Irritation: The bladder can be irritated by a foreign body like a uric acid or calcium-based stone. It can be affeced by interstitial cystitis where there is a defect in the bldder wall with resulting irritation and low volume. A cancer can cause the probem as can certain types of incontinence and incomplete voiding. Have your gynecologist or urologist check you out.
