    can skin "issues" trigger spasms?

    I have an SP tube and have problems w/leakage thru the urethra, which causes redness, inflammation and sometimes sores. This can cause AD. But can it work the other way around? can skin like this trigger a spasm?

    It might. A spasm can be a reaction to a "gee, this hurts or is annoying", even though you can not feel it. Have you tried working with a WOCN or your physician on possibly taking some medication that may be able to control this?

      thanks! that's good to know, and helps me understand my symptoms. yes, I've gone through the whole anticholergic (sp?)routine and the gears of my cognitive processes are rusty as a result. sigh.

        Sorry to hear that. I know that can be frustrating. There are some non-anti-cholinergic drugs out there which might help. I would at least talk to my urologist abot it.
