for the past year I ignore this condition but now I realize it affects my daily life. It is hard for me to go for a long ride and even stay in one place for a longer period of time without the need to go to comfort room. I went to doctor yesterday and had my urine checked. The glucose is negative for diabetes and are clear. I asked the doctor if he can prescribe me with medication to lessen the over active bladder I may have but he said no medication for that. any other way?

no other complaints mystic. I am in the house often, I am not active, no exercise. Most of the day, just sit and a little chores. I drink lots of water. right after drinking, I feel the urge. Whenever I go to far place, I drink half a glass before leaving, I will pee after an hour then good to go for the rest of the ride, no drinking at all until I get to my destination.

Your really should check in with an endocrinologist and explain to them your problem. There is a condition known as diabetes insipidus and endocrinologist is better able to diagnose it and prescribe proper tests and treatment. Hope this helps!

I doubt there is no medication for that since there is. First of all you should find out if this problem is there day and night or for example only if you are busy or do drink a lot. Also important is if this is caused for example by many bladder infections, after surgery or ... It can help to do some exercise of the "bottom muscles" with or without meds, changing some food. If you need to go to the bathroom frequently it's also important to know how much your bladder can "store". Might be it's getting smaller and smaller (it's also possible because of scarves inside) so you are not able to hold in anymore. What you can do is count while you urniate so you have a kind of idea if it always contains the same amount. If you think your bladder is able to contain more but you just go because of this "feeling" you could try to take some painkillers (combination of paracetamol and voltaren K) also keeping it warm (hot water bottle, hot tubs) might make it better.
