Intense pelvic cramp during toilet/urination?

Hey everyone,

I'm just wondering if anyone can help shed some light about a horrendous (non-standard) pain I keep experiencing and what it might be related to.

Without TMI-ING at least once or twice a day when I go to urinate- mid way through I get this horrifically intense cramp in the middle of my pelvis- I'm not sure if it's my bladder or not- but it just creeps on and it's so intense that I have to stop mid stream.

It's almost like a intense pressure cramp feeling that just heightens the more I push. Imagine when you have muscle cramp in your leg or foot? Its similar to that but more intense...I had an ultrasound a couple months back which didn't show anything but my normal issues like #PCOS but the technician did notice that in between my external and internal scans when I tried to empty my bladder fully (as much as I could) that it was still very full on the internal probably not emptying properly which I'm already aware of. I've no idea if it's #endometriosis related- #polycysticovariansyndrome related- if it's due to surgery maybe healing taught- or if it's something else entirely. All I know is its so painful. It's not like normal uti symptoms- and is stronger than my usual #bladderspasms the pain is so intense I have to double over and gasp for breath and release all pressure of my pelvis. Still waiting for a response from last operation was in January this year and it's been since then- mainly the past 4 months or so...? I had #endo on my left ovary- womb and also on my #uterosacralligaments

Basically I just don't know. It passes once I stop attempting to urinate and last for about 10 minutes after but keeps happening. I'm already on #amitriptilyne and have doubled my #vesicare #solifenacin dose as advised by my gp which has reduced my urgency due to my #interstitialcystitis have any of you guys experienced this? I'm at a loss and not due to see gynaecology any time soon :(

Any ideas or help would be great.

Hope everyone else is having a pain free day.

  • Hi, I do not understand all of your abbreviations and as you have had several scans and invasive procedures done I would go back to basics and have your routine bloods checked again. This can see if there is any abnormality that would indicate infection. Also a high vaginal swab to screen for vaginal infection and a cervical smear. Also a repeat urine test for culture and sensitivity to screen for infection. Discuss these tests with your GP. I would suggest you get these tests done before your gynae appointment as knowing these results would help the gynaecologist decide on what further investigations need to be done. All the best and I hope you find the cause of your distressing symptoms soon.
