This has been going on for years. I run to the bathroom, pee a decent amount, and the second I stand up, it feels like I have to pee again. I sit back down and a little bit comes out. I stand back up and there's the feeling to pee again. So, I sit back down, and a little bit more comes out. This goes on for a few times, then I just leave the toilet. I then sit around with the feeling like I need to pee again until the urge becomes so consuming that I run back to the bathroom. This is usually after about 45 minutes to an hour. Sometimes I can only last 20-30 minutes. It's pretty annoying. Every time I go to the bathroom, I pee for at least five seconds ... it's not like I feel like I have to go and nothing comes out. I've been tested for diabetes and that came out negative. Also, they say I don't have any UTI's. I've been to the doctor numerous times and they can't find anything wrong. I was prescribed some Detrol, but that didn't help at all. I constantly feel like I'm a second away from peeing my pants. What could possibly be wrong with me???
It is possible that you have Interstitial Cystitis, this is a bladder condition
that has symptoms very similar to what you describe! I have IC and am an IC support group leader. If you would like some info on links to learn more about it and see if this
might be what is going on you can pm me and I will send you the info,
The Elmiron website has a questionnaire that you can take with you to your doctor
that can tell you how likely it is that you have IC.
I know it is frustrating to live like this, however you are not alone and there are treatments that can help!
