Re: Rectal Muscles tighten before BM passes
Yes, sometimes its the feeling of an incomplete evacuation, but only when its the softer/looser ones. If its a firm one, then typically its ok because I can relax after the initial tightening on the way out to let it pass. I NEVER force anymore, and always check afterwards when I'm home and haven't seen a hemmorhoid in a long time!
Its just strange that the muscles tighten on the way out, why would that be a sign of internal rectal prolapse?
I'm wondering if this has to do with anxiety, because often times I notice that I'm tightening these muscles for no reason.
(I just had a loose stool and while I feel there was a bit more to pass, I don't have that feeling of pressure and need to, but can't go)
