i did my voiding diary and wondered is 15 times a day of voiding alot?
Most time i go 75 cc at a time but it feels like i have a full bladder. And right after i go it feel like i have to go again but i would hold it as long as i could.
And is there anything you can do to help with the feeling of having to go when your in bed? this is the worse time for me during the day i can live with it little bit better but at night it drives me crazy. Not to mention the pains that come with it.

Yes, 15 times a day is a bit excessive. They say a "normal" voiding pattern is 7 times or less per day, and 0-1 time per night. Also your symptoms of always having to go, even right after you've just gone, are pretty typical... I get that too.
As for the nocturia (night urination), I found that taking Atarax before bed helps... and a pain pill too if I am flaring.
I hope you feel better soon!

I would ask your doctor if there is something you can take to help you at night time. I use to get up 5-6 times now I only get 1 time and sometimes none. Best wishes,

If we're uncomfortable at all, it seems to get worse when we try to lay down and relax --- I think it may be because there are no distractions. I know that if I'm flaring, nights are my worst time and I sometimes just give up and go downstairs and watch TV.

thanks for replies i will ask my doctor when i see him may 5th.
I'm making list of stuff to ask my doctor list is getting longer!
When laying down i try to think of other things but sometimes it gets very hard to get your mind on something else.
Plus i get alot of lower back pains and hip pains.
specially when riding in a car or sitting on a hard surface.
