Dear Poppie
This can be a spasm of the muscles in the anus area - one gets 2 types - Proctalgia fugax and Levator ani syndrome. They think that it is related to irritable bowel syndrome. His doctor can prescribe medicines to use after doing an examination ( Salbutamol/Clonidine/Amylnitrate)

Is it possible to take some muscle relaxant that would help with the pain of levator ani syndrome?
