Question: bladder problems

 gia - Mon Dec 13, 2004 2:24 pm

i am just wondering what is wrong with me. for the past 3 months i have felt like i have to urinate all the time. it is worse when i am in a car. and when i do stop there is only a little that comes out. for some reason its not bad at home just when im out doing things. like i said the car is the worse. i hope someone knows what i can do.

User avatar Hi gia,
Maybe the fact that it doesn't bother you as much at home as in the car etc. is that you know you have an accessable bathroom available so maybe you don't think about it as much. Do you have any other symptoms such as burning etc.? It sounds like you may at least need a urine test to rule out a urinary tract infection. I would suggest you follow up with your physician.
