Hi, just wanted to add my experiences to this site, which I have found most interesting. I have suffered for about 3 years with proctal fugax, diagnosed earlier this year. My pain starts with sharp stabbing pains in the lower abdomen. This can last on and off for hours. Then I get the intense pressure in my bottom, making it feel like it's pulling down and about to burst! I am unable to move or walk as the each step is like a knife inserted up though my bottom. I also sweat profusely. The pain seems to go into my pelvic and pubic bones?? I feel so faint and go a deathly shade of white! Unlike most descriptions I have seen, my pain regularly lasts several hours. It can happen day or night, and maybe 3-4 times a week. This is destroying my life. I also get severe back pain but don't know if this is associated or not. Sex or a bowel movement can bring this on, but normally it just happens. I can't believe I'm expected to put up with this pain for the rest of my life, it's unbearable. I also have anismus (the internal and external muscles of the sphincter don't work properly) and slow transit constipation. Does this sound like any of you??
