Thread: Bladder driving me bonkers

    Default Bladder driving me bonkers

    Well I absolute HATE my bladder being so unpredictable and no answers and driving me completely bonkers well started when I did my back in 2009 and have diagnosis of Degenerative Disk Disorder and compressed nerve at L5-S1 as well of course Incontinence because of back.

    My bladder is not consistant or predictable which is driving me nuts as I am both OCD as well as Asperger's Sydrome which have issues with things being out of order and need consistancy on top of that numerous Anxiety disorders and Bipolar type 2Bladder behavours inc but not consistent dripping, spasms, becoming painfully full and very rarely wet when I sleep( and not that much leakage).

    Also when I pull depends underwear up it is usually damp/wet but don't feel that i l"leaked and its been a cool day.I'm kinda confused what to do because with my g.p not having any answers and don't have a urologist and on the waiting list for my local hospital continence Nurse.

    I wonder if there is any way to make the bladder consistant and not spasm or painful*I wonder if there is any way to make the bladder consistant and not spasm or painful (even if it means no controll( leak all the time) as I doubt I will ever have full control sorry if this offends any one,Hopes this makes sense *

    You do make sense. I'm glad you told us of your various disorders. That way no one should jump on your run-on sentences, and just accept you for being you. That said, I think you've diagnosed your problems quite well. I do think you need a specialist such as a neurologist. After back surgery, I couldn't pee and I had to catheterize myself, which for me, was far worse. I had to catheterize myself at least four times a day. Things finally began to work about a month later.

    I had to see a urologist for those problems and I think that may be who you will have to see. Obviously, your bladder problems are tied into the nerve damage in your back, hence the neurologist, but a urologist might be able to provide medication for the spasming bladder problems. I'm sorry that you have to wait to see one. That's one good thing about private hospitalization here in the states. You just make an appointment and go, often the same day. Good luck.

    A good friend of mine has similar back problems and takes a muscle relaxant to reduce muscle spasms. This helps a lot with jolts, twitches and with the cramps in his back. I will find out the name of this medication over the weekend if it`s any help to you. I do not know if this will help your problem though.

    Basically loose weight and strengthing exercises in that area. Thanks for the website will ask GP about some of the lm already take Valium for it but my pyschiatrist is not happy and I don't want to get addicted in it as I was original prescribed it for my anxiety and have seen people abuse it first hand my mother so have always been concerned taking them

    possibly, Lower Spine Stretches And A Pinched Nerve | LIVESTRONG.COM ?
    i've also found that when suffering from lower back pain after handling heavy weights or during transitioning between active and inactive periods, that a simple dangling from a doorframe and relaxing the lower portion of your body can release whatever's trapped (a bit of a jiggle helps, too, if you can manage it). obviously, though, don't do anything that hurts.

    Saw G.p asked what else to do regarding bladder issues she said she wanted to see if loose weight on the disc would solve it(me loosing weight as overweight ATM and stretches)as both past urologists have said nothing wrong with bladder.
    Now on going to wait til when I see the nurse and see what she says/recommends *

    I think you should ask to be put on VESICARE, which is a fab treatment for "overactive bladder syndrome", I was put on this and it made a huge difference with how often I was having accidents. It also reduced the frequency of needing to go. However, I have become incontinent on a neurological scale, as well as because of my degenerative disc disorder, so the vesicare does nothing for that.

    I'm on 10mg Baclofen x 4 daily for my all over body cramps and spasms, not sure if that would help with spasms in the bladder. I'm also on 200mg Quinine Sulphate for nighttime spasms and cramps. This MIGHT help too?

    The only thing to remember with muscle relaxants, is that I've found that they also relax muscles that I don't particularly want relaxing, such as my pelvic floor and my bladder - which is basically one big muscle isn't it? ......

    Do you suffer with spasms elsewhere in your body, or exclusively in your bladder?

    My spasms and cramps are mainly due to my ME and Fibromyalgia, possibly other neurological factors, they don't know yet.....

    If you want any more info from me, give me a shout either on the forum, pm me, or email at [email protected]
