My son is 9 years old. For the last year or so has had issues with going to the bathroom a lot. There are times when he will urinate two to three times in a 10 minute stretch and then turn around and go back to the bathroom to do "number 2". This appears to only be a day-time issue and his pediatric doctor sees this as a normal behavior for some children. My concern lies that a majority of the time the urge to go appears to happen when he gets in the car and I am afraid that maybe some organs are getting pressed on. Your probably reading this and thinking that maybe this is stress related, but I don't see that on my end. He is a fairly easy going child and I don't the urge increasing when his stress level increases. If I need to see a specialist, is a Pediatric Urologist the best place to go?
