Hi guys.

The symptoms of my overactive/small bladder have been (touch wood) somewhat under control of late (hourly toilet trips being the norm). However , as I have always noticed, whenever I have a cold, which at the moment I have a particularly nasty one, I need the toilet loads more. This isn't because I'm drinking more as like a lot of people here I'm sure, my condition doesn't allow it. But at the moment, I feel the need to go every 15 mins, does anyone know why this might be and what I can do to control it?

Thanks, Lisa

Hi Lisa - probably the caffeine in most cold remedies? I’ve just been suffering the same and believe thats the cause
