  • spasms from pelvic floor injection?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had trigger point injections to the pelvic floor with lidocaine. I had these injections ten days ago, and am expierencing spasms in my pelvic floor and back. These are worse than before the injection. Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks.

    I haven't had this kind of treatment, but wanted to encourage you to talk with your doctor about the result. I hope you feel better soon.

      pain management

      I was scheduled to go to a pain management clinic but before that I started to be in the MAPP study for IC and part of that was an exam by a pelvic pain specialist who know exactly where the nerves were that hurt. I told her I was going to the pain clinic and she said don't that in fact she was part of the clinic and she was leaving and going somewhere else and that if I went to the pain clinic they would not understand pelvic pain and that they could potentially make me worse. I think she was saying that if I got injections it better be by someone who really specialized in pelvic pain and knew exactly what they were doing. I'm upset that she was leaving town because she seemed to zero in on my pain better than any urologist did in terms of understanding its locality. No urologist seemed to ask me exactly where it hurts but she did.
      I got IC in 1970! I was not diagnosed until 1991. I've tried many drugs and therapies but I tend to only resort to drugs when in a flare because when I am not in a flare (from being good on diet), I suffer only from small bladder volume (like about 7 ozs.) and peeing will relieve the discomfort. When I am feeling relatively normal, I say to myself I am glad I am not on a drug. When I am in a flare, I say, why am I not on a drug! I've recently have been trying to solve my connective issue problems in general. I look to diet and herbs mostly unless it gets really bad. I still think there is great hope for each individual finding a path to healing and there are many.
