Customer Question

I'm having problems with urinating alot. I find my self going every 5 to 10 minutes. I hurt sometimes when I go too much. Especially at night I can't sleep because every time I have to get up to pee. I exercise alot but I can't anymore because when I do I hurt where they did my c- section inside and I have to interrupt my exercise with me go peeing every 5's like when I go or move alot it's when I feel a pressure that it feels like I need to go urgently or I will pee on myself... especially when I jump I fell like something drops inside in my vagina. I can't have sex either because it hurts. I have trouble sitting for a long time because my vaginas in there starts to hurt... Imight not comfortable anymore! I'm so desperately to know what it may be or at least an idea my bladders can't hold my peers anymore idk? My doctor wants to schedule me for surgery but hadn't done no specifically treatment.

Have you been out on any medication such as oxybutynin go for bladder spasms?

My doctor prescribed elmiron, but I couldn't afford it. She then prescribed amitriptyline but it only made me sleep and didn't help with the peeing or pain.

Him sound very suspicious for bladder spasms due to an overactive bladder. The first medication I would recommend is oxybutynin. This is a relatively inexpensive medication it should be much cheaper than the Elmiron. If you had not been into see a urologist, I would highly recommend that you see one as they will need to examine you to determine if you have overactive bladder. Hope this helps.
