Feeling like I need to pee all the time with no other symptoms

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello!

So about 6 months ago I got a slight discomfort down there and then felt like I needed to pee all the time. I went to get tested for a UTI but the test came back negative. Then I went to my gyno who said I had a strep B infection and gave me some antibiotics. However, meanwhile, my symptoms had left completely. This lasted for about three to four weeks. The problem was gone for about 6 months but recently came back. Thinking it was due to a strep B infection (as the time before) I went back to my gynecologist but the urine samples were clear and there was no sign of any urinary nor vaginal infection. My exact symptoms are that I often feel like I need to pee but it does not seem linked to my bladder, more so a feeling in the urethra. There is no other symptom like burning. It gets better some days but is mostly pretty constant. I've had this now for nearly two months and don't know what to do about it. Has anyone had similar problems?

Thanks!

    The tests for UTIs are not very accurate. You need to get tested again, ask for a more in depth urine microbiology. That unfortunately is not full proof either, so look up CUTIC information aswell. Good luck.

      Symptoms for UTIs have all sorts of feelings, including, pain in groin area, pain in legs, burning, urgency and you don't have to have all of them to have an underlying infection. Best to check out that route thoroughly first aswell as anything else you think it might be. People can have low level infections that can cause less symptoms but need getting rid of. Most of this research I have found myself but I am not a health professional. Good luck

    I would make an appointment with a urologist or a urogynocologist. They are much better trained to handle complicated urinary issues. Sometimes people will show symptoms before bacteria count gets high. I had symptoms of UTI's but as it turned out, I actually had an overactive bladder. No bacteria ever showed up in urine samples. Overactive bladder can be simply treated with medication. I have no symptoms as long as I am on medication.

    Take selenium tabs once a day and drink plenty of water. Cut carbonated drinks and any spicy foods out of your diet. Avoid citric juices until you learn how your bladder handles them.
