Overactive Bladder Basics

Overactive bladder, or OAB, is the name for a group of bladder symptoms. These symptoms may include a feeling that you have to pass urine urgently, the need to pass urine often (day and night) and urine leaks with the “gotta go” feeling. While OAB is very common, having any of these symptoms can make it hard to get through the day without going to the bathroom many times.

Using the bathroom is a normal part of a person’s day. When you start to worry about always being near a bathroom or about leaking urine if you don’t go in time, it may be time to talk to your doctor. OAB can get in the way of normal daily activities like work, going out with friends, exercise and sleep.

Your doctor may suggest lifestyle changes to help manage your symptoms on the go. Dietary changes may include limiting foods or drinks that bother the bladder – these can vary for each person. Start keeping a bladder diary to help discuss your bathroom habits with your doctor. Avoid drinking fluids at least two hours before bedtime. These are just a few options that may be helpful after talking with your doctor.

Dealing with OAB at work or on the go takes a little planning ahead but once you find a routine that works for you, it may be easier to manage your symptoms.
