Customer Question

Please help! My daughter is 10. She has been to many Dr's and have no answer. She has an appt. In July with a specialist, but we can not wait that long. She has a constant urgency to urinate. It is all she thinks about. She has been on antibiotics several times. They help, but as soon as they are finished, we are back where we started. She has had bloodwork, ultrasound of kidneys, and has been tested for uti and bacterial infections, all negative. This is a major disruption to her life. School is getting frustrated and so are we!
