An encumbrance at all ages; bladder issues are highly prevalent in both genders but more experienced by women too. Urinary urge and frequency happens once the smooth muscle of the bladder contracts unexpectedly.
Should you experience a bladder problem, you most likely have two of the following indications: frequency of peeing (usually a lot more than 8 times in 24 hours), emergency (an instantaneous and powerful urge to urinate) and seeping or involuntary release of urine.
Even though the alterations in urinary anatomy-caused by normal aging-don’t cause urinary trouble, they are actually creating a situation that enables this to happen easier and faster. Aging reduces the size of the bladder, creating a lower bladder volume and an excuse for more frequent bladder draining.
Peeing involves physiological processes inside the urinary system and also the brain. Our brain normally inhibits the need to urinate until we initiate peeing. Nerves within the brain, as well as in smooth muscle of the bladder involuntarily govern the detrusor (layered, smooth muscle that surrounds the bladder) muscle.
This muscle contracts and relaxes, in line with the amount of urine within the bladder and also the initiation of peeing. The need to urinate usually begins once the bladder has arrived at about 50% of its physiologic capacity. This desire is covered up through the cerebral cortex until an appropriate time and place has been selected.
If preventive measures and lifestyle changes fail to reduce your nighttime urination frequency, your doctor may want you to try medications. A class of drugs called anticholinergics is used for treatment of overactive bladder. Anticholinergics reduce the bladder spasms that create the urge to go. These drugs can help with overnight overactive bladder as well.
A treatment used for overactive bladder can also be used for nocturia. The underlying cause of overactive bladder is sometimes neurological. The nerves that send signals to the bladder to contract may be giving you the urge to go.
A small device that sends regulated impulses to the bladder can be implanted under your skin, near the tailbone. This type of device has been successful at reducing symptoms of OAB and is both a safe and reversible procedure.
