Hey all. I suffer from anal and rectal tension and pressure. Have been going to see a pelvic floor physical therapist and she says I'm super tight down below. I finally have a diagnosis after 5 or 6 years. I have had a gap of about 18 months symptom free but the last month or so it's back. I panicked and it's now an obsession. I went to see a tms therapist and she said if I find physical therapy helps to relax the muscles then it's ok to go. However I think that it doesn't really do anything. It's nice to be told that yes I am tight and tender down there but because of the obsession I think it's just going to prolong the issue. I know it's psychological and the therapist agrees that its a subconscious tensing up. But I'm worried that if I keep going to see her and keep doing the self internal massage it's just a constant reminder. I'm going to stop going I think. I'm having a bad day of it today and can't stop thinking about it which then makes me Google all about it. How people have it and can't get rid of it. But I just wanted some advice. I beat this the last time by just carrying on. The trouble is I want a quick fix. I ordered Steve ozanich's book the great pain deception but haven't read it yet so I may give it a go. When I'm drunk or asleep I have no issues. But I think to break the obsession I need to stop going to physical therapy.
