In brief: Bladder symptoms

There are a number of possible explanations for your symptoms.
You certainly may have a bladder infection, but an overactive bladder or a blockage of the bladder from scar tissue are also possible explanations. Without question, you need to be evaluated by a physician. A urinalysis, urine culture and bladder scan to evaluated your ability to empty your bladder needs to be performed.
