4 Symptoms of Overactive Bladder

Increased Frequency of Urination

People with an overactive bladder tend to feel the need to go to the bathroom more usually than normal. This can be often 10 or more times during the day. Compared to those people with usual bladder functions, the bladder of these patients might contain less urine content. Therefore, this increase in the frequency of urination is not often related to the consumption of your drinks or beverages. The symptom can show up even when you limit your fluid intake or not. In daily life, it would interrupt your social situations and affect overall performance. [1]
