I'm a cystitis sufferer and have found these boards incredibly helpful, but I'm here for someone else this time!
My boyfriend is 23 and suffering from OAB badly. He goes to the toilet about 4 times a night and probably about 15- 20 times a day. He's under the care of a urologist but he's getting frustrated as all the treatment courses have been ineffective so far and Diffundox has had some not-very-nice side effects!
Once thing he has noticed is that the OAB began a couple of years ago when he slightly hurt/knocked out his hip. He notices he feels a pressure on his bladder when his hip is playing up and vice versa. When he jogs he can feel exacerbated need to wee too. I'm wondering whether the two are connected and people online seem to support this. He's mentioned this to his doctor but it's been dismissed.
Could physio or a chiropractor be of help here?
Any help & advice appreciated, I feel so sorry for him at the moment
