For close to 3 years now, I have struggled with rectal pain. Levator Ani Syndrome seems to be what the problem is, per doctor. Has anyone had this as well? It starts up about an hour after getting up in the morning and stays with me all day. I've had to go on pain meds, but would like any suggestions on Muscle Relaxants or medications that helped you.
Try kegel exercises. See a physio. for pelvic pain. Try sitz baths that will give you instant relief and also wring small towel with cold water and hold it in that area -- to give you instant relief. Hope this works for you.
Have you tried valium? I also had my doctor prescribe me valium suppositories to use during the daytime (needs to be specially compounded - not all pharmacies do this) since the oral valium made me sleepy.
