I have had problems with urinating. I have to go several times a night and I'm lucky if I can get 1 0z out-with the attendant problem most times that I cannot go right away.
So far-this description is fairly typical of common problems with this condition. But what I am about to describe is atypical so I thought I'd share. My alarm system that tells me I have to go includes both a feeling in the bladder but also profuse sweating from the waist up to the point where my top(T-shirt) gets totally wet and my mouth goes dry-I mean totally dry.
I had already posted once on this forum if anyone experienced these same very unpleasant symptom, and there was no response. I also got a referral to Board Certified Urologist. Ihave Type 2 diabetes and I asked the Urologist the following question. The question was: Have you ever had a patient who had the sweating symtom and susequent really unpleasant dry mouth when I felt the urge to go. His answer was "NO". His diagnosis was my Type 2 diabetes aggravated my over-active bladder & prescribed oxybutynin. For my condition it should NEVER be prescribed as is shown in the link I have provided.
My other post to this forum about these symptoms, as I mentioned, went unanswered so I thought my condition was rare or peculiar. A fairly good Google search on night time over active bladder yield little if nothing on my problems.(I should mention;my problem ONLY shows when I'm lying down(supine position) There is practically nothing(zero) on thne Internet EXCEPT for this which was a bull's eye:
This article at this link explains exactly what I have been suffering from for almost 8 years. I am going to go see in Boston to a "neuro-urologist" who deals with "Autonomic diorders" of the bladder. This article was where I found the admonition to NOT use the oxybutynin if you had my symptoms.
I finally have some hope & I hopes it might help anyone experiencing fairly similar symptoms. And I also think it is a perfect example of how important it is to be your own advocate!!
