It's all withdrawal. These pelvic sx were my number one issue with Ativan. It was horrible every day. I have them again with the antibiotic setback. It's nerves and muscles. There are trigger points you can massage externally and internally to relieve the pressure and burning. I attended this clinic in Calif in 2006 when I was still on Ativan. www.pelvicpainhelp.com

But, it's the drugs that cause dysfunction. Burning and pain after urination or bowel movements is what happens. The muscles over contract. Leaking pee is the nerves being overstimulated or muscle contractions, as is the clitoral pain. The pudendal nerves are often involved. They refer pain into the rectum, butt cheeks, vulva, urethra, bladder, hips, thighs, and entire pelvic region. Look up piriformis syndrome trigger point release, too. Trigger points in the thighs and hips can tighten and keep tension in the crotch. Psoas muscles refer pain, too. Sometimes, getting inside is the only way to find the tight knots. You can massage them, but it's really just the drugs and withdrawal. Laying around makes it worse. It's a vexing problem, but goes away. We think we have infections or diseases we don't have. It's not menopausal, it's the drugs. Walking may help. Pelvic exercises may help. Hot baths help. There are good books about this, as well.

Can I ask you a question? Before I knew this was withdrawal, I got a treatment with an osteopath. And ever since my SI joint hurts! (it's a month ago now) Could he have done damage, or is this just the treatment in combo with withdrawal? My doctor does not think you can get damage that quickly. And they do not want to do a mri (because another one was clean so they think I'm crazy now I guess)

Look up trigger points for that. You can roll on a tennis ball and find painful areas ...usually the tight knots are next to or under the side of a bone. You'll know when you find them as it will be very painful. The area where the thigh meets the hips is crucial, too. Lay on your side and roll on ball. It will hurt, but if you can [...] that several times a day for a while your pain may subside. If it bruises that only means it was bruised underneath already. If a lump surfaces, it indicates you're pressing too hard. Getting an adjustment without releasing trigger points can really cause pain. Once the trigger points are massaged out an adjustment will hold longer.

Yep its!"$%"!@/?! Denise, all these sxs coz of stinking benzos??    :(  I get terrible rectum, anal  pain and spasms as well from it as well as having some not so  common sxs  but its definitely bizarre Benzo sxs.  :D There are definitely   way more sxs than already known about I'm sure going by some things that happened to me as well as the known or common ones.  :-\ And I'm really sorry that you got smashed backwards again after 5 year's and all your prior suffering??  l!! I hope you heal sooner rather than later my heart goes out to you  :hug:,

I spent year's getting made worse by more drugs followed by operations I never needed. But on wards and upwards, as its now a case of 'Never mind how and why it happened its what I do about it that matters now'', sometimes it helps to think that other times it doesn't but any help is gratefully received  ;D   I've tried Trigger point therapy and spent a fortune on alternative practitioners but 99.9% of it made pain and other sxs worse  :D :D :D Although some people find it helpful unfortunately I'm not one of them  ::)

By the way regarding my raw clitoris pain, one of the things Clona mentioned was Aloe vera being suggested to her, and I have an Aloe vera plant at home. So I applied Gel from the cut piece of leaf to my vagina and its really soothed my pain and the raw feeling I had,  I did [...] Organic  Coconut oil all day yesterday but it never gave me the relief the Aloe gel has. But put into a fat straw and shoved into the freezer than cut suppository size bits off and used the same way  works great for my hemorrhoids  and no hidden suspects in it  :thumbsup: I use it for at least a week when the hemorrhoids feel better to make sure.

  Since I was on 16.25 mg. of V I didn't think the 1.25 mg. cut was alot.  Its not 10% maybe about 7 but obviously too much for me.  I'm now at 15 mg. from 20 mg.  Its taken me over 3 months to get to this amount.   I am doing cut and hold so I am going to ask for liquid V next visit and do pills and liquid microtaper and see if I do better. I did speak too soon.  I just had to go and naturally the burning and pain started up again.  Not quite as bad as Sat. and Sun but bad just the same.  I can't walk much, I"m mostly chairbound as I am awaiting a spinal fusion surgery.  My MRI is awful, I do have legitimate problems, its not just the benzos causing the pain.  Anything I do takes much effort, even a shower.  Bathing might be too much, I"m scared I won't be able to get up from the tub lol.  I had a horrible gut infection and was hospitalized in 2011 and they put me on this poison then. Dr. said oh, keep taking it,its good for your back also and its such a low dose.  Yeah right.  Anyway, live and learn, I will never take another pill without it being life or death or until I research it thoroughly.  I don't trust Drs. anymore if they are still giving out this poison. I have a girlfriend on xanax and I am trying to warn her but she doesn't want to hear it.  thinks i'm a nut. Says I only take it at night to sleep and not every night and sometimes in the day on a bad day DUH.  I pray for her and all of you.  We will get off this poison and will just help each other.  HOpe day gets better for us all.

[...], I'm sorry that you've suffered this insanity, too. Glad you found something soothing. Rectal pain and vulva pain is horrific. It's a sensitive area and makes life miserable every day. It affects everything. I never had these issues before benzo anesthesia...then Ativan. Ugh. When muscles stay contracted for a long time there is a lack of blood flow. It creates an inhospitable environment in that area. Yeh, massage can aggravate the pain in some people, that's expected. For me, it's a charm. I don't understand why a small handful of benzoids get attacked in the crotch. It's so crippling since we can't stop urinating or having a bm. That sets off an all day crippling pain. My urethra burning left last week. It's back today. Yesterday my left butt cheek felt like a hot drilling into the bone and rectum. I rolled my left hip on a tennis ball...it went away. I wonder how many people get prescribed benzos after procedures where benzos are used as anesthesia. They're in withdrawal and get fed more benzos.

I had 50 sx return this time from Keflex. Stunned. But, I have about 6 now that remain and recently those are starting to slightly improve. Still horrible, but starting to have some hope. Today, left knee pain for no reason. Oh course it's on the left...everything is left sided. I was recovered for seven years and loving life. All of those sx went away at 21 months. Never again. No Rx for me. I'm done.

Hope you all recover soon, fellow pelvic pain peeps. One day it will be a distant memory, but stay vigilant...for life. You never want this again.

Have had some pelvic pain during tolerance withdrawal but only sporadic since being off clonazepam.   Seems like the people taking Ativan have the worst of the pelvic pain issue.  I only took Ativan for a few weeks from ER visit many years ago.   Hope you guys can work on this problem to resolution.  Be well

[...]...so, so sorry. I hope your surgery fixes your pain. Sacrum can definitely cause these sx. The nerves are so interconnected. When I roll on a tennis ball in that area it's very tender and I have no back issues. You may get much relief! I'll add you to my prayers.

Yep...good ole Ativan. It's poison.

  Well, I didn't develop this pain until this week.  I never had it while on the Ativan, I am now and have been on all Valium since March or April so who knows.  They are all poison.  Maybe since the V is longer acting its worse. Who knows.  Thanks for the prayers, much appreciated and will certainly keep you all in mine.  Right now I'm hanging by my fingernails and God and his goodness and prayer is the only thing keeping me going.  I have no one who understands what I'm going through, my family thinks I'm a hypochondriac but ever since that horrible infection that almost killed me it has been one thing after another and looking back probably all of it was caused by the ativan, other than the spine issues.  I had that previously.  Love this group.
