For as long as I can remember I have peed a LOT more than anyone I know. Recently however I have noticed it getting worse. I just saw Harry Potter and was infuriated that I had to get up to pee four times during the film.
That incident has inspired me to do some researching and I think I may have an Overactive Bladder. (Diagnosing yourself using the internet is scientifically proven to be consistently accurate and helpful to health care professionals.) As a result, I have been keeping track of how often I pee.
Today I have used the restroom fourteen times in eleven hours.
I'm pretty sure that's not normal.
I do have epilepsy, and I'm thinking that maybe this might be somehow related to that or my medication (again, WebMD said it could be neurological, and the internet CAN'T BE WRONG!)
I get the urge frequently, I rarely feel like I don't have to pee just a little bit, but I've never had to run to the bathroom in an emergency, nor have I ever "barely made it". If I ever leak it's just a few drops AFTER I use the restroom. Only one time did I find a few wet spots before hand, and that was while I really had to go and was stuck in rush hour traffic. (I almost peed in a bottle). I have never wet the bed except for one time last semester when I fell asleep after taking some melatonin and slept through my first class the next morning. However, I was diapered at the time and I wasn't sure if I had wet it the night before or not.
I'm seeing my neurologist on Thursday for a yearly check up and I'm going to ask him about it, he might just send me to a urologist as a result.
My question to you, adisc community, is have any of you dealt with these kinds of symptoms, what was it, and most importantly, how was it treated. Medication, bladder training, diapers, etc.
I'm only 20 years old, so I'm hoping it's nothing to serious.
Thanks a bunch,
Saw my neurologist, determined that this is not related to my epilepsy or my medication. New appointment with my personal doctor for some tests. (Looks like we're going to try and rule out diabetes right away).
Thank you all for all of your replies! I'll update when I know more.
