I've been doing a lot of reading about the issues I'm dealing with re: my bladder. The info and suggestions on the Mayo website were pretty illuminating. Inflammation is a key cause of pain in an overactive bladder. One thought led to another: if CBD is good for arthritis and pain resulting from inflammation flare-ups especially during weather changes why not try it for what I am dealing with? Bingo!
In 24 hours after taking a high quality CBD I went from getting up sometimes as much as every hour to void (at night-- so even more during the day at my worst) to 2x at night and every 2-4 hours during the day. I am pain free. I no longer feel like I am peeing hot lava The pain is gone. Completely. Of course I still watch what I eat and I haven't had any sugar nor alcohol in a long time (nor good NM green or red chile) but the only thing I have changed is that I take 35mg of CBD in the am and Pm.
It's like a miracle.
I can walk for an hour without having to stop at my house to pee. No more bladder spasms. When I read that women who deal with this feel pain when their bladders start to fill up they void excessively to be rid of the pain I began to think more about what I could do to change this awful cycle. Two urologists and $1000s in useless products and physical therapy later I have finally found the answer.
Christine Kent (Whole Woman) needs to explore this avenue. I feel badly for women who are dealing with similar issues with no hope in sight
