I have Been having some major issues with nocturia (Night time urination) caused by my MS. The big issue is that it is nigh impossible to sleep when your bladder is screaming at you that your busting for a P and it is all the more infuriating when you were at the toilet five mins ago and it was not even a bloody drip then so you know for a fact there is nothing now either.
I have tried drinking more full stop as I am a bugger for dehydrating myself and had been advised this could be the cause. Let’s just say that did not work and move on. So I have tried limiting fluid intake in the evenings also very unsuccessful, things have now got so bad that my sleepers (zopiclon 7.5mg) are not even enough for me to blank it anymore to get me to sleep and I have ended up crying, rocking and on one occasion punching myself in the head due to lack of sleep (8 days awake) and it is all because of my sodding bladder and it’s inability to quit.
My GP is next to usless and has run out of ideas how I can control it short of catheterization (won’t work at present) and I really can not keep living this way, i am far from nice when I am excessively tiered and as much as my Mrs understands and is fantastic about things it’s not fair that I take it out on her despite trying desperately not to.
This is really begining to beat me down now and I was wondering, no hopeing if any one has any ideas no matter how hair brained they seem on other things I can try stop the ridiculous farce my bladder is insisting on putting me through on a Nightly basis.
