No, not really.

It sounds normal or maybe overactive bladder

I would get checked to be sure but it sounds ok

Overactive bladder is not a problem? When does an overactive bladder happen?
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

Not really anything more than being annoying

It can happen to anyone at any time

What should I do not to have an overactive bladder? Any way to make the bladder act normal, not overactive?
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

You could try a low acid diet

avoid caffeine, spicy foods, pop, citrus

sometimes that helps

I tend to urinate 8 times a day with urination amount of 250 ml to 350 ml each time. Is it normal?
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

Yes, that is normal for some
