I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but I wasn't sure where else to put it.

My husband (25) has been suffering from urination/urgency problems for about the past year. Been to several doctors, on several meds, and nothing has helped. He was diagnosed as having overactive bladder, but we do not think this is the problem. The advice I am looking for is on how to help him cope with it. It has gotten worse over time (especially the past month or so) and it is starting to affect his every day life, especially work. He is always in pain and always feels like he has to go to the bathroom, even when he just went. Sometimes I just don't know what to say to help. I am trying to find new doctors to go to with the hope that maybe we could get a new diagnoses/med that would help. Is there anything anyone can say to help?? I am just at a loss for words sometimes. I feel so helpless and it really breaks my heart to see him in so much pain and misery. I really just want to help find a solution to this so we can live our life normally again!! Is that so much to ask?? I am desperate! Sorry for venting a little there, but if anyone has any kind of advice, I would greatly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Im no doctor or anything like that, but i can relate to your husband because i too am young, 28 to be exact and i have been dealing with my own frustrating chronic urinary problems as well. As for your husband, before his urinary problem took a turn for the worst, how was his urinary situation before this? How does he think what could have caused his urinary pattern to change? What type exams did his doctor or urologist do?
