I've been having pain in the rectum for the past 10 months... I have pain with bowel movements, and burning sitting pain after sitting for more than 20 minutes. I have been seeing a pelvic floor physical therapist for 8 months and have had Botox injections into the pelvic floor since my doctor insisted that my tight muscles were causing the pain. My muscles are relaxed but my internal sphincter remains tight (my latest diagnosis)... According to several doctors and my pt, it is not a nerve problem... I don't know where else to turn, I feel hopeless. I am 35 and a mother of two children (5 year old & 10 month old).. Can't imagine living the rest of my life with this burning sitting pain...
