OAB Symptoms

Are You Suffering From Overactive Bladder? Symptoms To Look For

Suffering from OAB can lead to stress, anxiety, and the inability to do the things you love but how do you know if you are suffering from it? There are a few symptoms and causes to look for that can be different between men and women.

However, the best way to know if you are suffering from OAB or something else is by visiting a urologist. Dr. Hatchett works closely with his patients to diagnose their conditions and then walks them through every treatment option they have.

Symptoms of overactive bladder

OAB is frustrating to deal with because it gets in the way of life and causes people to stop doing the things they love. Symptoms include:

  • The sudden need to urinate
  • Urine leakage
  • Constantly needing to urinate (usually over 8 times a day)
  • Waking up throughout the night to urinate

These are general symptoms that both men and women may have but there are some differences in the symptoms that they can experience.

OAB symptoms men may experience

  • Inability to empty the bladder fully
  • Incontinence(leakage)
  • Waking up several times per night to urinate

OAB symptoms women may experience

  • The uncontrollable urge to urinate
  • Urine release due to the uncontrollable urge to urinate
  • Waking up several times a night to urinate

The symptoms of OAB can be embarrassing and treatment options in the past were limited to medications or lifestyle changes. Now, there is a better option.
