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

I wasn't feeling good at all in the last 10 days, especially 2 days ago when I could not get back to sleep after urinating 2 times after 3:00. I don't know but apart from my condition, the thought that I could have developed a bladder infection came to me, I just felt the need to do at urine test mo...

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

Hi fobo. Yes tried amitriptylanie just 5mg at night. After a few days I felt incredibly sad and depressed and stopped. Imipramine with Deanxit really worked well for nearly a month and then wore off I guess. Not sure about getting it - in the US I guess you have to go to the doctor for all this, bu...

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

CMT23, you have already tried amitriptyline, if I am not wrong? When did you started and with what dosage? I found 15 tablets of 10mg that my father will not use anymore. So I started having half-tablet every 2 days at night. Does anybody know a place to buy it cheap online? I think in the Pharmacy,...

Re: Data

So far I've met 4 people on this site, and they are/were all IT......... The condition itself should not be related to the profession. The fact that we are here discussing might be related to it. I think its because "we" tend to browse the web extensively in search of answers and regarding this con...

Re: Kevkos - Here's my Story

Hi, Regarding point 8. (habit of tightening pelvic muscles ) - I can clearly feel that I do this although periodically, when I feel embarrassed or under pressure. For example when speaking in front of others, when doing an exercise in front of the class or when briefing to my boss, when becoming ang...

Re: Coffee and Caffeine

I have abstained one time for 3 weeks, apart from 1-2 episode of ejaculation while dreaming at night. I never have a symptom after ejaculation since I start complaining about this problem. Also days or even weeks go without me having a single coffee and frequency+urgency come and go. For example I s...

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

Thank you for posting your case Wolfcub. I know for sure I have a medium+ size Varicocele on the left testicle. It is detected on ultrasound tests and I feel it as a bag of worms there. But I never read anywhere of any urinary symptom related to it. I think Varicocele or Hydrocele are frequent condi...

Re: Frequent Urinating

Hello webslave,

I have noticed that when I pee little amounts, the urine is very concentrated. When I pee in bigger amounts it is always diluted (white colour). Is this the way the normal bladder behaves or its a behaver more classic for BPS/IC cases?
