Hi all
Just wanted to check in and say Hi, I haven't had hardly any symptoms for a few months now but the last 3 weeks or so I have noticed feeling the buzzing coming on and off again , also have to go to the bathroom more often than normal and in a hurry,  have also been more tired than usual but not exteme fatiuge like before.  So do you think that that is any thing ? what constitutes a relapes, how many symptoms do you have to have and do they have to be really bad because I feel quite good apart from these mild symptom but its just enough to sort of let me know something is still going on.  mmmm
what do you think,

You might want to check to be sure you don't have a bladder infection. It's not always obvious -- there isn't always the burning and itching that you might expect-- and your symptoms could indicate that (fatigue, buzzing, frequent and unexpected urination, etc.)

If you don't have a bladder infection, then it could be the beginnings of an exacerbation, or flare, and since you're not diagnosed yet with anything specific, it never hurts to call your doctor and tell him what is going on. He may not want to have you come in, but at least it should be noted in your records.

A relapse, or exacerbation, is usually defined as a new symptom, or dramatic increase of an old symptom, with effects lasting at least 24 hours (some doctors say 48 hours), that affects your ability to go about your normal daily activities. Lots of us have minor stuff going on all the time -- "residual symptoms" -- and wouldn't necessarily notice much change if what you describe started up for us...

but again, since you're in limbo, it never hurts to call your doctor, if the symptoms increase, or worsen, and you should be sure it's not a bladder infection. I hope you feel better soon.
