Off and on for a year now I have been having INTENSE bladder spasms only at night when my body starts to relax. They are so intense that I cannot sleep at all some nights. Common medications like AZO do nothing. I've been to the doctor twice and both times I was diagnosed with a simple UTI. The Cipro and Bactrim helped for a few days, then the symptoms returned before I had even finished the antibiotics. I will go for stretches with no problems only to have the spasms return again. I have noticed that carbonated beverages aggravate symptoms, which makes me believe that I may have innerstitial cystitis. But why only at night?! I am fine all day, but as soon as I start to get ready for bed and start to relax the intense pressure returns.
Please help! I am miserable! I will go to a Urologist, but I am scared it will be another dead end. Any clues would be appreciated.
