Urinary tract disorders are a very personal medical issue. It's normal to feel reluctant to talk about your symptoms, even with a trusted physician. You may keep quiet or minimize the symptoms you are suffering, but if you need relief, you should feel empowered to let your doctor know.
Urinary tract disorders are a very personal problem, so you may be reluctant to talk about the symptoms in any kind of detail. You many want to make your office visit as brief as possible. Urinary tract disorders are very common and nothing to be ashamed of.
Your doctor can only help you if you are completely open and honest with her or him. If you are experiencing extreme discomfort that is affecting your quality of life, your doctor wants to know that so that he/she can help you fix it. It's OK to ask for help. You have a right to ask for help.
Everyone's experience with urinary tract disorders is different. For some people, the symptoms are very strong. There is no "normal" level of symptoms or symptom relief. Only you know how much symptom relief you need.
Doctors can't read your mind. If you don't tell them you are having issues with symptoms, they may conclude that you don't need extra relief. Your relationship with your doctor should be a two-way street.
