What does it feel like, Des?  I get the golfball feeling in my rectum sometimes; hurts to poo, feels like there is a golfball stuck up there putting pressure on my rectum, but not really spasms.

The spasms feel like knives and pressure... I know YOUCH!!! They happen to me when I'm sleeping sometimes too and wake me up. It lasts less than a minute but a long minute at that.

I thought that golf-ball feeling was related to feeling constipated? I get that and sometimes just mucous comes out, or actual stool...but them I'm a crohnie of 14 yrs, who's lactose intolerant, and suspected of having some IBS going on as well...same crap, different pile, it all sucks!

Take care!

Hello~

 

Yes! I get those, too. I remember one time, I was driving and I had to pull over...it takes your breath away! I don't know what cases it but I have noticed for me, it only happens around the time of period. Have you noticed any pattern?

Oh thank goodness someone else knows what I'm talking about. I haven't really developed a pattern because they used to be so infrequent and I would forget about it until the next one. Lately, they have been more regular and I don't know why. What do you do to relieve them? or do you just let them pass?

I get the rectal spasms, but never associated it with the IBS. Hmmmm, gonna have to address this with my doc. Thanks Des, now I can tell the doc, my friend figured out what he could not!

I love that, Ides! I think you Crohnies have it worse, and I sympathize, but it's true - we're all poopin all the time - and it's not fun.

Des, I don't know what spasms you're talking about... I guess I am lucky (for now anyway). I'm sorry you get that. Isn't there something you can do? Does poo come out when this happens?

NP Flopsie :)

Lil, Poop doesn't come out... its just a very quick onset of pain that radiates in my rectum just below my tail bone and it is very painful. I don't know why it happens but it could be different causes for different people. I have just been getting them a lot lately and I wanted to see if anyone got them too. Its a pain in the rear (pun intended) :)

For as painful as they are, they are pretty quick for me...I do find that If I am able to use the bathroom, it seems to help. Unfortunately, I cannot go at will ( i know some people that have this talent) so most of the time, I just wait it out.

i think i know what you are talking about! but i get the knife pain more in lower gut/bladder/tushie. stabbing pain, feels like it is going through your body, like a magic trick? i thought i was the only one! i pretty much assumed it was my bodys' "you got to poo" signal. i get it before every urgent poop... since i was a little girl...
unless we are talking about two different things...
oh, fun, i will share the conversation my husband and i have...
ME: oh, ouch the knives again.... (in pain)
TIM: baby, did you eat knives again? You know you shouldn't do that... (condecendingly)
ME: but they are so delicious.... (heads for the toilet)
end scene

It probably is the same thing. Mine are more painful towards the back but the rectum I think is pretty much in the middle so I'm sure you can get the pains in the front or the back.
LOL... cute scene... call me if you need an understudy (I can play THAT part) :)

Well, doc called in for some Nulev. Its helping somewhat. Actually I think now I'm just getting the pains that were caused from the last couple of days so I think its working pretty good.

That's great, Des. :-) Hopefully all the pain will be gone in no time.

But, isn't Nulev for people who have IBS-D? I read on Nulev.com that it "slows down the movement" of the intestines.

Yes, its supposed to relax the muscles which it is doing and I haven't had much C lately... mostly D, kind of was wondering myself if my body was switching itself again. I have also been told to stop the miralax because of the increased D I have been having. Now a different approach, ugh, so frustrating.

Oh Des, I'm sorry. Do you think you couold really be going back to IBS-D, what you used to have? I really find it strange that you are having D when this med is supposed to help with that. If you haven't been on it long then maybe it just needs time to work to its full potential. ???

Thanks Lil, I have only been taking it since yesterday. The doc called it in for me over the weekend and I notice its helping with the spasms which is helping with the D. I have only gone once today so far so I'm hoping this stuff will help.

I've had a pressure feeling in the past which can be painful sometimes. It turned out to be a rectal ulcer.

I know your pain.  I've had them for years.  I was just recently at rectal/colon surgeon and I'm having my 3rd surgery now.  I told the Dr about the spasms and he said they are from fissures (un-natural tear in the rectum) and they do this surgery fistulotomy (probably spelled that wrong).  But the spasms alone are horrific.

I've had this condition for years. It usually occurs at night, lasts about 10 minutes, it feels like I have to poo but I don't, and it is EXTREMELY painful.

The doctor was unable to diagnose the condition, but I think I've discovered what it is. I do not think it's fissures, or IBS; Instead, I believe it's a condition known as Proctalgia fugax. It's also known as Rectal Spasms I think.

I'm not a doctor, but the symptoms seem to be dead on.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proctalgia_fugax

I'm going to visit my doctor again and confirm tht it's Proctalgia fugax. I would suggest that you all seek the advise and proper diagnosis from a medical professional.

I've read several sites and appearently there's no known cure. The good news is that it's not a disease or a life threatening illness. It's a real bummer, but I'm very happy to finally know what this is, and to have found some people dealing with the same thing.

I also have been getting serverly painful rectal spasms and I am now researching the possible cause and what to do. It happens at night when I am in bed but a few days ago it happened to me while at work thank God it was time to go home. It is so painful, almost intolerable. I will share what ever information I can with those who are having the same kind of Rectal Spasms. Good Luck to all who have this problem

UGH, those suck so bad (I have crohn's as well as IBS) but they didn't happen to me until after my GI said he felt very strongly that I had IBS as well as crohn's (which had been DX for about 13 yrs prior to the IBS DX from him)...for me it's like a horrid cramp in the rectom and you just want to die when you also feel like you have to poop during one of those episodes, I'm just sooooooooo glad that it doesn't happen very often and I have noticed that when I was doing kegal exercises that I would get those pains at least once a month, since I stopped doing the kegals (cuz I was suspicious that doing the kegals might be linked with those pains/spasms/cramps whatever you want to call them) I haven't had them happen to me since, so needless to say I'm no longer doing kegals.

Hello, everyone. I am very new to the whole forums and chatting experience. I did a search on "rectal spasms" and it lead me here. I am 55 years old, and was diagnosed with colon cancer last year. I had a colon resection but no colostomy (thank goodness) in September, 2008. For about the last four months, I have been having rectal spasms. The pain is excrutiating but it is never associated with needing to have a bowel movement. I have never had the "golf ball" sensation, either, just the dibilitating pain that can last anywhere from 10 minutes to over an hour. Has anyone else had this experience? I have seen my regular family doctor and he prescribed muscle relaxers, but they have not helped. I am due to see my gastro-enterologist, surgeon, and oncologist in August - that is if I can wait until then. I confess to being a little freaked out by this, fearing that it may be cancer-related. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Yes, I know what everyone is talking about. Excuse the crudeness, but the knife pain comes from your butthole cramping. It's incredibly painful, all you can really do is force yourself to relax and wait it out, or getting on hands and knees and pointing your bum up can help relax it. (also farting 'in', if that makes sense?) Maybe something sedative and relaxant might help, because it can happen when I'm really anxious.

I hope everyone manages to improve this because it's so disturbing, and it's not like you can tell people what's going on and that makes it worse!
 
Ps. These intimate spasms can sometimes be associated with fibromyalgia
