Disease, Syndrome, or Symptom?[edit]

I was listening to "on point" on NPR and apparently this is a disease that was created by a marketing department.

I'd heard something along those lines, but at this point the jury is out. It would still be a good idea to address the controversy.JIMfoamy1 (talk) 00:24, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't see anything that's an RS, just some blogs and such. Without a little support from good sources, addressing it in the article may be hard. 71.231.186.92 (talk) 03:00, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

I have replaced the symptom box with a diseasebox. A collection of symptoms is a syndrome, and this disease is has been standardised as 'overactive bladder syndrome' by the International Continence Society here as overactive bladder syndrome, and by over 27,000 google scholar articles.

too complex sentence[edit]

"In 2008 researchers found that simulating the condition in rats caused overactivation of their locus coeruleus, and it is thought this could cause anxiety and disrupted sleep in humans.[4]" Sorry I don't understand what you mean here. Can you write this in a less complex sentence? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.144.156.34 (talk) 13:19, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Advantages/disadvantages fields in table[edit]

I moved this discussion to Talk:Treatments for overactive bladder when the content being discussed moved to Treatments for overactive bladder. Blue Rasberry (talk) 15:16, 27 September 2013 (UTC)


No mention of Vitamin B12[edit]

Vitamin B12 can help OAB patients, and a lack of it can cause OAB. http://www.b12deficiency.info/blog/tag/bladder-incontinence/ http://www.livestrong.com/article/390405-vitamins-for-an-overactive-bladder/ http://trudytriumph.com/b12-zink-and-other-obsoletes-with-a-neurogenic-bladder/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.243.48.54 (talk) 12:32, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
