So for the past three years or so I have had transient episodes of discomfort with my bladder to the point I cannot sleep for weeks. I was diagnosed with overactive bladder by my GP when this all started and prescribed Vesicare. I think it sort of worked. I only took it for 3 months and then stopped because of the side effects. I found an old bottle of it and have been taking it again. No effect. Well at least no positive effects. Now I am thinking I do not have overative bladder at all. I guess I get frequency and sort of get urgency. My bladder does not get "crampy" though and cause any loss of control whatsoever. I just feel like I have to pee every 5 minutes. When I lay down my problem goes ten-fold. I just feel this pressure like I have to go. Sometimes I do sometimes I don't. I have had t keep a pee jug by my bedside for a year now. It takes me 2-3 hours to fall asleep because I have to relieve myself every 5 mins! Then when I finally get to sleep I wake up an hour or two later to pee again because I am in slight pain. I can't sleep at all... starts sobbing .
Any of you guys have any expierience this? I envy you incontinent folk because at least you can sleep through it. I have all the control of a continent person without the capacity.

Is this consistent with interstitial cystitis. I feel burning my urethra sometimes, but I don't feel any sharp pain. I just feel constant pressure/pain in my bladder.
