the internet and I've been wondering if the problem is something like Levator Ani Syndrome. Has anyone out there had a similar problem, or can offer any advice, which would be gratefully excepted.
