It can be due to proctalgia fugax or levator ani syndrome. However other causes also need evaluation. Proctalgia fugax is episodic, anal pain that occurs due to contraction of the anal muscles.Treatment involves warm sitz baths,over the counter pain killers like ibuprofen and botox shots in severe cases.
Levator ani is group of muscles that surrounds and supports the anus. Spasms of these muscles are believed to cause rectal pain and can occur frequently in women.
