Discussions that mention ditropan

I know this was posted awhile ago, but I just wanted to give my $.02.

I had this EXACT SAME PROBLEM about a year ago and I was going INSANE. I couldn't even sleep because I was constantly up and in the bathroom.

I had all the tests. No infections and no signs of IC. I was finally put on Ditropan XL (for overactive bladder) and while it helped a tad, I still had this constant awareness of my bladder. Sometimes it felt as though there was a water balloon sloshing about inside my body. It was awful.

Then, about 2 months later, I felt better. I still had to take the Ditropan, but I actually felt better. It was amazing! Things were fine (as long as I took my Ditropan) for 7 months.

Then, just this past week, I've been experiencing some symptoms again. My urine test was negative for bacteria. I'm taking the Ditropan XL. SO what now?

This is absolutely awful and incredibly frustrating because it seems there is no rhyme or reason for it, and even the docs seem at a loss.

Anyhoo, I just wanted to share so that you know you're not alone. I understand the frustation coupled with feelings of hopelessness.
