you could have overactive bladder spasms of the bladder wall.

Dr. David :

antibiotics will not help with this

Dr. David :

you might need anti-bladder spasm medications like vesicare or donnatal

Dr. David :

which could help.

Dr. David :

you need to see a urologist about this

Dr. David :

or ask your GP about these medications.

Dr. David :

short term relief can come from taking pyridium which will numb the bladder and urinary tract.

Dr. David :

but will not help the bladder muscle spasms.
