Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Proctalgia fugax (or levator syndrome) is a severe, episodic, rectal and sacrococcygeal pain. It can be caused by cramp of the pubococcygeus or levator ani muscles. It most often occurs in the middle of the night and lasts less than 20 minutes, an indicator for the differential diagnosis of levator ani syndrome, which presents as pain and aching lasting twenty minutes or longer. In a study published in 2007 involving 1809 patients, the attacks occurred in the daytime, (33 percent) as well as at night (33 percent) and the average number of attacks was 13. Onset can be in childhood, however, in multiple studies the average age of onset was 45. Many studies showed that women are affected more commonly than men. The pain is sometimes described as an "anal charlie horse," an anal cramp, an anal spasm, a Dani spasm, or repeated spasms of the anus.
