I have no pain when urinating and I have no weak urine stream - those are not symptoms I described.
I only have a cramp-like pain as if my BLADDER was swelling to contain the urine overnight - perhaps putting stress on the walls of the bladder while expanding? - and then deflating upon urinating
please mention your symptoms again?
Have you been to a doctor?
Hi there,Thanks for your question. Please be patient for a response as I may be in the OR or driving, but will get back to you ASAP.
I am a Urologist who trained and practices in the USA. Your symptoms sound like you are having a bladder spasm. However, this is odd to happen after you urinate. It certainly may be due to an intense contraction from an overly distended bladder throughout he night. You should probably see a urologist to do an ultrasound on your bladder after you are done urinating to see if you are able to empty your bladder completely. You'll need a prostate exam done to see if an enlarged prostate may be a cause of your symptoms. You should be screened for diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, and congestive heart failure as these diseases can cause urine overproduction at night. You may need to be started on meds for your prostate such as tamsulosin. Meds like Toviaz can be prescribed to stop bladder spasms. But the botXXXXX XXXXXne if, you need to be evaluated by a urologist to get to the bottom of this. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.
