I spent several months seeing a Urogynecologist and going thru various treatments including Gemtesia Mirbetriq ,tibia stimulation and finally a bladder sling that made my situation MUCH WORSE vs getting better. The sling was removed.
Then I read an article that noted many women with OAB also suffer severe muscle leg cramps, I too have had severe muscle spasms for over 3 years and no practitioner ever asked me if I had this??? Seems that women in the study a were found to be deficient in magnesium. It also noted routine blood work will not show a magnesium deficiency, there is a special blood test that needs to be done. So I started on 250mg magesium at night and minimal bladder leakage and OAB improved 90%!
