Last night, I experienced multiple orgasms beginning while I was sleeping at about midnight. They continued for at least a half an hour and were very strong and exhausting. They finally subsided around 12:30 after much walking around. I went back to sleep and they started again around 1:00am. This time they lasted for about 45 mins. Happened a third time at 2:30 for 30 mins. Finally took a muscle relaxant and they subsided. Coincidental? I know I shouldn't complain, but they were actually painful and VERY strong. I have always easily climaxed with my husband, so I don't think that is the problem. We have sex regularly, too. I am almost 45 and have an FSH of 48, so my doc says I am in menopause. Is this "normal" and/or a part of menopause?
Spontaneous orgasm or muscle twitching, contracting and relaxing is not a part of menopause. Your pelvic muscles seem to be contracting and relaxing on their own. This can be due to pudendal nerve irritation or compression. The diagnosis is generally by a MRI or CT scan or by Pudendal Nerve Motor Latency Test (PNMLT).
Other possibilities are deficiency of potassium, calcium, sodium, vitamin B complex, or vitamins B1, B3, or B6 and Vitamin D. Along with blood levels of these get your kidney function, parathyroid gland function and adrenal function tests done because these affect the electrolyte balance in the body. Stress, alcohol, caffeine and fatigue all cause similar symptoms.
Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your doctor once. Hope this helps. Take care!
