Bottom Pain !

Posted , 11 users are following.

Hi ladies

Has anyone every experienced dull pain in rectum?

I get it occasionally for absolutely no obvious reason, then it passes, either on its own or I take a painkiller.

Been seen at hospital...all clear...doesn't occur very often but just suddenly happens

Could it possibly have a connection with pelvic floor?

Any ideas ?

Thank you

    I do. Usually around ovulation and menses, however it's really painful, sometimes I can't sit properly because of it, as soon as ovulation is over I don't have it. Being female sucks sad x

    Hello janeben

    I was at the doc yesterday for the same thing.

    Completely random pain some time really sore and others just like a press. Sometimes off to the side no reason. I got checked tummy pressed nothing and then the obvious exam but all ok. She did not have any idea what it is an no other pain or anything else. I got a cream to put in twice a day it is for spasms. But I have not got it yet they need to order it. But as soon as I get it I will post the name and let u know how I get on.

      Do you know Julie, I think my ovaries could be linked as it only happens at ovulation and sometimes just around my period. I had a scan 18 months ago that didn't show anything other than a bulky uterus but it's odd how I suffer horrendously around ovulation, it's worse than my periods x

      I'm not sure if it's ovaries as my last period was April 2015...

      Are we talking about same pain/ discomfort?

      It' seems to be in back passage and happens for no obvious reason.

      Sometimes, if you go to loo, it helps but returns soon after.

      I only get it occasionally but do remember a time when I was asleep in bed and got these pains and at night seems worse. Just sat on loo, tried to go back to bed ...in end took paracetamol!

      Not constipated or too loose either!

      Thanks for feedback jx

      I think it sounds the same. It's like a pain up inside my bottom (how gross lol) but it only happens around ovulation and sometimes around period, I think it might be pressure in my case x

    I've been suffering from this for about six months. I'm convinced it's linked to hormones. It is SO uncomfortable. I've tried every cream and have been to two specialists. Nothing abnormal found. I'm now trying to eliminate certain foods to see if that helps. Any ideas would be gratefully received!

      Thank you Brevis

      Just wondering how certain foods aggrevate this problem?

      Does yours feel right at base of coccyx but inside that area?

      Quite extreme when first starts changing to dull ache then just delicate or tender ?

      Mine started yesterday at around 5.30, whilst just standing in house!

      Pain stopped after half hour but even today, although fine, that internal area feels tender...same?

      Sometime right in the area and sometimes to the right of it. I haven't had a period for 3 years now I am just turning 50 in April. In the past i to have been woke up during the night with it. Going to the toilet to try and relive the pain but nothing happens. I do know I have a fybriod which has been scanned recently with and internal examination. But when u Google this bottom pain. There is a lot of it male and female. But we will just have to keep one another posted in this one too.

    Hi sorry to jump in to your discussion just wanted to say I had this symptom really bad in 2012. Came on one night while I was kneeling down packing to go on holiday the pain was so severe I had to call an emergency dr. I was rooted to the spot couldn't move

    I was taken to hospital had lots of tests done, consultant told me I had a condition but can't remember the name of it. MRI scan showed I had small amount of fluid accumulated on my rectum

    He drained the fluid and prescribed cream called diltasim (don't think that's how you spell it) you insert it inside back passage and it eases the muscle spasm, the condition can be linked to chronic stress & anxiety

    I'm nearly 52 ( Feb) now considered early full meno so don't know if Peri caused any if the muscle spasms I also have a history of ME. The pain was excruciating I could hardly sit or out my foot on the floor

    No problems with the spasms fior a couple of years now so here's hoping that symptoms past

    My main symptom since March. 2015?is off balance, woozy drunk feeling, it's awful, can't wait till this goes

    Hope all you ladies hormones settle down soon

    Hugs

    Brenda X

      Hi Brenda

      Thanks for experience...thought I was the only one...seems to affect lots of us!

      Wasn't sure if it was a peri/age symptom or just me!

      I'm 58 and still not considered menopausal, as had last period in April 15. I never had these symptoms when did have periods...

      Could be stress related I suppose but I can't see any pattern of when it does occur...perhaps I should log it from now on.

      Muscle spasm makes sense...but 36 hours later, I still have a very slight tender feeling.

      Yours jx

      I think that the muscle spasm theory could be right, think if you get cramp in your calf, it can ache for days after as all cramp is, is spasms of the muscles x

    Hi janeben, it's a rectal spincter that causes this pain. Usually, happens around the time of your period. It is a tightening of the rectal muscle that makes this happen, as your period is causing all sorts of muscles and nerves to move. Once you reach menopause with less frequent periods those pains will go away. Hooray, I don't get them anymore!

      Hi there,

      Thank you...makes sense but I seem to have developed these occasional symptoms since periods stopped...can't actually remember if they started when had periods!

      Oh well...at least it's nothing serious just uncomfortable for a bit...

      I glad I raised the subject as it seems fairly common! Jx
