Sphincter Spasm Symptoms
The last few weeks I have been slowly increasing the amount of kegels I practice. Recently my sphincter muscle has been spasming. Why?
Levator Spasm: Congratulations on starting your kegel's at the age of 23. If there's one preventative thing you can do for your genitourinary health, that's it. Sometimes though, contractions of the muscles in the vaginal region can lead to spasms -- levator syndrome/spasm predisposes you to tight, rigid muscles that require physical therapy to help you relax. Get a pt referral, you may need vaginal dilators.
Colic: The most common symptoms for sphincter of oddi dysfunction is biliary colic - usually episodes of right upper belly pain which come and go. This condition is almost always diagnosed after the gallbladder has been removed. You will need to see a gastroenterologist who specializes in this area for a true diagnosis.See 1 more doctor answer

Varies: The primary systems involved in CP are the muscles and nervous involved in movement and maintaining posture. Abnormally high or low muscle tone and impairments in the control of these muscle are the hallmark of cp. Other systems can have associated problems, like seizures, visual defects and more. This is a broad diagnosis that varies from very mild to quite disabling, so its features also vary.
Antispasmodics or: Surgical interventions may help. Your dr can adjust the dose of your meds or add a stronger meds/ narcotics. Take care! Http://my. Clevelandclinic. Org/disorders/gastrointestinal_tract_disorders/hic-sphincter-of-oddi-dysfunction. Aspx.
Unlikely: Though everyone's body is unique, simply lying down is unlikely to cause a sphincter of oddi spasm. I in fact just searched the medical literature and cannot locate a report of this happening. Spasm may be related to shifting stomach contents, so spasm may occur if you are lying down with a full stomach. Sphincter of oddi spasm is potentially serious, so please consult a physician.

I have a UTI that seems to be making my sphincter of oddi spasm and is very painful. I'm taking an antibiotic. Should I just wait or go get checked?
Wrong Sphincter: The sphincter of oddi is a muscular valve that controls the flow of digestive juices from the pancreas and gall bladder into duodenum. It is not part of the urinary tract. That said, it is not uncommon for a UTI to cause spasm of the bladder neck and urethral sphincter interfering with normal urination: hesitancy, intermittency, weak stream. This will improve with antibiotic treatment of your uti.See 1 more doctor answer
Hard to Know: Proctalgia fugax- brief episodes of rectal pain generally associated with, unpredictable spasm like pain that is often described by patients as: very sharp and twisting, lancinating, cramping, can awaken you from sleep. Last from seconds to as long as 30 minutes, feels exactly like sphincter muscle spasms, however- your doctor will still exam to rule out, lesions, fissures in that region.
I sometimes suffer from a bowel sphincter muscle that gets painfull spasms for a few minutes then subsides. Only happens rarely, must I worry about it?
Proctalgia fugal: Your condition is suggestive of proctalgia fugax which is as you described a spasm in the anal sphincter it could be painful but it is not a serious condition. It could be stress related topical numbing medicine might help. It is usually self limited.
What else besides nitro cream (side effects not good) can be used to relieve pain from anal sphincter spasms and throbbing pain. Anything natural?
Diltiazem 2% ointmen: 50% of fissures will get better on their own, without any intervention. For the other half, the majority can get treated with these ointments. Unfortunately, there is not a natural remedy that has been investigated that provides cure. If the side effects are bothering you with the nitro ointment, Diltiazem has a lower side effect profile and higher cure rate. I'd suggest that.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
