I started with the symptoms in May. I can hold my urine, the bladder doesn't seem to be weak in that way. I had the sensation of wanting to wee all the time. Some days were worse than others. I had no pain with it most of the time, but now and again I had a burning sensation, not very strong.
I have had a full hysterectomy about 12 years ago, and I think I did have these same symptoms about 5 years ago, but it only lasted about 1 month.
I have been doing pelvic floor exercises , and been drinking loads of water. I have no idea whether that has helped, but for the last few weeks I have been much better. It was just that when I did weighted squats at the gym the other day, the symptoms came on again, but not as bad.
For the last 2 years I have been doing part time caring, and sometimes that can be a bit heavy, and I wondered if that had any bearing on it.
The doctor wasn't that helpful really.
Are you then of the opinion Doctor, that the weights are not relevant. I am happy if that is the case!
Also, I have read about a condition known as Interstitial cystitis, is this also a possibility, or would you rule it out.
I also have a feeling of discomfort when I wee sometimes, not cystitis, but as if the area that you wee from could be inflamed, but I don't have this constantly, do you think this could be connected, or has happened because I was weeing more frequently?
Ok, thanks for your help. Its back to the Doctor for the medication!
