I have had the worst couple of days, UGH!! I am beginning to think I may have a problem with an overactive bladder. The last two nights have been totally MISERABLE. I don't notice my frequent trips to the restroom as much during the day, but at night it is REALLY beginning to be a nuisance. Last night I lay in bed from midnight until about 5am, and I know I was up and in the bathroom probably 20 times during just those 5 hours, I kid you not... (Just to urinate, I wasn't awake with colon problems or anything, for once!!) Each time I would empty my bladder, and just as SOON as I would lay down, I would feel the urge to go again. There is no burning with it, as I've had with bladder infections in the past. (And I've had bunches of those!!) Just a constant urge to go. It is driving me BONKERS!! The only way I finally was able to get any sleep last night was when my colon started acting up about 7am or so... And I only slept then because the terrible cramping in my stomach kept my mind off of the constant urge to have to tinkleHave any of you ever experienced a problem with an overactive bladder?? And if so, is there anything that can be done about it?? Anything that works, I mean?? I've seen commercials for medications for this, but I wonder if they really work?? I believe I remember the side effects for this medication including diarrhea, which is something I REALLY don't need since I have a problem with that with my Colitis alreadyBut I'm about ready to take the D in exchange for a solution to this "Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now!!" problem that they sing about in that commercial, LOLI sometimes get this problem when I am due to start my period, by the way. I'll have a day or two of this, and then it passes. But my period isn't due for another 2 weeks yetSo I don't know WHAT is going on!! Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks, everyone!!
