Bladder Spasms

When to See a Doctor

Call your doctor if you have:

  • Pain or cramping in your pelvic or lower abdominal area
  • Pain or burning while urinating
  • Urgent or frequent need to use the bathroom
  • Leakage of urine

If you have or think you are having bladder spasms, it is important that you see a doctor for a proper diagnosis. Your symptoms may be due to an infection that can be treated. In rare cases, bladder spasms may be a sign of a serious underlying condition.
