Dull Pain in Rectal Wall
This mainly happens at night when I am sleeping. It wakes me up and happens on average of about once or twice a month...
I get this very dull, but very severe (id say like an 8 out of 10 on the pain scale) pain in what seems to be the wall of my rectum. I'd estimate its about 2-4 inches up from the anus.
I usually have to wait it out, as it seems to last about 20 minutes on average. I've noticed that if I bear down, it temporarily relieves the pain. And interestingly, if I try real hard, I am able to have a bowel movement, but its no bigger than say a quarter..... and then once thats done, the pain goes away.
Its more of an annoyance than anything, but sometimes it happens at work or school, and the pain is almost unbearable... i.e. its hard to not appear that I am in physical distress.
