I HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH PANIC DISORDER. SINCE THEN I HAVE DEVELOPED A NEW SYMPTOM THAT WORRIES ME. WHEN I FEEL ANXIOUS OR about TO BE IN A SOCIAL GATHERING I GET THE SUDDEN URGE TO URINATE. I IMMEDIATELY HAVE TO FIND A BATHROOM, WHEREVER IT MAY BE. I FIND MYSELF FIXATED ON THE CONDITION MY BLADDER IS IN SO MUCH THAT I CONSTANTLY GO TO THE BATHROOM TO TRY AND PREVENT THOSE URGES FROM HAPPENING. WHEN I AM AT HOME IN MY COMFORT ZONE, I AM FINE UNLESS MY WIFE IS ON THE WARPATH. I MAY HAVE THOSE URGES 4 OR 5 TIMES JUST GOING TO PICK MY DAUGHTER UP FROM SCHOOL, EVEN THOUGH I USED THE BATHROOM BEFORE I LEFT. DOES ANYBODY ELSE HAVE THESE SYMPTOMS OR COULD IT BE SOMETHING ELSE? I HAVE LOOKED AROUND AND CAN NOT FIND ANYTHING SAYING THIS IS DUE TO ANXIETY. MY DR. SAYS IT PROBABLY IS , THOUGH.

Welcome to HW

It does sound like some type of an anxiety has got ahold of you
and it comes out in your habitual need for urination when out
Or in argument with wife
You have posted you have been DX with panic
Do you see a therapist or your family doc
Are you currently working on self help techniques like CBT
Or do you take meds??
Sorry for the ??'s but ....

Have you ever spoke to your doctor about this openly and without shame
This is nothing to be ashamed about
Anxiety can and will get us and any part of us at one time or another ........

What makes me think this as I am NOT a professional but your explanation of when you HAVE to urinate and why ......
The utter urgency of it
Like being out
Fighting with wife

Being in YOUR SAFE zone you are fine unless arguing


YOu can check resources at the side as this is the first I have heard of this BUT others that post may know more
I am just giving an opinion

I DO hope you will stay with us and post n read the threads ..........LYN


**BTW Could I ask you to take off the caps
It makes it look like you are yelling ( and I know you arent)

Thanks for your co operation

Again welcome and do stay with us

I have bowel and urinary problems and stress does seem to make them worse however they are related to my bad back. It could be caused by a lot of thing and you didn't mention any tests which worries me.

Hung in there,

RL,

Several years back, I went through a stretch where I too was fixated on my bladder. Before any kind of event, I would go to the bathroom several times, trying to time it to go just immediately before I needed to be in my seat at the theater, or on stage in the choir, or in the car for a ride. It was embarrassing, because there was never any genuine physical problem - only my concern that I would somehow have an accident in a very public place, or need to excuse myself from something extremely public.

I wish I could tell you "do this" to make it go away, but mine just seemed to fade out all on its own. All I can offer is a friendly hand from someone who felt the same way.
