Oab Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Overactive bladder (OAB) is a condition where there is a frequent feeling of needing to urinate to a degree that it negatively affects a person's life. The frequent need to urinate may occur during the day, at night, or both. If there is loss of bladder control then it is known as urge incontinence. More than 40% of people with overactive bladder have incontinence.
A person suffering from OAB mentioned, "An overactive bladder is ruining my life, but I'm worried people esp. future employers won't take it seriously as, on the outside, it doesn't seem like much of a problem. For the past 2 years, I have had OAB which alongside my bowels very rarely empty properly. It may not sound like much, but for me it has been hell. The constant soreness and sudden bursts of urgency have sapped my already low confidence, heightened my anxiety and dismantled my previously decent work ethic.
I'm a UK citizen, and I've been going to see an NHS consultant for the past year and a half; our meetings are rare, and nothing has changed to help me, I've taken some tablets, but these haven't done anything, although they've concluded after sticking a camera up my urethra... ouch that its most likely a nerve-based rather than a physical problem, which makes sense as I am a very anxious caffeine addict who used to have a habit of frequently going to the loo before every lesson 'just in case.' I have since abandoned caffeine and tried kegels and bladder retraining, but nothing positive has come out of it so far.. I'm currently awaiting the next stage, but I worry that I will be permanently like this without some medical support that works.
I'm currently at university, going on to second year in a few weeks, and have so far kept my head above water. I managed to juggle my A-levels and first year uni studies with some success. I've managed to secure rest breaks for exams, these were a god-send during my A-levels, and am allowed the occasional deadline extension.
However, I'm unsure how long I can sustain myself, especially in the real world. I fear that employers won't take my condition seriously, I'm yet to mention to my consultant about whether I can get some form of recognition for how enervating my condition is; I shall do this when I next see him in a few weeks. I fear that I will be forever unemployed or never given the chance to move up the job-ladder due to how slow I can be during flare-ups. The worst part is the unpredictability of these flare-ups making planning meetings, business trips, social events etc a nightmare."
