How about frequent urination

I mean every hour and then some....24/7 for 22 months now. Personally, I think it's tied to the Humira I switch to at the that time from 7 years of Remicade. I jst figured if I don't have to have mouse in me - why should I?

The Humira hasnt made me feel better or worse than the Remicade - 5 minutes every two weeks beats 3 hours every two months - the shots (i dont use the pen because I flinch with that) are fine.

I think the CD has been in remission for a long time - doc says no - drugs are keeping it in check. I push the envelope on dosing and time in between - never have a problem.

But the P'ing is killing me - have not slept in 22 months - sleeping pills dont work. have tried every drug you see on TV - nada. Urologist says I am terribly inflamed in my bladder - well gee that's a surprise - check out my gut pal! Read a lot of threads on P'ing and CD - none on drug reaction....

That must be terrible :(

Are you negative for UTIs? Have they done a CT Scan or MRI to check and see if anything is pressing on your bladder or in some way interfering with your kidneys? I assume they evaluated you for diabetes?
yes - been tested for everything - going to do a colonoscopy to see if perhaps inflamed (although I feel just fine). No one has a clue as why i am P'ing so often - have had shots of botox in my bladder to calm it down - no luck with that aggressive treatment - specialist at NYU in NYC in urinary voidance - like going to Mayo or Cleveland Clinci - he is baffled.

Almost two years of excessive urination! That's a long time! Please visit a urologist for a checkup. I know how terrible it can be, because I've spent sleepless nights thanks to an enlarged prostate that causes excess nighttime urination. I took Super Beta Prostate and noticed a definite improvement in my symptoms. If you wish, read up on a Super Beta Prostate review to get more information, but don’t use it without consulting your doctor first. I hope you feel better soon!
