After suffering from anal pain for years I have recently being overjoyed by the fact I've found the name of it - Proctalgia Fugax!
Having tried to read as much as I can I've found no one really knows the cause yet.
So I'd like to start a post, not to discuss treatments/pain relief, but to discuss what people think is causing this.
Two things I've done that have helped lessen the frequency of episodes are switching to a pescatarian diet (a lot less wind) and regularly drinking tea (for regular bowel movements), but they have not stopped it.
I've started to log when I have episodes and what I've found.
Two causes that seem to occur around an episode are
-When I've sat down for too long at a desk
-When I haven't drank enough water
What I'm aiming to try soon is take a ginkgo biloba supplement and also to greatly increase the amount of fiber in my diet to see if this helps.
If anyone else has any thoughts please do share as I hope we can get to the "bottom" of this!
