Bladder twitching?

I was up all night last night because of this unfomfie twitch down there. I have never felt it before. I can't even tell if it is my vagina or bladder, but was relieved once went to the bathroom. It feels like it is twitching, like your eye may twitch.
Does anyone know what this is? Is it necessary to call the doc? Will taking a pain pill help it?

I need to slee...only slept from 4:50 am to 7:30 because of this bladder feeling....I am on two antibiotics and it doesn;t feel like an infection.

Bladder twitching?

Sounds like bladder spasms to me. I had them after my sling surgery. My doctor prescribed some type of medicine the turns the urine orange, but I do not remember the name of it.

I agree that they sound like bladder spasms. I am dealing with them right now. They gave me Ditropan to help stop them. I've been taking it for a week and so far no relief.

My dr did say that the bladder takes a lot of abuse during surgery and that we need to give it time to heal.

I take advil PM at night to help relax me so that I won't notice the spasms as much. Maybe that will help you.

If the spasms continue you should discuss it with your dr.

Bladder twitching?

I took sleep meds my doc prescribed to help me sleep through my bladder problems-no twitches, just inflammation and urge. It worked like a charm.
Your body needs rest to heal properly!:sleep:
Also, caffeine added to my problems. I was almost immediately improved once I quit my 2 cups of very watery coffee and went to decaf. Apparently my bladder was so feisty that's all it took to irritate it!! You might try that solution, as well.
Now my bladder has recovered from the surgery and I sleep fine with no help from meds.

Hope this helps.
Hope your twitching goes away soon, one way

Bladder twitching?

Did you go cold turkey on the coffee or did you gradually wean yourself off of it? I'm so afraid of getting withdrawal headaches that I am not sure if I want to go cold turkey on caffeine but I know that will certainly help the bladder if I do.

Cold turkey. But having the decaf coffee and tea to replace it helped psychologically! (heh,heh)
The headaches weren't too bad compared to the bladder irritation. The improvement to my bladder showed immediately when I stopped it.
