I have the same thing for 6 weeks. Am 54. Need to pee all the times, sometimes will get a little relief for a bit between times. No pain, no UTI. Having cystoscope done tomorrow. So frustrating so many have this problem. Just came out if no where, no other health problems. Please follow up with what's been happening.
It's nice to know I'm not the only one in the world with these symptoms! One would think so after being to a number of Dr.'s including Urologist, every month for the last 2 yrs! I've been treated for uti's, overactive bladder, and even had surgery for cystitis. I've taken Cipro, Macrobid, Oxybutynin, Azo, tried eating non acidic foods, etc. Nothing works! I feel the urge to urinate at least every hr., sometimes as soon as 20 min! I was able to sleep on my sides until about 6 month ago and now there is no way! I instantly feel irritated unless I sleep on my back. I have no pain when I urinate. It would be great to actually know what's wrong and quit wasting time and money.
I'm 37, on about year three of peri menopause. For years I have had the urge to pee as soon as I lay down( long before that started). Used to only be if I laid on my left side. Now only slight relief comes if I lay on my back. I always go right before bed, and get up at least once usually twice to "try" again. Never much is voided. I as well have no insurance. It seems vaginal estrogen works for a lot of people on here. Is it safe to use as I am a smoker ?
Dear EMello & others, especially RHR for starting this discussion and caythytn for maintaining it. I was going nuts with exactly these symptoms. Recently went through menopause. At times the sensation to urinate was so painful that I thought I was dying of bladder cancer. I reckoned it had something to do with my menopausal symptoms. So rather than go through the hell of a million doctors and tests I bought Ostaderm over the counter through Amazon. It works like a charm. My moods are much better as is my focus and it keeps the urination agony in check. Btw, the urination agony comes every three weeks or so and appears to be related to my body's inability to complete the process of having a period.
One thing that helps instantly is Advil. Gives instant relief unfortunately the relief does not last for more than 2 hrs. Estrogen cream is the answer. Get yourself some and spare yourself the excruciating agony of urinary pain.
sounds like my symptoms, what ever came of things? what provided relief? thank you
I'm sorry. I mint to text the Dr gave me Estrace. and I was surgically attached by minute attachments in two small but irritating enough places. i will keep using the estrace for 3 weeks and update if it is effective at removing the stitched adhesion as well as stopping the contractions or whatever horrible sensation it is.
