Urology Care: Do You Have an Overactive Bladder?

Are you experiencing issues with bladder control? Maybe you chalk it up to nervousness or a temporary condition, but the fact of the matter is, if you feel like you’re going to the bathroom all the time and just can’t seem to control it, you might have an overactive bladder.

Learn how to tell by viewing the symptoms below. If you have any of these regularly or even if they come and go, it might be time to talk to your doctor.

  • It’s urgent. The feeling to urinate is sudden, overwhelming, and you feel like you can’t suppress it.
  • It’s frequent. You’re urinating more than 8 times a day.
  • You can’t hold it. You’re experiencing incontinence where a leakage or wetting accident follows a sudden urge — even if it’s just a few drops.
  • It keeps you up at night. You’re waking up 2 or more times during the night to urinate.

There are a lot of reasons why you might be experiencing these symptoms, but the important thing is that you seek help! There are treatments for Overactive Bladder that can partially or completely relieve your symptoms.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms and are seeking treatment, you can contact our Urology Services and make an appointment by calling 910-642-5832.
