Re: Overactive bladder in children

Hi Clarabella
Does your daughter know she needs the toilet, gets a sudden urge then wets because she can't hold on or does she not know she's wetting when it happens?

Re: Overavtive bladder-liklihood of being cured?

Hi Apache21.
Can I ask if your daughter has been seen by any specialists for her bladder and bowel? Has she had investigations like any scans at the hospital?

Re: Painkillers and problem s

Hi Emmiloulou I think you should run your symptoms past your GP. You certainly won't be wasting anyone's time. I am assuming the medication you are taking for your other health conditions is contributing to your constipation? It may also be affecting your bladders ability to empty, or even reducing ...

Re: Bedwetting in a 10 year old

Hello Just an additional thing to check with your son, to add to the excellent advice posted so far. Does he drink much fluid before he goes to bed, or late in the evening? It may be worth looking at this, and reducing fluids a couple of hours before bedtime, along with cutting back/avoiding fizzy d...

Hello It sounds like you may have an overactive bladder, but quite rightly, as suggested, you should see your GP to exclude any other issues that may account for your bladder symptoms. Overactive bladder can be successfully managed and your quality of life improved, but seeking advice is the first s...

Re: Bladder infection and food

Hello
I agree with Dr Helen, active infection needs treatment with antibiotics. Of course drinking slightly more fluids (2L of water in 24hrs) during active infection is advised as well.
I hope you feel better soon
best wishes
Julie
