Constant feeling of a full bladder

I am a 33 year old female with 2 children under 5. For months now I have had the constant feeling of having to urinate. I will go to the bathroom and 10 minutes later I will feel like I have to go again. It wakes me up several times during the night. It is like how I felt when I was 8 months pregnant...but I am not pregnant. It does not hurt to go. The only other symptoms I have had is severe cramping in my left side in December but it has since stopped. Not sure what is going on.

Re: Constant feeling of a full bladder

I'd recommend seeing a urologist or at the very least a gynecologist. First, they'll test a urine sample to make sure you don't have a urinary tract infection. Then, if you don't, a urologist would probably have you keep a journal for a few days to see what your urinary output is like, they'll test a urine sample again to make sure no UTI's then they may do an ultrasound--all to rule out bladder problems. If you don't have a bladder problem and also don't have any signs of an infection, then they might diagnose it as interstitial cystitis. Interstitial cystitis often has same symptoms as a UTI--abdominal pressure, urgency--feeling like you have to go to the bathroom all the time. There are various meds that can be prescribed for this. Only problem is that everyone is different and so what works for one patient may not work for you and it's a bit of trial and error in order to find what helps you individually.

Hope this helps.
