Is this a UTI? Urethra spasms and...

About 2 weeks ago I started to feel a little twitch/spasm in my vaginal/urethra area. It was not painful but more annoying. It would come and go. A few days later I started to get a few episodes of a burning, shooting pain in my urethra and still the spasms. Today, I started urinating quite frequently and when done my urethra hurts and feels extremely sore. My doctor gave me Cipro because she said it could be a UTI and didn't want me to suffer over the weekend. Has anyone ever these symptoms. When can I expect some relief and is there anything else I can do to lessen the symptoms. Thanks

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 I could be back to square one as far as these bladder spasms are concerned!
