In Reply to: Overactive bladder posted by Louise on March 05, 1999 at 15:26:27:
I have been diagnosed for 3 years with overactive or irritable bladder. I have tried Ditropan, Levsin and now Detrol. They work to a certain extent but I sometimes have periods of intense discomfort and bladder urgency lasting from a day to a week or more in which the medications don't seem to help. I am trying pelvic exercises and re-training my bladder to go every 2 hours with a 15 min increase each week. During these periods of intense discomfort, I am in the bathroom every 30 min, which makes my quality of life terrible. It's affecting my work, my leisure activities, etc. Is there anything I can do when this happens? Is stress a part of this? Will this condition lead to incontenance? Help!
