My pelvic muscles are tired
Replies sorted oldest to newest
I wake up soiled and the clenching stops but during the day it starts again
I don't know how much longer I can endure this
What do you call clenching, cramping of the pelvic muscles?
Some weeks ago you said you're fine, what has changed? Do you also have other cramps (at the fingers / feet)? Do you feel urgency as with pouchitis / cuffitis? Some more details would be helpful.
I had a stomach bug I haven't been the same since I don't think it's cramping it's all the time, constant. No other cramps besides gas here and there. Urgency idk just gas and pelvic muscle fatigue. I soil myself when I sleep.
Have you tried Levsin (or Bentyl).
whenever I have uncontrollable spasms (from IPS) I take one levsin under the tongue and in 5 to 10 minutes my spasms have stopped (at least for 4 hours).
although I suffered more in the months after takedown, I still get the spasms now and then.
although you state cramps really are not the big issue, this drug works wonders to calm that area down.
No I haven't tried those. Which doctor do I need to talk to for these?
Have you tried nortriptyline for the spasms.
Any doctor can write it.
surgeon, GI or internist.
my surgeon wrote my original script and my GI wrote the renewal.
Ps. I like levsin better.
I highly recommend seeing a pelvic floor therapist! I saw one for this exact problem and it changed everything. She worked on strengthening my pelvic floor muscles and gave me home exercises to do if any issues arise. You do have to put in the work, but it is completely worth it in the end. The exercises still help me to this day!
