Feels like labour in anus!

Has anyone had this?

Where inside your anus goes really tight and has quite an intense pain/burning? It really does feel like a powerful contraction.
This happens to me every now and then, and I think only in my sleep. It normally goes off 2-15 minutes and pain totally disappears!

Happens to me sometimes too, seems to be connected to my period. I believe on MN it's referred to as "javelin arse".

Are we talking about proctaglia fugax?

I get javelin arse. Possibly too much info but I find that gritting my teeth and pushing past the pain to force a fart out knocks the spasm on the head. Easier said than done as sometimes my body doesn’t want to cooperate.

Sounds similar to what I'm getting since yesterday, TMI but I'm constipated and until last night I hadn't gone in four or so days, haven't managed to go properly but the pain is like having a red hot needle jammed up my butthole and makes me tense it funny

Seems quite common then. Mine is nothing to do with my period or needing a poo!

Not sure why it's referred to as Javelin Arse?!!! But thanks for the replies.

I get these in my vagina and my bum, mostly when I was pregnant but a few times since as well. I've heard the vagina ones being called fanny daggers but never heard of the javelin arse nickname haha. I do know they are common as most of my friends who've had children have experienced them.

I get this. 😳
Tends to be just before my period is due.

Javelin arse because it feels like a javelin is being shoved up well.. Your arse 😂

When I usually get it its period time, but I have noticed it at other times when not on recently

I wouldn't say it's like a javelin being shoved up your arse, more like a football!

I find sitting on a hot water bottle relieves it. I don't get it so much now I am retired so I am guessing its stress related?

I used to have this occasionally, in the years when I had had a baby, including by caesarean. I don't any more and haven't for at least a decade.

Where period related could be endo

It’s a muscle spasm in the rectum that usually comes at night. Very painful but harmless. Proctaglia Fugax is the medical name.

@goingtotown that's helpful thank you.
