Constant frequent urination- no answers from docs:(

Posted , 4 users are following.

So back in Feb I went to the doctors, as I felt like I was constantly urinating. When I was younger this was the same, but I always put this down to fizzy drinks or anxiety. UTI was ruled out, and I was even given some antibiotics. I had a blood test done to test for diabetes, kidney function etc, which all came back clear. At the beginning I was paranoid I must be pregnant, as there always seems to be quite a lot of urine there, however I am on the pill which I take everyday, at 5 o clock on the dot, and have had all of my withdrawal bleeds, and have all been very heavy as usual. I've been put on some tablets (vesicare) for now, as I am about to start my teaching placement. Has anyone got any experience of these symptoms??

    If youve pain soreness or heat along with frequency it could be intersticial cystitus, which doesnt show up in samples, more inflammatory than bacteria, and anti bs dont stop symptoms.  You could check out the c.o.b site, who specialise in cystitus overactive bladder. Hope they can help, they are good.

    Maybe over active bladder? The spinster muscles are loosening up not strong enough to hold the valve closed.

    Hey Louise,

    Very similar story to you. Frequent urges, up 4-5 times a night and UTI ruled out. Been suffering for a year now. I feel like I've narrowed the cause down to stress as it's worse when im working or when I'm in bed worried about the following day. I was prescribed Toviaz and told to do pelvic floor excerises and im on the list to see a urologist. The toviaz isn't great, lots of side effects and im not seeing the benefits. I feel like I need to work on my stress first and foremost at this point.

    Have you high stress by any chance? May be something to think about for you too. Feel free to get in touch smile
