i have had a deep pore on my back on my right shoulder blade for years that inflames every couple of months and any discharge (that i feel comes from VERY DEEP within the muscle) as one would expect, really smells but my question also relates to terrible head/neck muscle pain /migraine i also get relating to this same muscle /shoulder /neck- for which i pay privately to have regular physio, manipulation and massage to help relive the tension. might the deep pore inflammation be causing the muscle to tighten /spasm ? i also have a permanent spot? i am not sure what it is at the base of the skull… .that gets very tender and swells in association with the muscle/neck pain my GP dismissed me when i even mentioned that the smelling deep pore was an embarrassing re occurring problem to me and that i felt anxious that it would erupt or smell when i was undergoing physio or even if i had a massage etc several massage therapists have commented on it and that too makes me anxious and embarrassed this has been going on for at least 4 years… i just feel that the inflammation / infection from the pore and the swelling on the base of my skull and the resulting pain /migraine from the muscle from my shoulder to the neck/head are linked in some way. the GP has given me diazepam to help relieve the tension that causes the pain but i wonder if the inflamed pore is at the root of the cause
hi i have a involantary muscle grip now and again of the pelvic floor it is as if i have gripped my muscle; and i haven't. it just happens as if i was doing it deliberately. is it likely i have an infection? i have been diagnosed recently with a dry vagina. could there be a connection?
Hi Kate, the involuntary muscle contraction sounds unlikely to be the result of an infection. In the case of Vaginismus, the muscle reflex is often in response to a particular stimulus, usually attempted penetration or the thought of penetration. It could be stress-related too or due to discomfort from the dryness. Here's more info about Vaginismus http://pelvichealthphysio.blogspot.ca/2013/10/vaginismus-muscle-reflex-sex-pain.html.

When a girl masturbates how long does it last and do you have a mini spasm while doing it and can it be anytime of day and are you meant to feel like you need a wee afterwards? Please someone reply, Lauren, aged 15
that mini spasam is called an orgasm, so don't worry, it just means you're doing it right. and you do feel like you need to wee afterwards yes, it's female ejaculation. you don't have anything to worry about :)

Hi I'm 22 years old and have been having sever abdominal pain for about 4 years now, I sometimes get pain during sex and some bleeding after, not always but sometimes. There is no trigger to the pain but stress makes it worse. I have had two laposcopies, scans, colonoscopy, cat scans, blood/urine tests and a CAT scan, all came back clear apart from a non harmful csyst on my ovaries during my first laposcopy but nothing on my second. The pain is completely across my lower abdomen but can make it painful to breath deeply if I don't take painkillers within a couple of hours from when the pain starts. It comes on very quickly and the only pain relief that works is oramorph and tramadol, I have tried tens machines, muscle spasm tablets, antidepressants and councilling. They still do not have a diagnosis and just keep discharging me to a pain clinic. When I get this pain I just end up curled into a ball because laying straight hurts too much and makes me feel sick, I throw up because the pain gets so bad if I don't take painkillers but now the doctors have refused me them because of how long I've been on them! I constantly need to go to the toilet, if I dont I end up leaking (side effect of the morphine as it made it hard to go so I had to push a lot just to wee ruining my pelvic floor muscles!) and am constantly cold! Can any one help?
