It Appeared to be an Overactive Bladder
by Marja Sprock, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.; F.P.M.R.S. Board Certified

“I always wanted the office with the window and after years I finally have it; now I’d prefer my office close to the bathroom.” Carol 47 years old confided in me and did not dare to go to her boss to ask her old office back. She had to go often and being further from the bathroom was a real problem towards productivity. She had tried medications from her primary care provider, being advertised on TV for when you “got to go”; however, they seemed to make it worse. She had tried several of them.

Carol tried to eat healthy and exercise and thought that drinking a lot of water was a good thing for her too. She based the latter on numerous magazines stating that drinking water was good for you and as many other people thought: the more the better.

She had failed several medications meant to treat OAB; maybe a sign that something else was going on.

For years Carol had been drinking a lot of water, to the extent where people were asking her if she had a swimming pool in her stomach. Even before Carol was assigned to her new office, further from the bathroom, she had cut down on her intake.

Carol did not know what to do anymore and made an appointment at Central Florida UroGynecology for help. She stated she had overactive bladder (OAB) and needed treatment. She also added that she had failed several medications meant to treat OAB; maybe a sign that some else was going on.

For years, while Carol tried to drink a lot of water, she had ignored the emptying signs of her bladder. In addition, she would stretch out her bladder so much, it could not contract adequately to empty. Carol would walk around with a full bladder all the time; her bladder did not empty well anymore.

Carol did not have OAB, but incomplete bladder emptying. Carol recognized the problem in time to avoid having it progress into severe urinary incontinence and bladder scarring. She underwent PTNS or percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation. Carol sat in a chair once a week, watching TV, while the nerve in her ankle was being stimulated. This nerve has a direct connection with the nerve innervating the bladder. We were trying to reset her natural nerve sensitivity. Carol also bent forward some when emptying her bladder and sometimes got up and sat right down again, to get more urine out. She also understood that water is healthier than soda, but a bladder does empty more effectively if it is not overstretched. Not only can large amounts of water at once dilute the electrolytes in the blood, it also overstretches the bladder preventing it from emptying well. The bladder is very comfortable with 10-12 oz, but not too keen on 20 oz. Carol noticed she felt better without pushing the water on herself. For years she had dizziness and fatigue and even visited the Mayo Clinic, where the entire work-up had been normal. She knew now that it had been because of her excessive water intake.

Carol still has the office with the window, but can empty her entire bladder again. Carol empties her bladder every 3 hours during the day, has a normal water intake and feels in control again.

Yes, she really does enjoy the window now.

If you have tried treatments, which do not seem to help, your diagnosis might not be correct. At Central Florida UroGynecology we have two female Board Certified Urogynecologists; Katrina Davis, M.D. & Marja Sprock, M.D. to help you.
