Anyone know what this could be? Might be muscle spasms but not sure. Over on FB group I either got 'I dunno but I get it too' or 'maybe bart' . Tho on that post I didn't mention vaginal pain too.

The rectal pain - I had PT for a whole for, about 1.5 yrs ago. But dunno if it did anything.

I have a Lyme friend who gets the rectal pain really bad. She takes valium until it lets up.

I don't think she gets it very often, but it's severe.

I guess Lyme messes with nerves, big time.

I also get pain in my rectum ( lol Lyme is one huge PITA all around !!)
i didn't take much notice of it as it was mostly mild or at least bearable - compared to other symptoms - but then around 1 year ago I had a prolapsed rectum out of the blue.

not a pleasant experience - never heard of it being linked to Lyme before this - and it typically affects very old ladies who have severe age-related muscle wastage - not relatively fit physically active ( as much as you can be with Lyme - I do exercises every day) males in their late 40's.

I knew it must be related to the underlying health condition - ie Lyme and co. And a subsequent search of the medical literature found references to "descended colon" in Lyme positive patients which seems to be much the same thing.

whether this is to do with Borrelia preference for consuming collagen in the body and thereby weakening the structure of the colon and associated muscles that keep it in place - or some other mechanism I'm not sure - it may also be down to one of the co-infections - or just the general inflammation caused.

my partner and I both have a lot of gut symptoms with this illness and suspect Bartonella is involved in this as per Dr. Burrascano's guidelines

I had bad pelvic floor / prostate (I'm a male) pain for 6-8 months. Thought it was an infection, but it was all structural / pelvic floor.

Found a great classic osteopath who helped get me straight.

Lyme causes stabbing pains. I'm guessing it will get better with lyme treatment.

I had pelvic floor pain, a couple years before I found out I had Lyme. I did an experiment - I got in a swimming pool and stretched out every muscle I could find, weekly, for 9 months. I started by taking pain meds, and when the pain went gradually down, I didn't need to take the meds any more.

My theory is the muscles get so tight, due to lack of magnesium, that there's a lack of oxygen in and an excess of lactic acid that causes burning in the muscles and nerves. So when I stretched everything, I was able to reverse that.

I remember you saying this some time ago. That's when I did PT.
It's now moved forward as well. Thing is I take a high dose of mag. It's stabbing and/or spasms it feels like.

I always get these internal rectal spasms when I eat candy corn. I love candy corn! So bad I did quit eating it. I do get it with other candies but not as severe.

So you guys think it's Lyme, vs a coinfection?
