Interstitial cystitis
I was tested and have Interstitial cystitis which is just another gift that Fibromyalgia gives us. I don't have the pain when urinating but do have the frequency urges especially at night; as soon as I lay down the pressure is there and is still there immediately after I go to the bathroom. Does anyone know of something I can do to stop the pressure? I would love to get some sleep.

I am taking Detrol to control the urinary urgency.  I was getting up several times at night also and it really is an annoying problem.

Here is the medication typically prescribed for your condition:

I hope you can get some relief soon.   Take care of yourself.
