I am so fed up with my bladder. It was that which welcomed me in the first place to the wonderful world of MS. I was diagnosed with an overactive bladder and put on solifenacinabouy 4.5 years ago. I also had trouble emptying and I succeed but it can take me 15-20 mins!
The solifenacin helped up until last July when I had a very nasty UTI and afterwards I started to feel these horrible urgency feelings again even though my bladder wasn’t full. I had re-trained my bladder to go about 6 times a day instead of about 14 but now I’m going more frequently again.
My consultant has tried me on other meds but they have not worked and I need to see him to find out what else I can do but the appointment is not until April.
What I really want to do is try LDN as I have heard from a number of people who say that it helped their bladder problems. I am so fed up with how long I spend in the loo every day and it does tie me to the house a lot. As I said to my hubby - he probably spends maybe 3 or 4 mins in the toilet a day having a pee, I probably spend more than 2 hours altogether.
Anyway, needed to vent and ask if anyone has a similar problem and do they have any advice? I’m thinking that probably more lesions have developed in that area of the spine which are playing havoc with this problem again.
Sorry for the long, ranting post but this is making me really miserable!
