anal spasm, hormone related

I had an anal spasm at night and it felt like a horrible cramping sensation in my rectum, I told my mother and she said she used to get them before going through menopause, and now rarely ever has them, I am 48 going through the big " M", and wonder what other surprises for me, ha,, does anyone know what could be cause of spasm and she recommended a warm water enema to stop the spasm,, very painful, almost had to take a nuycenta... but it passed after 10 horrific minutes.. hope this might help someone else,
thanks

You could try sitting in a warm tub for 15 minutes or using a sitz bath to stop the spasm . I sometimes sit in warm bathtub for 20 minutes if I am constipated and this helps relax the muscles in my rectum an anus making it easier to go.
