anal spasm or twitch

This is a little embarrasing, I am having a problem with the anal sphincter, I have a twitch or spasm in my anal sphicter, it is not painful but very annoying as I sit all day long at my job as a medical record coder.   Any suggestions?  This is very annoying and comes and goes.

if you bite your nails, you could have pinworms.  they don't really hurt anything, but you don't want them, either!  if you engage in anal sex, it could be anal warts that are causing it.  or if you have diabetes, it could be a fungal infection which is sometimes one of the first symptoms of the disease.  or it could be caused by an allergic reaction to toilet paper or something you ate....rarely it can be a sign of an abscess, polyp or STD.  best to go to your dr and let them have a look.  i know it's embarrasing, but better to know than not!  hope it's nothing serious and this helps you a little!

try this:  at least a couple of times/day,  tighten that darn sphincter as if you were trying to shut off a bowel movement. hold it for a few seconds.  in other words, exercise it to strengthen it.  get it in shape/tone.  I had a different problem with my sphincter: every once in awhile, after intercourse, it would spasm---come on real slow and then become a painful dull ache which would last several minutes.  Ever since I  employed the exercise routine, the problem has not resurfaced.  let me know if this helps.
