The diagnosis is often obtained from a well-taken history and complete physical assessment. The latter gives the doctor an idea of your pelvic floor muscle tone and helps to exclude other diagnoses with similar symptoms.
Tests to exclude urinary tract infection, stones and bladder tumours may be needed. In some people, urodynamic studies, a complex assessment of changes in bladder activity during filling and emptying, may be needed to confirm the diagnosis.
