Hi - has anyone with LS also experienced problems with their pelvic floor mussels?  Mine seem to go into spasm at times of a flare up which is very uncomfortable and the only thing I can take to relax them is Lorazepam, this helps but obviously spaces me out a little for the day and not something I am keen to keep taking.  Any advice or feedback from the great forum would be appreciated.

    I've heard there are physiotherapists who specialize in releasing pelvic floor spasms. And I think helping you prevent them going forward. Maybe only in large cities, but it's worth a search...

    I wasn't sure whether the discomfort came from a severe fall from a tree, ladder and all while pruning trees, or that there was a connection with LS.  I went a couple of times to a masseur and that has helped.  While in the bath I still massage my lower back for a while, I make sure to sit on good support to relieve the lower back, in my car I have a special seat.  I have been watching my food intake - a balanced diet has proven to be important as well.

      Hi Sandra - thanks for the reply.  Was the massage of the internal mussels or external? I know there is some PT s that do internal massage to release the mussels but if general massage helps I would prefer to try that
