    Hi all! I am looking for some help. I have, in the past month or so, begun to wake up in the morning and am unable to hold my urine long enough to even get to a bathroom. Sometimes it happens in the middle of the night, sometimes its just early morning. I have had two negative urine cultures, and I am mortified. I actually wet the bed this morning, which I have never done. I just don't know what to do. My gynecologist suggestsed seeing a urologist, if anyone has any suggestions of one in Northwest Indiana/Chicago please let me know. I am desperate.

    Just a suggestion...look on the websites of the great colleges and universities in your area. University of Chicago, Northwestern come to mind. I am not sure how close they are to you. If they take your insurance I think that would be a great place to start. But do get a urologist and try not to worry too much, Stress exacerbates a lot of little problems. And I know you are worried.

    The bladder is a sensitive organ with a lot of nerves attached. Hopefully, the cause is very simple.
