Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
Proctalgia Fugax- Many triggers, some known like defecation, full rectum, sometimes during/after sex. Pain relief techniques are subjective, somefind relief the way you described, some find by lying on abdoment, pressure, sitz bath in hot water, etc.
If its frequent, you can try homeopathy , works wonders for neuralgic pains.

Hello there,
Welcome to healthcare magic.Are you talking about Proctalgia Fugax? It is said to have caused due to cramp of one of the muscles in that region(pubococcygeus muscle).But there are other reasons too.Sometimes it can occur after an orgasm.No such definite treatment per say, but studies going on like giving nerve blocks, BOTOX, other medications like Calcium channel blockers, benzodiezapines.There are certain relaxation exercises too, like touching the toe.But prior to all these, pl do consult with a general surgeon/ proctologist.
