This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you have this sort of stress related tension causing aches and pains in your anus area
you could have a condition called Levator ani syndrome which is a condition causing random, painful episodes in the rectum and anus. it can cause episodic rectal pain caused by spasm of the levator ani muscle
do you have bad anxiety symptoms? bad anxiety symptoms can sometimes cause you to tense up pelvic muscles and cause them to spasms.
sometimes therapy like biofeedback therapy can help patients relax the muscle in the anal canal
also avoiding constipation, eating more fruits and vegetables and fiber can help soften stools and make bowel movements easier
let me know if you have questions.
it can be a bad habit if you continue to contract your anal muscles.
if your attention and focus is down there in your anal canal, yes you could be tensing up your anal canal muscles causing these symptoms.
you may benefit from talking to a psychotherapist about these symptoms.
if you have bad anxiety symptoms, you may need treatments to decrease anxiety symptoms.
you don't have intussusception.
the problem could be partially psychological
that is why I suggested you see a psychotherapist and your GP doctor.
if you had nerve damage or bulging disk, you would have the symptoms all the time
you don't have anything serious or "nasty" in the area

does the pelvic floor therapist do biofeedback therapy to help you lean to relax your pelvic floor muscles?
that could help.
no, the problem you have is nothing to fear
you are showing lots of symptoms of bad anxiety symptoms.
you don't have to worry.
that is good that internal self massage is helpful
you should also try some yoga and deep breathing as well
