DancingLight Posted September 19, 2004 Report Share Posted September 19, 2004 I am going a bit crazy from this symptom...mostly b/c it is interferring with my sleep.I will try to describe it and keep this short (not my strong point!).Once I wake up to pee for the first time at night, after about 4 hours sleep, then i can't fall back to sleep b/c i keep having to pee. sometimes i really do have to go, but sometimes i just feel like it...Here's the part that is embarrassing and really annoying. It's as if once i pee that first time, my bladder is so irritated it won't calm down. I feel like there is pressure all the time pushing on the pelvic bone or something. and, it feels very irritated externally too...like the nerves are agitated. I can't fall back to sleep b/c it literally makes me feel so agitated all over having that discomfort. it feels sort of like being aroused down there, but that isn't what is going on...it is coming from the bladder area...does this make any sense at all?so, i toss and turn. it still feels that way throughout the day, but more tolerable, i guess b/c i am not trying to sleep! i take ddavp and it is as if i am not even taking it. it is so strange. and once it starts to wear off (long before the next dose) i am so uncomfortable. and even after i take the dose in the morning, my bladder doesn't calm down, so i can't go back to sleep.i guess i don't really know how to even desribe this! has anyone else ever had a symptom like this???i don't quite know who to call....what kind of doctor or what could be causing this...any tips would help!i don't feel like calling all sorts of male doctors and telling them my bladder feels "aroused!" he-he! hope that made you laugh! b/c i am trying to laugh at this!my endo is not exactly very clued in about ddavp, pots or any of that so i don't know if i even want to go back. the urologist i saw sent me to the endo b/c he was completely baffled. but this is a new symptom. and it is happening every day...thanks for any advice/tips/insight! this symptom is unbeleivably annoying....i have no idea why!emily Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
