I'm up at 4:30am writing this with pain and urges to go to the toilet. This has been going on mostly all my life but more so in the last two years. I constantly feel like I have some sort of cystitis. Sometimes I have it throughout the day but mainly it's at night time. I went to the doctor and he basically told me he did not understand what I was going on about. This is keeping me up at night. I explained that alcohol can make me feel this way as soon as I drink it and he looked more confused! Does anyone relate to this? I have stopped drinking caffeine and alcohol and this improved my symptoms over the last few weeks but now I'm up again tonight with the pain of feeling like I need to pee but I don't need to go. Does anyone have any idea what this can be? It can't be bacterial as I tend to just have it at night and then I'm fine for most of the day. If I drink more then I keep needing to go the toilet every few minutes!
