I have very sharp pain (like someomething pulling and wants to come out) between my lower abdomen and my anus. It is so severe that I will not be able to move. Then it goes away and might not happen in months. This started a few years ago after my third child and the first time I used a coil. It is so irregular that my doctor says they don't know what is wrong. It is similar to labour pains. It lasts for about 5 minutes. Since i remove dthe cild almost 2 yearsago it has not happened and now 4 months after my 4th child I suddenly have the pain again. The only other time I had the pain recently was just before I got pregnant and my gynae did a procedure to check if I have eggs and this was the most severe time as I could not walk for about 10 minutes. This happened about 30 minutes after the procedure when I got home.
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out.Pain between the lower abdomen and anal canal can be due to coccygdonia(an ache in the lower sacrum and coccyx),proctalgia fugax(severe pain in the anal canal or slightly higher in the pelvis, lasting 5-30 minutes.) and idiopathic perianal pain(not associated with any cause).
Proctalgia fugax is a severe, 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.
I suggest you to discuss these possibilities and get the other causes like gastrointestinal causes and pelvic causes like endometriosis and pelvic inflammatory disease ruled out.
I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
