hi i have kidney stones all the time. i pee before i go to bed but then go lie down and it hurts and feels like i have to pee again. so i get up and go to the bathroom and sometimes i pee alot like i just didn’t pee and sometimes nothing comes out. this could happen a couple a times in a 1/2 hour. i finally told my md and he gave me baclofen works wonders. not that i still don’t have problems but its better. some nights i’m up 3-4 times and sometimes not up at all. sometimes it feels like the muscles down there are ripping out of the sides very painful. get up from the toilet no pain??? sometimes after eating i have to pee so bad it hurts. our bodies are just amazing.
Dab, Have you been evaluated for pelvic floor dysfunction? Yes, our bodies are amazing, right? We can get all sorts of pelvic pain syndromes (everything from pelvic congestion syndrome to vulvodynia to interstitial cystitis to voiding problems to frequent UTI’s to chronic candida vaginal infections… need I go on?). Oh, we musn’t forget the occasional incontinence! Yikes. I recommend that most of us keep measuring strips to verify if the pain is a UTI vs. a possible yeast infection. It’s hard to imagine, but sometimes when ‘everything hurts’, differentiating the two can be hard. I’d HIGHLY recommend seeing a good urologist or nephrologist about those kidney stones, my friend! That is one thing they LOVE to help prevent, EDS or no EDS!
