Overactive bladder causes a sudden urge to urinate. The urge may be difficult to stop, and overactive bladder may lead to the involuntary loss of urine (urge incontinence).
If you have an overactive bladder, you may feel embarrassed, isolate yourself, or limit your work and social life. The good news is that a brief evaluation can determine whether there’s a specific cause for your overactive bladder symptoms.
Its a condition that affects millions of people globally.
Symptoms of OAB include;
- Frequent urination, defined as urinating eight or more times over a 24-hour period.
- Wakeng in the middle of the night to pee more than once (a condition known as nocturia).
- Inability to hold your urine.
- Accidental leaking of urine from sudden urges (called incontinence).
