How come major muscle spasms do not show up in an MRI?

How come a gastro intestinal doctor cannot tell you are having rectal/ tailbone spasms?

I cannot say why but when I started with problems and went to the gastro instestinal dr he sent me to a colon rectal surgeon who then diagnosed my rectal pain as levitor ani syndrome (muscle spasms).
2007-08 pelvic muscles spasms (per colon-rectal dr.) treated by ElectroGalvanicStimulis(EGS). 6/27/10 sat too long on a hard chair- spasms, EGS not work Botox help, spine pain dr cortisone shots in coccyx help, still pain, PT found PNE & sent me to Dr Marvel nerve blocks & MRN, TG left surgery 5/9/11. I have chronic bunion pain started/surgery at age 21. TG gave me back enough sitting to keep my job and join in some social activities. I wish the best to everyone!
