mysterious pain in rectum

I was diagnosed with genital herpes in oct 2007. in nov 2007 i started having, i guess, muscle spasms in my rectum. they are on the left hand side. they are constant. i have had my colon checked and been on several different kinds of meds and nothing helps for very long. the doctors tell me it is in my head but im not so sure. been thinking about seeing if i can have electrogalvanic stimulation but dont know where to go. please help.....

Re: mysterious pain in rectum

when you have herpes, it affects the nerve endings and some people say that their rectum hurts or aches when they have an outbreak. It sounds like maybe you are experiencing the same symptons.

Re: mysterious pain in rectum

well if that were the case then i would be having a constant outbreak. the spasms havent stopped for over 2 yrs now. i thought it might be proctitis that is why i had a colonoscopy but it showed nothing. i read that sometimes botox helps or electrogalvanic stimulation. dont know what to do next.
