Hi all, I have had problems with my bladder for about the past 5 or 6 years. My symptoms are loss of sensation to urinate from my bladder (I get the sensation to urinate from my urethra). This hasn't caused any incontinence and I've had tests etc and no problems with pelvic floor muscles etc! Even though bladder sensation doesn't seem to be working, I get a feeling of urgency from my urethra and I never fully empty my bladder so I tend to have to go frequently. I also have an extremely irritating night time routine where I go to the toilet before bed, lie down to go to sleep, and then have to go back to the toilet after about 10 mins to pass a very small amount of urine...I also keep getting urethral inflammation and UTIs. It is such a horrible symptom and it is really weird that I will feel an urgency or sensitivity to urinate and then only be able to pass a very small amount. My bladder has also become quite 'shy' and doesn't work very well if there are other people around and it's very quiet (such as in a public toilet and people are waiting). I have seen two urologists (prior to lupus diagnosis) who both just offered botox injections in my bladder or to self catheterize regularly (no thanks)! They said I've got a spastic bladder. I just wondered if anyone else has these symptoms as I have felt as though I'm the only one for years!
