Does anyone else have this problem? I have severe DDD in my lower spine and for about a year it lead to extreme pain at night. It was so bad I could hardly sleep. I have seen many doctors, tried different pain treatments, and saw a physical therapist for a long time (about 9 months). I do my PT exercises daily and my pain is better. I still get pain at night but I can sleep till about 5 am...from 5 on the pain is pretty intense. So overall my pain is much much better than it used to be. Now my problem, which started about half a year ago, is that I have to get up and pee often at night. The back doctors have told me sometimes when you have back problems the nerves may be connected to your bladder and my start causing problems there. This is such a vague explanation to me. They said it sometimes happens. I went to a urologist who ran tests to rule out other problems and then had me try medication which did not work. He gave up on me and basically said he didn't know. I do not drink anything past 5pm now. I only have a cup of coffee in the morning after I get up and I am not giving that up. I have no coffee in the afternoon. I am not drinking alcohol. I do not have diabetes. But sometimes I have to pee 6x at night...and not just a little bit but a full amount. It's so weird. During the day I pee a normal amount. Before bed I will go to the bathroom. Then I might read 30m or so...I go to the bathroom again. Then I lie down and I swear it feels like I have to pee. I might go to the bathroom one more time before falling asleep. Then I might get up to pee 3 or more times in the night. It is so strange and I am frustrated that none of the doctors I have seen can help me with this. Also I'd like to get to the root of the problem not just medicate...although the medication didn't work anyway. Let me know if you have had this problem and if you were able to solve it. Thanks.
