    Unhappy Help Me.

    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.

    If you are showing diffirent symptoms from your previous problem and the medicine prescribed no longer works, I suggest you take another trip to the doctor. You'll be very lucky to find someone on this website that knows how to help. We're not doctors after all. I hope things get better for you. Good Luck.

    at 19 you got this?
    in days gone by with symptoms like these (and just having come back from liberty in manila), the Chief might give you a short-arm inspection (looking for a osze or discharged from the end of your little buddy when your four-shin is pulled back). indicating a sexually transmuted disease of some sort. but one would think your Doctor already looked for that..... didn't he? not having a little-buddy any more myself i just leak. but i do understand what your feeling there, Small.....
    does by chance your discharge have any bad smell?

    It sounds like -somewhat- of a bladder infection.. I have a tendancy to get those a lot, so I know how the urgency and frequency can be. Almost to the point of living in the restroom due to it.
    I'm not a doctor of course, and diagnosing something long distance is difficult anyway, but I do however agree with SleepingBlueWolf; you should see a professional. You may be able to dig something up by Googling a phrase with "Webmd" at the end. WebMD is a website for online advice towards finding symptoms of health issues, (like erectile dysfuncion, info about a womans natural cycles, etcetera). Try that if you like, I recommend giving this a go too:
    Here's a direct link for the SymptoSymptom Checker from WebMD. Check Your Medical Symptoms.

    A UTI was my first thought too. Take a urine sample to your doctor and ask for it to be tested. You may need nothing more than a course of antibiotics. But a UTI should not be left untreated as you risk kidney infection and eventually, kidney failure.

    I went to GP. My prostrate is inflamed and crushing my urethra. Aparently my father had/has similar issues and is at wits end. Unfortunately my father and I do not really talk to each other much. I had no idea. Sleep deprivation is setting in and it sucks. It is 2 am and I still have. ot slept.

    I would suggest going to a urologist as well. Most GP's have little or no knowledge in this area. Many of them will simply push pills on you and hope for the best. I had a doctor push anti-depressants on me when I went in for neck pain and stiffness without even looking at my neck. The pills caused seizures and all kinds of other issues. Later I went to another doctor who actually looked at my neck (x-rays and MRI) only to find out that I have 1 bulged disc, 2 herniated discs, and spinal cord compression. Do yourself a big favor, and don't take the word of one doctor; go to a specialist!
