Rectum Muscle Stimulation Test
Can bad fissure in rectum (not anal) from constipation cause back pain, muscle spasms, decreased ability to feel stool in rectum, sphincter weakness?
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Could vaginal discharge contaminate a 24 hr urine test to give 0.42g of protein? Creatine tests normal.
Not significantly: Most OB's order 24 hour urine in pregnant hypertensivie patients and almost all pregnant patients have leukorrhea (pregnancy discharge). It is primarily mucous and not loaded with protein.

Anal pain&stool leakage,did a colonoscopy& everything seemed normal.I think I have sphincter spasm which causes constipation which worsens spasm??
Increase Fiber: This sounds terrible for you. Chronic constipation can result in anal pain and spasm. Ideally, increasing your fiber by eating a lot of vegetobles -- I recommend a pound per day -- will soothe your constipation and provide your daily dose of fiber. With a normal colonoscopy, often we have to circle back to lifestyle modification to help. Also try 4 prunes a day. Very effective for constipation. ...Read more
Nerves pressed, had cauda equina, did surgery, bladder not emptying, repeated MRI & found little fluid collection.Doctor order nerve conduction test.Why ?
True true unrelated: My guess is that the nerve conduction test was to see if you had residual nerve damage from the initial problem. Surgery can relieve the pressure but the nerve damage might take up to 2 years to heal - or not heal at all. The EMG was likely to assess the extent of the problem to direct further therapy. Ask your doc why, too. ...Read more

What could've caused my false + (12% decrement) repetitive nerve stimulation test? 2 subsequent RNS and SF EMG are normal so it was definite false +
False positives: False positives are by definition variations of normal. Our body functions fluctuate from day to day. Normal ranges only capture 95% of asymptomatic people. The other cause for false positives is equipment error. Simple chance will result in false positives if enough tests are done. Sounds like it's time to stop getting these tests. ...Read more
Quick sharp pain in clit area that only happens during clitoral orgasm? No other pain w/ anything else. Urine test and vaginal tests negative.
A few things to try: It is difficult to say exactly what is going on here but here are a few ideas. Try using a sexual lubricant to see if that helps. Poor lubrication is a common cause of various post coital discomforts. Try less vigorous direct stimulation of the clitoris. Try using a vibrator instead of direct digital clitoral stimulation. ...Read more
