Levator ani syndrome

I've been having this incredible discomfort in the rectal area periodically which involves tightness of the anal area and terrible pressure. Though I haven't been to a doctor about it, I've read about Levator Syndrome on the internet and have decided that this is what I am suffering from. Last night I had the problem again and it seemed quite severe. I found almost immediate relief by doing the following:

1) I lied "back down" on the bathroom floor positioning myself with towels under my back so that I wasn't too cold. I bent my legs and sort of pulled them up towards my chest as I lying on the floor.

2) I gently tried to defecate - pushing gently every few seconds. After a couple of minutes of doing this, I managed to relieve myself of sizable amount of crap which seemed to be some what firmer than normal. I had myself possitioned such that it went on the bathroom floor so that it could be readily cleaned up.

3) After I had pushed out all that would readily come out. I was feeling somewhat better. At that point, I just lifted my legs up and moved them like I was riding a bicycle on my back. In about three minutes, I was feeling absolutely no discomfort.

4) I cleaned up the mess and went to bed and went to sleep right away.

I don't know what of this acutally helped with the problem or if it was just a coincidence, but before I started this procedure, I was in a great deal of discomfort, and I can tell you that the next time this occurs, I will do this right away. I sure hope telling this somewhat embarassing stuff helps some one. It sure seemed to help me. Good Luck.
