One of my many ‘Gremlins’ has just been labelled ‘Overactive Bladder Syndrome’.
My GP is reluctant to treat this with drugs due the side effects, hence I understand that ‘bladder retraining’ will be adopted initially.
My sleep is interrupted up to seven times a night due to this problem. Daytimes can be a nightmare if I am stuck in unfamiliar surroundings and cannot find a loo. I get spells where I need the toilet every 15 minutes at worst.
Ref. bladder retraining, I cannot bear the thought of having to drink more fluids and holding onto my wee when I feel the need to go.
Are there any kind souls out there with experience of this and any tips please?
Thanks so much
