Re: Is this a UTI? Urethra spasms and...
I'm not a doctor, but this sounds like bladder spasms to me. I have the same problem and assumed it was either a UTI or Interstitial Cystitis, but after testing at the doctor's last week, I was told it was just plain old bladder spasms.
Ask your physician to look into this. Did he/she order a urinalysis to check for an infection?
I've got mixed incontinence and bladder spasms, and my bladder capacitiy is about half of what it should be. My weight and having had a hysterectomy is contributing to this problem too, and I may have to have the "sling" surgery.
I'm going to see another doctor on Monday and will ask his opinion about the new meds my uro-gyn gave me. After reading the package insert I'm concerned that it may conflict with other meds I'm already taking.....so I could be back to square one as far as these bladder spasms are concerned!
