      Yes I have spasms

      I am not from Mississippi, but I do have bladder spasms . I also use heating pad and sometimes a b & O . The doctor done a urodramtic study on me he could not believe the amount of spasms my bladder registered.
      They use ditropan and the other medicine like that they all make me dizzy so I could not use them .
      Life is what you Make It .By being kind to every one and all creatures your life will be more pleasant. Live your life for GOD and if it were the last day you were alive becausse it maybe.
