111mk, HiIve been having urinary urgency symptoms . I have NO

Customer Question

Ive been having urinary urgency symptoms for weeks. I have NO UTI though.
This has happened to me before. Last year I had a sonogram of the kidneys, cystoscopy, and even went to obgyn for sono of the ovaries. Still, no answer.
Also, noteworthy is I noticed that I had the same problem last year at the same exact time. (July), and the year prior, (July). The symptoms last 2-3 months and go away. What could this be??

This sounds like you may have bladder spasms from a condition called overactive bladder. This may be treated with a medication like oxybutynin to see if this helps you should discuss this with your urologist
