Keeping Track of Overactive Bladder Symptoms
Tracking can be an important part of managing overactive bladder—it can help you and your doctor see what's working to help manage your overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms.

Learning your baseline: the 1-day bladder diary
When it comes to noticing patterns, it helps to know your baseline. So consider a 1-day bladder diary before you talk with your doctor about symptoms.
The diary simply means jotting down things like what you ate and drank, how urgently you had to go, or if you had any accidents that day. You probably think you know your patterns really well, but you may be surprised by what you notice.
