    I have had a problem with spasming pelvic muscles for several months now. I have discomfort every day with feelings of pressure and pain in the rectal and vaginal area. But it's at night when I get the horrible spasming that is so very painful . I take plenty of magnesium before bed (as a laxative), so it's not because of mg deficiency. Who can explain this? Diane

    That is about the only place I do not get spasms. But I used to get them at night in my back, arms, shoulders, and feet.

    I do not get this anymore since taking ZMA, but you said you are taking magnesium.

    I would check with the doctor about this, it does not sound like FM spasms in that area. It could be something else causing this.

    Sure hope you find the answer soon, and let us know how you are doing.
