Irritable bladder

Postby chookie » Mon Mar 05, 2012 5:40 pm

I remember my doctor telling me that along with IBS symptoms I also have a very irritable bladder, this was quite a while ago now. Today I received an appointment from the hospital to have a urine capacity test which involves tubes in various places :shock:

I don't drink too much during the course of a day/night as I would be on the throne permanently. What I do get is a slight irritation that is like cystitis that pops up now and again, lower stomach pains and a need to pass 'drops' of pee especially after I have just been.

Anyone else like this?

Yes, i had an over active bladder and had tests done at the hospital, i had a prolapsed bowel & bladder so had to have an operation.

They can give you tablets which can help stop any leakage but they dont always work. It is common with fibro because of the weak muscles.

i have never had any bladder problems before and would not know what cystitis was like,

unfortunately after reading this post this evening i have noticed a feeling in my lower abdomen like my trousers are too tight pressing on my bladder all the time even when i have been.

they are the same tracky bottoms i wear all the time so it is not any sudden weight gain, but is this symtoms of this irritable bladder or cystitis, as i said i have never had it before, and if it persists do i need to see a doctor or do i just get over the counter help from boots or chemist. it is a very irritating feeling i have just been and it is not so bad but stil there is some feeling there not of needing to go but suddenly being aware of something pressing on my bladder or abdoment.

thanks :-)

Hi animalhouse

With cystitis it normally burns/stings when passing urine and you get the urge to want to go all the time but once you get to the loo only a few drops come out.

Lower down pressure pain could be due to an infection? but drinking lots of water can normally flush it out.

You can get over the counter sachets to drink if you have cystitis.

If you still have it after a couple of days mention it to your Gp. :goodluck1:
