Bladder, tremors and UTI’s

Posted by thejae1 @thejae1, Sep 12 8:03pm

I was in another group about internal tremors and was told to try this group

I have had many UTI’s in the past but seem to be having bladder and internal tremors lately. I usually get up at least 4 times a night. I have internal tremors only at bedtime. Mostly they are caused by the urge to urinate. My new Dr is giving me a cystoscope Tuesday which I have had before. She is putting water i the bladder also this time. Has anyone had these issues? I have gone to many doctors. I hope this new one can help.

Did you get the results from the cystoscope? Any ideas to the root cause of your UTI and tremors?

I had a cystoscope with distinction. The Dr diagnosed me with Interstitial Cystitis.

I have had interstitial cystitis for many years. My pain ranges from tolerable to really bad, but I always know it's there. I urinate at least 10 times per evening, as my bladder always feels full. I have had two hydrodistension's. If your doctor didn't tell you about the IC Diet, here are the basics. No acidic foods or drinks, specifically, no coffee or tea, (even decaf), no citrus, no carbonated beverages, no chocolate except white chocolate. Coffee is without a doubt the thing I find most hard to give up, and it's also the most irritating thing to my bladder. Just when I start to feel a little better, I cheat and drink coffee. Full disclosure: I work at Starbuck's. I think the diet is very helpful and there are several easy to read books about managing IC. I will look up the name of my favorite and try to get back to you. If you are in a "flare" , eat very plain food. Baked potatoes, chicken, carrots, bread, milk (avoid rye bread for some reason).

I think that book may be unavailable, but there are quite a few on Amazon.
