For 2 years, I've had constant mild urinary incontinence. I'm certain that it's urine, and I think it would be classified as stress incontinence. My pelvic floor muscles seem fine- I can stop urine flow at will, but small amounts leak out constantly throughout the day. I don't have frequency or urgency. It happens if my bladder is full or relatively empty. I'm not overweight, I don't do a lot of heavy lifting, I've never been pregnant. I don't know what this could be. I've always had very good control over my bladder before this. I've been to two GP's, they both won't refer me to a urologist (giving weird excuses like "they don't see people as young as you!" which I know isn't true, children and young adults see urologists, too.) My GP's and urgent care doctors just throw antibiotics at the problem, thinking it's a UTI. (They always test the urine- sometimes there's bacteria, sometimes not.) Some antibiotics help and the symptoms go away for a month or two, but usually, they don't help, and I'm out 30 to 50 dollars. Now I have a lot of abdominal and back pains, but I'm not sure if they're related or not. I'm sick of being abandonded by doctors, and I wonder if anyone else has faced something like this. I'm scared there's some sort of mass pressing on my bladder or something.
