Question Levator Muscle Spasm

I am suffering from a medical condition called "Levator Muscle Spasm" which has been on going for approx. five years since I had surgery to remove a third degree strangulated haemorrhoid. I had both haemorrhoidectomy and sphincterotomy surgical procedures carried out. This condition is very debilitating and my quality of life is poor and I am reliant on muscle relaxants and pain killers.

Does any one know of a possible medical treatment for this ano-rectal levator muscle spasm?

Re: Levator Muscle Spasm

The limited information I've seen/heard about treating this condition are treatment with hot baths (15-20 minutes), NSAID's, levator massage & EMG based bio-feedback treatment.

Have you seen a GI doctor about this? I'm sure they might be able to help you with the pain and give you the treatment options. I know this is a very unpleasant thing to deal with and I hope you are able to get some help and some much needed relief.
