Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

I've tried four of the overactive bladder meds posted above and they basically just make it more difficult to urinate. The constant sensation of needing to urinate was never reduced. But when it came time to go, I was standing there like an 80-year old man waiting for the urine to dribble out. Havin...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Well we both have very tight muscles. I get the same comments when I get a massage / go to physical therapy. I would like to feel totally comfortable and be totally flexible with my muscles and see how my symptoms respond. I have done various stretching programs in the past and lost motivation when ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

It started when I was in the US. Saw some Urologists there. Then was in Australia for a few years. And then mostly Thailand since then. For me, there was never any stinging. It was during ejaculation and as if a switch had been flipped where instantly I felt the urge to urinate in the tip of the pen...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

I'm obviously no doctor, but if you're not waking up multiple times throughout the night, my understanding is that typical prostate and bladder conditions can almost be ruled out immediately. I feel like I have to pee all the time and actually pee once every 1-2 hours. But I sleep through the night ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Hey PizzaManGuy. Well take some solace in the fact that the people who recover for the most part completely forget about this forum and just move on with their lives. You are also in a time where there is much more known compared to 20 years ago. It waxes and wanes for me. Like at this very moment, ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

I think you're the first person who I have come across with very, very similar symptoms to my own. My symptoms started during ejaculation. That was 20 years ago. Don't want to freak you out, but it is what it is. The good news: 1. I know it can go away because it did. Right after it began I stopped ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

It sounds like all of our symptoms started in a similar way. Ray and Finallyover, can you please update your signatures so we can see more details and better help each other? As you can read in this very long thread, I have tried many, many things - they didn't work for me, but that doesn't mean the...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

I agree Urologists are useless unless something very obvious has gone wrong. If it's a virus, I don't see how it goes away like it did for you and like it did for me for a few months 19 years ago. I believe it's some interplay of muscles and nervous system. Because it's the pelvic floor and genitals...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

My symptoms started 20 years ago at the moment of ejaculation. Main symptom is a constant sensation of needing to urinate at tip of penis. Also frequency and urgency (probably every 1-2 hours). I don't wake up at night unless I'm in the middle of a huge flare. I now take 1mg Clonazepam with 15mg of ...

Re: Rectal Valium Suppository or Gel-Muscle Relaxant

Would also like to know if Valium suppositories have helped anyone compared to tablets taken orally.

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

You're definitely not the only one. I've been searching for 20 years and Urologists now brush me aside and basically imply that I am crazy. But I think I know when my body is screaming it wants to pee and I don't actually have to pee. I also has symptoms go away entirely for a few months and then on...

Re: Tramadol 100mg ER

Just wanted to chime in on Tramadol. It's often presented as completely safe because it's not a true opioid. I found that taking 100mg 4 to 5 times a day really cut down my discomfort. However, it drastically affected my mood, from almost manic to deep depression. I would also sweat incredible amoun...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

At the end of the day I probably need a complete lifestyle change and mental adjustment change True for many of the more intransigent, difficult cases. But as you say, very difficult to achieve (in my case, my dear wife was able to shoulder much of the bread-winning burden). I'm starting to serious...

Re: Extracorporeal shock-wave therapy and CPPS

Thank you for this. Please excuse my extreme delay in replying. Usually when I am feeling ok, I try to stay off the forum and when I have a massive flair, then here I am again looking for answers. Is this basically the same concept? https://www.storzmedical.com/en/disciplines/urology/product-overvie...
