1. Levator ani syndrome is characterized by a vague, indefinite rectal discomfort or pain. The pain is felt high in the rectum and is sometimes associated with a sensation of pressure.

3. In patients with levator ani syndrome, palpation of the levator muscle during digital rectal examination usually reproduces the pain.
