My daughter is 8 and does not wet to bed at night. She does however experience urgent urination. She tells me that sometimes she doesn't feel she has to go until its to late then she doesn't make it to the bathroom. This is not an everyday occurrence but when it does happen, she is now at the age where it is becoming an issue and embarassing for her. This has been an on going issue and I thought at first she was just waiting to long to go. I know it's not a UTI due to she has no pain or frequent urination and this has been ongoing since potty training. Is there any thing we can do naturally to help?
Don't rule out a UTI without getting a urinalysis. I've heard of many situations where there were no other signs of a urinary tract infection, and the incontinence had been there for many years, and yet a urinalysis found a low-grade infection that had been hanging around for quite a while.
Once that is ruled out, it is important to continue working with your doctor for a diagnosis. Incontinene is always a symptom of something that isn't working quite right in the body. This kind of incontinence is rather rare in a child your daughter's age, and it's important to figure out what is causing it. The urgency to urinate if felt when the nerves surrounding the bladder start firing before the bladder is truly full. This indicates that there is some problem with the nervous system, such as a problem in the spinal cord, or diabetes.
For your daughter's sake, please help her get help! Hopefully the cause will be minor, and at the end of all your searching you'll at least end up with a treatment to help keep her dry.
I feel for you. Keep going to the doctors. My suggestion is taping her into a diaper till problem can be found. Smething you would have to talk with her about and see how a diaper could help. Well better than having to change clothes and no one would notice. Had to do that with my daughter. My wife changes her rarely me. Wish you the best.
