Overactive Bladder Doctor in Pasadena & Clear Lake, TX
There is a complex interplay between your brain, nerve signals, and your bladder. This coordinated effort lets you know when your bladder is becoming full or when it is time to be emptied. With an overactive bladder (OAB), however, the muscles of the bladder contract involuntarily creating the need to urinate, even though the bladder may not be full. An overactive bladder causes everyday challenges such as loss of urine control and the fear of an accident. This can cause patients to isolate themselves from friends and family, and may limit the ability to work.
