Just an additional take: sometimes Fissures / Tears as well as Proctitis can cause 'shooting' pain. And it definitely can radiate or 'refer' to non-affected areas. The good news is that generally it's just nerves sending pain signals - and if the ER isn't seeing anything - could just be a minor injury. That being said, worsening pain would be a reason to visit again.
