I have had rectal spasm/levator ani syndrome for years and years. They have diagnosed me with pelvic floor myalgia. I get rectal tightness, spasm, and pain under the tailbone constantly. I've been to all kinds of doctors, but nothing is found...except muscle tension.
Lately, I've been trying to do some internal massage. Just inside the rectum near the sphincter bands I feel gritty and string link bands under the surface of the skin, not really in the bands or muscle. They seem very small, but very sharp and painful when I press or massage them. This is in the exact area where I feel spasms and pain (under my tailbone).
I do not have any bleeding or anything, and bowel movements are actually pretty normal.
Could these be hemorrhoids? Or would they possibly be soft tissue issues or even tiny trigger points (muscle knots)?
Can someone help?
