In brief: See answer

Your symptoms are likely related to increase tension/tightness of your pelvic floor muscles and are included in a list of various symptoms associated with a number of symptom syndromes that go by different names and likely all inter-related: pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic floor tension myalgia, vulvodynia, ic, ibs, etc.
If no underlying problems found on eval, pelvic floor physical therapy helps.
