Bladder Spasms

Bladder spasms are involuntary contractions of the bladder muscle which can occur in men and women.

Cause

There are many causes of bladder spasms. The most common are patients who have an overactive bladder. Bladder spasms occur from overactivity or stimulation of the nerves to the bladder and in return can cause painful spasms. Indwelling foley catheters can also lead to bladder spasms. Passage of blood clots in the urine are another source of spasms. Non-urological sources can be constipation, diverticulitis, uterine fibroids, large ovarian cysts and pelvic tumors.

Symptoms

Symptoms consist of frequency, urgency, discomfort, abdominal or pelvic pain. There can also be leakage of urine from the bladder.

Detection

Detection is made based on patient's symptoms. Bladder spasms can last a few seconds to a few minutes depending on the condition and the patient.

Treatment

Treatment is directed at the focus of the problem. If there is a catheter causing the spasms, removing the catheter may alleviate it. Medications can be given to relieve the spasms and they consist of anticholinergics and antispasmodics. It is important to identify the primary cause and then treating that entity.

Prevention

There are some foods and fluids that can irritate the bladder and avoidance is essential. Caffeine, sodas, alcohol, smoking are the main offenders. It is important to prevent constipation by eating a diet high in fiber.
