Levator syndrome


Posted 2007-05-27

Hello, my name is Phil and I am suffering from LEVATOR SYNDROME (Coccydinia). I read a lot of the letters at the www.coccyx.org page, but most deal with actual pain in the coccyx, which is something I don't experience. My pain is levator ani related (lasting anywhere from an hour to 18 hours a day), comes after bowel movements and was something that started about 18 months ago.

Did I miss some letters from people with a similar condition?. Any assistance you could give would be appreciated.

Note from Jon Miles: You can find pages that refer to this muscle by putting the word 'levator' into the search box at the top of each page. Most of the pages you will find for this search are medical papers, and a couple of them are personal experiences.
