Hello,
 
I am a Grade 8 teacher and had to leave work today kind of abruptly.( luckily, the special needs teacher was able to cover for me until a supply teacher comes in.  For months I would once in a blue moon experience a sharp pain in my rectum. It usually would only happen once or twice and then be gone. It almost feels like it is located in the area between my rectum and my testes..(sorry, but I had to be precise...ha ha) Anyways, today, it happened often enough that I had to leave work. I have been off of prednisone for two weeks and have been feeling fine with regards to any bathroom issues I was having. Only going two or three times a day with no blood and solidly formed stool. So I don't think it's a flare up but could it mean one is coming?  Has anyone experienced pains in that general area? It almost feels like it is due to built up gas but there wasn't any pain in my stomach so I am a little bit confused. Any thoughts????

Yes, I've had that....but mostly I have a kind of throbbing or uneasiness.

Rectal meds would help a lot....as would an antispasmodic such as dicyclomine (Bentylol/Bentyl).

The gas going through or sitting the rectum is classic (for me) when starting to flare....

I get this on occassion as well (even when I'm not having proctitis issues), I honestly think it's just the nerves located in the rectom, for some reason it just sends off a jet of pain here and there every once in a while. Mine don't usually last very long, maybe a few seconds although sometimes it feels like it's longer but I'm sure it's not (that's likely that after-shock that I'm still feeling or something)..it always freaks me out cuz you'll just be sittng there or standing there and all the sudden you get this stupid sharp pain out of the blue and your body automatically reacts (makes me jump or throw my hips forward) and it looks so silly, like someone just shot me in the ass or something, but what can you do, likely just the nature of the beast.

Me too! I have had this exact thing happen to me.. although it's not too frequent, and pb4, you described it PERFECTLY!!! LOL.. it makes me look like I got shot in the butt, and I remember one time (I even posted it here a few years ago) It hit me so hard I reached back and grabbed my butt with both hands and threw myself onto my bed.. lol.. Ya.. that hurts!!!! Thank goodness it only lasts a second or two or three..

A perfect description PB4....like a shot in the ass...I figured it wasn't anything major but it was happening frequently for a 10 minute period earlier today , and then it went away...I wish I wouldn't have left work but what the heck was I supposed to do...lol. The kids would probably think I was some kind of freak...ha ha. Anyways, thanks for the responses and I'm feeling much better. Have a great night.

Hi BBC,

I looked into it after reading your post. Sounds like that is a possibility. It's not that bad at all now that I know other people occasionally deal with it. I just thought it was something completely out of the ordinary when it happened. It has not happened since yesterday and was only for a few minutes. I will be monitering it though, and if it gets worse I'm gonna mention it to my doctor. Thanks for all the responses. Off to work, have a great day everyone.

I used to get this from time to time, but as soon as I started doing Kegel exercises it completely stopped. 

I've concluded (at least for myself) that they were muscle spasms from weakened muscles.   For instance if you're at a desk all day and never get exercise, you could possibly get back problems. 

Try looking up Kegel exercises.  Hope this helps.

Weird thing about that desdwel is when I was doing kegals I noticed I got it more plus I'd get some frequent cramping in my groin area in general...I stopped the kegals and the groin cramping hasn't come back and much less frequency on the "shot in the ass" pains too.
