No Nerve Sensation in Internal Anal Sphincter
I had a dynamic proctography & the doctor that ran the test said everything just sits there. My G.I. doc examined me and said I have no nerve sensation in the internal anal sphincter muscle. My former Neuro initially said, "MS", but then decided he didn't want to "label" me with MS. He ruled everything else out. My G.I. Doc called him & told him that I had no nerve sensation in the anal sphincter muscle. Neuro had assistant call me and schedule appt. When I saw him, he said, "I don't know why your bowel doesn't work". My spinal tap showed two ogliconal bands, my brain MRi's in '07 only showed 1 tiny white dot. I had an MRI of the spine last month, all clear. Neurosurgeon suggested I see a different Neurologist. I have severe back pain since 11/05, diagnostic nerve blocks showed the pain originates in the medial branch nerves. Left lumbar rhizotomy failed.  Does this sound like MS? And will a Neurologist know anything about nerves in the internal anal sphincter muscle? I lost 18#s in 06, regained a little, now weigh 80#s & 5'2, very poor appetite.Extremely fatigued all of the time, hurts to bend forward even a little bit.
Thank you, in advance.
