Overactive Bladder Symptoms and Signs
The hallmark of OAB is urinary urgency, a sudden urge to urinate that may be difficult to control. Actual loss of urine (incontinence) is not a defining symptom of overactive bladder, but it can happen as a result of urgency. Urinary incontinence tends to be more common in women with OAB compared to men.
The other symptoms of overactive bladder are urinary frequency (urinating more than eight times in 24 hours without any other reason, such as taking water pills) and nighttime urination or nocturia (waking up at least twice in the middle of the night to void).
