    I woke up last night 5 times to go potty. Today I am in so much pain, that it really is making me nauseous. I can feel my bladder moving, my urethra is twitching...I am not sure what caused this. Nothing has really changed in my life over the last couple of days. I will call my PCP tomorrow to see if they can please test my urine for an infection. I am sure I dont, but I dont know what caused all of this.
    I have been taking my pain meds every 4 hours today so between the pain and pain meds I am getting more and more nauseous.

    Does anyone have suggestions of things I can try. I can't take a bath, they cause other isssues, I have the heating pad.

    I can't sleep because of the pain.

    I hope someone can help. Thanks for helping.

      Sometimes an frozen water bottle (I cover mine in an old sock) helps with the urethra pain which in turn helps with the bladder pain. I stress "sometimes" because sometimes it doesn't. But it's something to try. I hope you're feeling better.

        I'm glad you'll be checked for infection --- I suggest you also ask for medication to help with the nausea. The one I take is phenergan 25 mg tablets.

        Sending warm hugs,
        Stay safe
