Overactive Bladder

Overactive bladder (OAB) is a condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It refers to a sudden, strong urge to urinate that is difficult to control, which can result in frequent urination, and even involuntary leakage.

The symptoms of OAB can be quite disruptive to daily life, leading to social anxiety, sleep disturbances, and reduced quality of life. Common causes of OAB include nerve damage, bladder infections, and certain medications.

The exact cause of OAB is not always known, but some common causes can include nerve damage, bladder infections, certain medications, and changes in hormone levels.

In the early stages of OAB, a person may experience symptoms such as:

  1. Urgency: The sudden need to urinate that is difficult to control
  2. Frequency: Having to urinate more than eight times in a day or more than once every two hours
  3. Nocturia: Waking up at night to urinate
  4. Incontinence: Leaking urine when experiencing urgency
  5. Pain or discomfort during urination: In some cases, a person may experience pain, burning or discomfort during urination.

It is important to note that not all individuals with OAB experience all of these symptoms. Some people may have only urgency without incontinence or may have incontinence without urgency.

While OAB can be challenging to prevent, there are several treatment options available. Lifestyle changes like limiting caffeine and alcohol intake, scheduling regular bathroom breaks, and doing pelvic floor exercises can help improve symptoms.

Medical treatments for OAB may include prescription medications, bladder botox injections, or neuromodulation therapy. In severe cases, surgery may also be an option.
