An overactive bladder is often referred to as urinary incontinence. It is a symptom and not necessarily the disease. It is the sudden urge to pass urine. Now this can be a challenge when you have to go about your day to day life. We encourage patients who are suffering from this symptom to visit the Alkhayal Medical Center for a thorough evaluation. This will help us determine the specific cause of the condition.
There are many symptoms of an overactive bladder
- Difficulty in controlling the need to urinate
- Experiencing the involuntary loss of urine
- Urinating up to 8 times in just 24 hours
- Waking up at night to urinate
All these symptoms can in many ways disrupt your life, and it is certainly not the way to lead a healthy life.
Dr. Shawket Alkhayal will successfully treat patients with an overactive bladder. It is particularly important that patients, who find this condition disrupting their work and home life, make an appointment to speak to the doctor. Although an overactive bladder can be normal in senior people, it is not part of aging.
Dr. Shawket Alkhayal will discuss your symptoms and provide a treatment plan. In several cases, medications can help to slow the production of urine. We will choose the best and most suitable treatment plan according to your medical status. We have extensive experience treating this condition with patients recovering from an overactive bladder and continuing to lead normal and healthy lives.
