Here's my story, sorry if its long, but i feel like i'm going crazy and need some advice. I am 25 years old. I drink about 2 litres of water a day per my urologist because i have a history of kidney stones. Despite the fact that i drink a lot of water, i still think my urinating is abnormal. i usually have to go between 11-13 times a day, sometimes more. Sometimes i can go an 1 1/2 to 2 hrs between, but sometimes i can only wait 20-40 minutes in between trips to the bathroom. Although i don't have any incontinence, i do have sudden urgency where i am afraid i won't make it to the bathroom in time. When i go, i go about 150-200ml at a time which isn't tons, but it's not just a trickle either. The thing is i can make it through the night without having to get up or only once. Because of the lack of incontinence and nocturnia my uro says he doesn't think that i have an overactive bladder. However, how can I not have OAB when i have the urgent need to go 11-13 times a day? I don't know what to think...he says that must just be the way i'm hooked up. I'm devestated. I'm only 25 yrs old, i have to get up to pee 2-3 times during a movie, and he says there is nothing he can do. Am I crazy? I have general anxiety and my psych. says it could be related to that, but i still have the problem even when i am not feeling any anxiety? Help? Does anyone know what is wrong with me...should i get a second opinion, or is my urologist right and i should just try to accept this and learn to live with it?
