I have bouts of rectal pain which the doctor decided was proctalgia fugax. But I too at night after eating a good bit for the day have pressure low in what feels like the pelvic area when it is really my bowel area, this extends into the next morning. But since I have had female related issues also I don't know what of all of this is related to that or the other. I have low back pain upon rising in the morning, and the gas I have is always more prominent in the lower left side at times during the day. Feels like a stinging tingling feeling. I experience this in my upper middle part of my abdomen also and also it tightens up which is from the gas, like a knotted feeling. This drives me crazy. I do not have a problem with loose stools from eating too much fiber. The only problem I have had in the past from that is going to the bathroom multiple times a day and having spasms afterward that would ease up eventually. But that was from my body trying to adjust to bran flakes that I ate twice a day. I eat it twice a day now with no problem. And I stay tired most of the time also, but I am 48 years old, which is a factor.
