Customer Question

I lose urine when I wake up every 2 hours at night and also if I take a nap in the afternoon before I can get to the bathroom. Is a urologist the right kind of doctor to see?

Greetings.

Welcome to the site.

Well, this could be due to Overactive bladder or Neurogenic bladder, so in order to confirm the diagnosis you need to get yourself checked by a Urologist and get yourself physically examined and get Urodynamic testing done.

Kindly see the links below for better understanding of these terms.
