| | Overactive Bladder
I have "overactive bladder" of the "Urge Incontinence" variety, as opposed to Stress Incontinence. My Ob/gyn wants to do some test before considering treatment, which I presume would be a medication - and one sees numerous TV ads for these - however, I have no doubt of my diagnosis. I'm 57, post menopausal, have no other urinary system symptoms, and simply would like a measure of control over this common ailment.
I recently read that magnesium might help because of its ability to strengthen muscles and began taking it. I'd like to say I've noticed some improvement but it might be wishful thinking! I'm interested in knowing if others have tried this with success, but am also curious about other remedies that others might have found helpful.
