Chronic anal/rectal/coccyx area PAIN
Proctalgia fugax?
Levator Ani Syndrome?
Pelvic Floor Tension Myalgia?

All I know is that it HURTS all the time. Just started about ten weeks ago when I was awoken from sleep by an extremely painful anus...went away in about 20 minutes, but later ushered in a chronic pain that is relentless in my coccyx, rectal/anal, and perineum area.

Anyone else have this? What can I do about it...been to the proctologist and he wants to send me to a neurologiist 'cause I have a herniated disc at L2-L3.

Help me ease my pain..please.

Dave, the neurologist might be a decent idea, but in the meantime why not check with a good PT who has been trained in pelvic floor dysfunction. They can evaluate the muscles and structure of that area and perhaps give you a hand with the problem you're facing.
