Abnormal pressure on rectum. Please help

Hi, I am a newbie to this site and I have been suffering from weird rectal problems. Here are my problems.

1.Constant 24/7 pressure on my rectum and feel like going to toilet evenhough my bowel is empty. I have been suffering from this prolem for the past 3 yrs and recently It has become so severe that I cannot even walk like a normal person. When I walk I feel like I am losing some fecal mass though bowel is completely empty.(Even after enema).

2.Rotten egg odor coming from gut which makes me feel like freak and I cant go anywhere, now at the edge of losing my current job (Already lost many jobs before).

Though I have few other problems I feel those will be ruled out once I get treated for these two. Honestly I lost all my hopes and after seeing forums regarding rectal pressure on this site my hopes came back a bit. I have done so much research and few tests like blood, urine, MRI of the brain (to find out if I have any inflammation in CNS), EEG, Colonoscopy. Every test came back normal. Please help me.

Thank you so much.

Have you been or were you wearing tone up sneakers or something similar when pain started?

Sorry for the really late reply. I hope that you all no longer have the problem. But if you do may be I can help. I have been suffering from the problems for more than 7 years now. I gave up looking for the solution 3 years ago. But recently I could not take it anymore. So I gave it a try one more time. I came to the US this year and consulted a doctor here. I have undergone a test called defecography and diagnosed with Anismus. It means the puborectalis sling is contracting  when it is supposed to be relaxing. It is a weird condition and tough to treat. Please reply me with what is happening with you.
