I was diagnosed with Graves' disease over 15 years ago and had thyroid removed. About 7+ years ago I began feeling just awful- couldn't stay awake was always chronically lethargic and bagan hurting literally all over. My life stopped. I slept sometimes 36 hrs only to then stay awake for a few hours. I gained 50+ pounds was terribly forgetful and seemed to have "no mood" at all. I was diagnosed with Addisons disease- wich along with my Graves' disease became Schmidts Syndome or poly endocrine immuno insufficiency Syndome type 2. I also have severe chronic back pain, osteoarthritis, and among others fibromyalgia.
From this study (2 months ago):
I have been having bladder contractions every 6-8 weeks over the last 2 years. I have been to an urologist who has looked inside the bladder and said it looked excellent. I have also had many urine cultures done which have come back negative. I have seen my GI doctor who just prescribed nortriptline to help calm the colon thinking this would help the bladder. I do not have colon pain. I have also seen an obgyn who gave me a vaginal cream to possibly help the bladder. No one seems to know what is causing the pain. I do have some urine retention at times but no burning while urinating. I am now wondering if it is a side effect of one or more of my medications. Thank you
