When I'm sitting I get burning pain to rectum opening and when using bathroom and also bladder pain.

It started in the last few days. Is this serious.

I'm hoping to see my GP but its so difficult in the current lockdown.

I also get pain in my legs and arms, don't know wether it,s neuropathy but still waiting to see specialist and GP not very helpful.

Can anyone help please

Could you take a urine sample in for testing?

We can do that at our practice. Phone and ask if you can collect some sample bottles.

Take in a sample from your first urine in the morning. This will eliminate or confirm a urine infection.

I would also ask for a phone call back from a GP with regards to rectal pain / burning.

How are your bowel movements? Any straining?

Have you ever tried using Germoloids Cream?

Have you checked your temperature?

PS

I think I'd also phone the hospital and ask for a phone consultation with the Specialist you're waiting to see.

Hi there I have levator-ani syndrome which has similar symptoms. Have rectal pain and spasms in pelvic floor.

I attend specialist physio for pelvic floor trigger point therapy and also receive botox injections into pelvic floor to help with painful spasms.

Where you are having pain could be any number of conditions, reccomend you speak to GP or consultant for tests/diagnosis. Hope you get answered soon.

May I ask where specifically (what area of pelvic floor) do they give the botox injections. What type of doctor gives you the botox. I have had some success with physio, but I am thinking maybe the addition of botox would help me. I appreciate your help!!

Hi the botox goes into the pubirectalis muscle, the gynea will press on various areas between rectum and vagina, the area that gives pain and is "locked" in spasm is where the injections go.

I also see my specialist physio who performs trigger point manipulation, this combination of treatment helps with painful spasms. Doesn't eradict symptoms but does alleviate pain and spasms

Injections have to be three months apart. I was due mine before covid isolation but got cancelled, my pain and spasms has got much worse, here's hoping we see an end to this soon and get back to normal life!!!!

Thank you, Skye22! Please excuse my stupidity, and I do know what the puborectalis muscle is, but when your gynocologist administers the botox, is it done internally or externally? I currently see a phyiotherapist who does the trigger point manipulation both internally & externally). My physio can't do botox, so should I look for a gynocologist ? My pain is so much more manageable than it used to be, and if I get the botox, I am hoping I can feel even better! I live in Jacksonville FL area, so I will begin researching:) Stay well and thanks so much for your help!!!!

Your welcome, hope the treatment works, oh and the injections are external mainly I got a couple just inside vaginal opening sounds awful but for me it works really well.

Good luck and wish you good health!!

Hello Skye22

We have communicated before.

Are you in the UK? Might have asked before.

If you are, what region, and who does your Botox and physio please.

Sounds like you are doing well. Good to hear.

Hi there I stay West Coast scotland, I attend the new hospital in Glasgow for botox treatment, Dr Tiaggi (not sure of spelling) gynaecology. Attend greater Glasgow and Clyde for physio. I definitely benefit from combined treatment. There is a 3mth waiting list for gynaecology and physio.

Thank you.

Sounds like treatment better in Scotland than England!

I've heard of a physio in Edinburgh called Bill Taylor who's supposed to be good. Still a long way from Glasgow though. Am thinking of making journey to see him when we're allowed to.

I live outside London in Bedfordshire but happy to travel.

Do you know what practice Bill works from.

He's in Edinburgh. Please just Google his name. Probably someone nearer for you in London.

Thank you

Do you have any metal hardware inside of you from a previous operation? Parts can migrate into the rectum and bladder. I’d get an X-ray done if you have.

Urinalysis would be a good idea and all the tests should be done to rule out vulvodynia.

Sorry forgot to mention I had stomach surgery but need anything inside my body

There must be an emergency phone number you can call ? I’m in Canada so I’ve no clue what that number is. Don’t give up.
