Blessed,

I know exactly what you mean about having to use the bathroom 5 times a night!!!! I also wake up 4 to 5 times a night to go and I am terrified to go anywhere or do anything that I might not be able to use the restroom as often and I need to. I also feel like I have to go really bad some times and then when I go it is just a tinkle. I have had this problem for five years or longer, it drives me nuts!!!! About three years ago I woke up one morning and could not go at all, I finally had to go to a urologist. I take detrol, its seems to help a little bit. My whole family thought this was in my head. Finally after being sick of being sick I saw my gp who sent me to a neuro who did a mri and there is a lession on my spine which is creating the urinary problems, stiff leg problems and back pain I have. I have not been dx as ms, I am awaiting spinal tap results but have myelitis. The mussel relaxers I take for my back and stiff legs also help me to sleep through the night and not wake up every hour. Hope this helps a bit. Take care and best wishes
