    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?

    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.
