I really just need some outside advice. I am a 25 year old female - 5'3 and maybe 117 pounds. Since about October I have been having the WORST time trying to hold my bladder. I went to the doctor (just my regular doctor) multiple times and they immediately thought "you must have a UTI" but surprise! I don't have one. Lately it has started to get worse and a little over a month ago I decided to visit the Urologist. They took a test and I didn't have a UTI.. Once again. I went in and had a cystoscopy done which I was so terrified for! I don't want to get into the details but it was not a pleasant experience. Once they finally got into my bladder, they saw nothing wrong and sent me home with pills that ended up making me sick. Now I am trying to set up another appointment but they are so booked up I won't be able to get there until the 29th of May which I scheduled back in April.
I am starting to get really frustrated that they want to just send me away with pills hoping they work and not wanting to find out what's actually going on. I'm a young woman and I can't even go a day without peeing myself, it's absolutely terrible and makes me so self conscious.
I'm thinking it's possible I have type 1 diabetes which my aunt has but no one else in my family does. Is that something that I can inherit?
If someone could just give me some advice I would be SO grateful.
Thanks in advance.
