    Pinching pain?

    I have been in a flare for the past couple of weeks and I think it is getting better (yesterday was a good day), but today I noticed a pinching pain. I don't have a bladder infection.

    I did take my vistiril and Tramadol today and it helps a lot.

    What is the pinching? Is it the bladder muscles spasaming?

    Just curious. What helps for the pinching pain? I know the Rx version of Pyridium 200mg really helps a lot with pain too.

    Pinching sensation seems very common though I don't understand exact cause, at least you're not alone. I get severe urethral burning and the occasional sensation of a hatpin in my bladder that I could do without. Lol.

    It sounds like bladder spasms. They can be described in many different ways.

    I can relate to the pinching and sometimes it feels as if I am being peirced inside. Deep inside, like I can't get to it if I tried. I think they are spasms as well. For me, B&O suppositories help with that most of the time. I usually get so flustered from the pain it takes me a while to calm down and remember to use them but when I do the pain usually subsides at least for a while.

    Elmiron helped bladder, not urethra, still it's something.

    Love, H.
