Your condition could be called urgency.  Sure, it could be psychological in nature but as you claimed, it started when you were only 6 years old.  What could be that hang-up you were not able to overcome?

I think it's about time that you see a urologist so that proper evaluation could be done to you.

Good luck!

i am 20 years old, and i have just started having problems with frequent urination.  It started when I moved to school in philadelphia. At first i thought it was the water, but it is not.  I would have to stop by the restroom on the way to class, before i got to class, during class, on the way back from class, and when i got back to my dorn.  It was ridiculous.  I have seen a urologist but they have no idea what is going on.  They put me on several meds but none have seemed to work except Sanctura XR.  Since taking that, I only get the urge to urinate while riding in the car (wierd).  Im not sure if this is just psychological (stress) or there is an actual problem.  I've had blood tests, urine tests, STD tests, and ultrasounds done and nothing seems to come up as a problem.  Help? Any advice at all would be helpful, I feel like im the only one in the world with this problem at 20.

Hi, please get yourself investigated for neurogenic bladder. Types  of brain lesions or spinal cord lesions leads to this kind of detrusor overactivity. For more information visit http://www.emedicine.com/MED/topic3176.htm

It could be a weak bladder, they have over-the-counter pills, just ask a pharmacist for bladder control medication, they'll tell you what aisle it's on, try it out and see if there's any difference.

My Urologist has prescribed me Ditropan (generic name: oxybutynin), but there are a ton of medications out there.

I'd urge you to go and see a Urologist, but baring that, at the very least, go and see your PCP and advise them of your symptoms and situation. Ask for a bladder relaxant/bladder anti-spasmodic, and that'll do the trick (assuming Urgency/Frequency of Urination or Overactive Bladder Syndrome is indeed what you have).

I wish you the best of luck Jacob. It's no fun feeling like you need to pee every 30 seconds, only to see 'drip', 'drip, 'drip' in the toilet.
