The most common symptom is the ongoing urgent need to go to the bathroom. OAB can interfere with work, going out with friends, exercise and sleep. It can lead you to the bathroom many times during the day or night. Some people leak urine pee after this urgent "gotta go" feeling.
A frequent urge to urinate can be very disruptive. But a constant urge to pee without the relief of being able to can become unbearably frustrating. This condition affects both men and women. There are many different causes, symptoms, and treatments to resolve this condition. One of the most common causes of feeling the urge but being unable to pee are UTIs. These occur about four times more frequently in women than men.
Having the constant urge to pee, even when you've just finished, is medically referred to as frequent urination or urinary frequency. On average, people empty their bladders anywhere from four to eight times per day. Most are able to control their bladder if the urge suddenly appears.
