Thanks for writing in. There are two conditions which can manifest with this kind of symptoms. They are interstitial cystitis ( non infectious cystitis) and over active bladder.
Interstitial cystitis is a idiopathic condition, which manifests with recurrent cystitis of non infectious origin. Causes for this are not known.
Over active bladder is a condition in which there is involuntary and sudden contraction of bladder wall resulting in frequent urination, urgency of urination, and urge incontinence. Overactive bladder may cause significant social, psychological, occupational, domestic, physical, and sexual problems.
Discuss with your urologist regarding the above mentioned possibilities and follow his advise.
