Hello everyone.  I'm new on here and am so glad to have found this forum.  I've noticed that my OAB symptoms are worse when I sit down, has anyone else experienced this?

I find when you can go upto 70 times a day I'm better off moving and pottering around. Even through the night lying down irritates my bladder more.

Hope your flare settles soon.

My symptoms are troublesome at night too as it's hard to relax and fall asleep when you know you are going to have to get up in a minute to go to the loo.  I wondered if the fact that I'm going through the menopause has triggered this condition in me?

I always want to go, the feeling never leaves me, I find it "easier" in the day as I can distract my self, the same as Vicki I potter about, the night is worse as even when I do sleep I don't rest properly as I keep waking up to use the loo. Its a nightmare. When I was in my flare one of the worse things was not sleeping because as well as the frequency I had the burning agony to cope with as well.
The menopause didn't affect my condition I was no worse or no better going through it.

Welcome to a new member.  All of the answers you have had are right.  The bladder appears to react differently from day to day.  There was a time when I hated getting up in the morning because I was not in pain while I  was laying down.  Now even on a "good day" once I get into bed it starts. 
Rarely sleep before 2 am but I do take codeine now at bedtime.  This stops the feeling of needing the loo for a while. Some days are really great but some are too awful to bear, and I wish someone could explain why. It appears to have little relevance to what I eat or drink. Good Luck.
