Customer Question

Hi, I've been having urinary problems, at night I can't. Hold my bladder, I never had this problem as a child, but now I'm 18 and it has become overbearing and I'm scared, I don't know what to do.
JA: Do you keep personal medical records to help track this?
Customer: No, but it can happen in several days in a row, and when I try to stay alert, but barely sleeping it still happens, sometimes I t stops for a week or two
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I was born premature with asthma, but over time the symptoms went away so I don't have breathing problems nor do I use the inhler. I'm a female, and I've never engaged myself in sexual activities.

Sorry I would not like .to be called
Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

I am sorry you are having a hard time holding your bladder

you could be having spasms of your bladder muscles and overactive bladder muscles

there are prescription medications which can help with this

but you have to see a doctor or urologist specialist doctor to get some testing and evaluation.

are you willing to see a doctor about this?

I've been very stressed aswell, is that part or..? I've been dealing with this for a few years now, and it has gotten worse this year, do you know any doctors in the u.k that can help?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

severe anxiety can cause nervous bladder symptoms and bladder urgency.

you should see your GP doctor first for evaluation

talk to your GP doctor about medications to help decrease anxiety symptoms

and medications to treat overactive bladder muscles. like hyoscyamine, oxybutynin
