can trapped s3 nerve cause anal burning pain?

can trapped s3 nerve cause anal burning pain?
Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your question.

Yes, a trapped S3 nerve can cause severe anal pain.

The anorectal region receives nerve supply from different nerves - from the pudendal nerve, from the sacral plexus, from the inferior rectal nerve and also branches from the posterior femoral cutaneous and with the posterior scrotal nerves .

The pudendal nerve received fibres from the sacral nerves S2 - S4. The sacral plexus is compsed of nerve fibres from S1- S4.

So any entrapment of S3 nerves will cause pain in the anorectal region.

I hope this helps.

can injections help this? or what else would releive the pain?
Hi--the other expert is off line. Yes, cortisone injections and, if necessary, ablative injections to permanently deaden the nerve can be used as can therapy from a physiatrist--a physical medicine and rehabilitation MD specialist.
