1) Per index Spasm > Muscle which leads to M62.838 (the only other options are Calf and Back). Contracture is not a spasm but when the muscle and tendons shorten reducing flexibility. Spasms can lead to contracture but its further down in the disease process.

2) Per index Pain > Abdominal > Lower. I believe Pelvic works and I don't believe it wouldn't be wrong to use the default code.
