Re: Sudden urge

Dear Adele

Thank you for your message and sorry to hear how distressing these symptoms are for you. The symptoms you describe are very common, and can occur for a number of possible reasons. Most commonly these symptoms are due to a condition called overactive bladder, but it is important to have a urine sample checked by your doctor first. Do you drink a lot of caffeine or fizzy drinks? Often reducing your intake of these types of drinks can help. If not, there are lots of things we can do to help treat your symptoms. Some of these treatments may involve medications, or depending on how severe your symptoms are, there are other relatively minor procedures we could consider to try to improve things. I hope this helps.

Re: Sudden urge

Hi Adele. Sorry to hear you’re suffering with this. Urinary incontonence is miserable, but can be treated effectively. Mr Malde has given you some great advice about seeing your GP and getting your urine checked for any abnormalities. If your urine is free from infection then you need further assessment and treatment, normally staring with lifestyle advice and medications. All of this can be started by your GP, with referral to a specialist if they fail to effectively reduce or stop your incontinence over a period of time.
Give your GP a call and start getting some help, you’ll be so glad you did! Good luck!
