  • Would ditropan help with a constant pressure?

    My main symptom in a constant pressure to pee and not much relief when I void - it feels like I still need to go right afterwards even though ultrasound showed that I am emptying normally. Are what i am experiencing spasms? Would ditropan help with this or does anyone with similar symptoms find relief with other meds?

    I've never taken it --- please let me know if it works for you. And --- yes, it does sound like spasms could be the problem. It feels like the bladder is trying to turn itself inside out.

    I hope you feel better quickly.

      Hmmm, yeah it doesn't feel like a sudden out of nowhere thing where my bladder is contracting very hard. It feels more like a weaker, but constant "tug" to go to the bathroom no matter how long ago I went, it's always there. Emptying gives me a slight relief sometimes but only for a few minutes max, at least right now - maybe I ate something I shouldn't have.

        That could be --- if you're already following an IC diet, you might want to keep a diary for a while to see if there might be something unusual that's reacting for you. How much water are you drinking? I try for six cups a day --- my uro told me too much is as bad as too little so I don't try to go much beyond the six.

          I've been taking ditropan extender relief for a few days and it is really helping I think. I gotta see if this can give me a lasting relief.

            Donna I have OverActive Bladder, think since I got IC, but this year started new pain before voiding, which went away after voiding..
            Last 5/6 months, I void, and pain still there.
            I have urethral spasms with this. So I tried those patches - worked great, took away the pain.
            Only did 1 patch/week, but put on my thigh, can't feel my skin now, stopped.

            I tried ditropan from UroGyn - it was OK but increased my urethral spasms. I have autoimmune autonomic neuropathy like most on here.
            I used to be able to tell if I had to go a lot or little - but now that has stopped. So I get very surprised when I void a huge amount, which feels the same as tiny amount.

            Only relief I get is taking a Uribel capsule or Urrelle tablet. Thanks for any help, Klassdg
