Neurological disorders impacting the bladder

User Profile
I have urge to urinate, if I don't inmediately urinate I got pain,
a lot of pain. The pain stops when I got home from work because I wear diapers at home and I drink a lot of liquid like 60oz of liquid, then as soon as I have the urge to urinate I stand up and urinate in the diaper. the pain disappears in about 15 minutes and I don't have more pain until the next day when I go to work and of course I can not do the same procedure. I go to the Urologist for almost a year now, I have no infections, I had have all kind of test, nothing is wrong, medications don't work. What can I do?

Given the data you provided (frequency and urge to urinate accompanied with pain, no leakage, no infection), you might be experiencing a neurological disorder affecting the nerves associated with the bladder. What kind of neurological disorder might be present, cannot be determined without an additional examination (physical examination, X-ray or MRI of the spine).

You might want to visit a neurologist to check the nerves responsible for the bladder. Examining the lower lumbar and sacral part of the spine might be needed, because the nerves actually start from there and the cause might be located in the spine.
