Bladder Spasms

These are descriptions of how individuals experienced various symptoms during withdrawal. While everyone's withdrawal is unique and symptoms will be different for everyone, it may be useful to know what others went through.

All withdrawal symptoms can be caused by things in addition to withdrawal. If a symptom is persistent or you are worried by it, it is always a good idea to get it checked out by your doctor to ensure nothing else is going on.

What I've Felt:

"I felt like my bladder was the size of a Skittle. Besides needing to urinate frequently, I felt that every trip to the bathroom had to be made in haste or I might piss my pants. As a result, I ended up urinating in some pretty sketchy places: in the bushes near an ATM machine (I couldn't make it the half-mile home), alongside busy expressways, in the water at swimming holes or at the beach. This symptom, for whatever reason, is worst right as I'm waking up in the morning. While I may be up and down two or three times during the night, I'm usually up two or three times an hour between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m." - Matt

What I've Felt:

"Bladder problems OMG! This was by far the most annoying and physically painful symptoms. This started on day 5 after quitting Klonopin and stayed with me for four months! My bladder literally hurt and I had a feeling of a strange, painful awareness of my urethra. Ouch! I probably had 20 urinalysis during this time. All normal. This one was strange. It was constant for at least the first month and then it would hurt for an hour and then be fine for an hour, then hurt one day and not the next. It went on like this until the end of August and it hasn't bothered me since. Knock on wood." Alli
