Intestinal pain: With a diagnosis made from such big words you probably have seen a GI specialist. If not find one. Spasms can be intense and it is confusing to the normal stool and gas release management. I the meantime try frequent bathing. Try a hemmeroid cream at bed time.

Can proctalgia fugax be the reason for painful bowel movements? Pain is not severe and doesn't last long.

Can proctalgia fugax be the reason for painful bowel movements? Pain is not severe and doesn't last long.

Probably not: Proctalgia is a spasm of the muscles around the rectum. Generally it is like any muscle cramp (leg, foot) - spontaneous and without any precipitating reason. Pain with a bowel movement is more likely from anal irritation at the rectal orifice. Any more specifics requires a bit of detective work with a good history of when, what makes it better, worse, etc. ...Read more

It is also best to be seen in person when pain is part of the scenario rather than just hanging out on line waiting for answers that may not .. ...Read more
