My daughter who is almost 4 has suddenly started needing to go to the toilet a lot but doesn't always do anything while on the toilet so will get off only to go back a minute or two later. This happened a few weeks ago so I took her to the dr because she was getting quite distressed by having to get in the car and saying she was busting to go...but had only just got off the toilet immediately before getting in the car and it seemed to be escalating.
The nurse got us to do a urine sample which came back negative for any bacteria so he seemed to rule out a uti. This had me stumped because it was the only thing I could think of to explain the sudden change. She's always been a breeze with toileting otherwise and can hold if needed etc.
He got me to treat her for worms because she was so wriggly which I did just to cover all bases. I think she was wriggling because she felt like she needed to go but figured it couldn't hurt. He also told me to treat her for thrush even though there was no sign of irritation, I went to but the pharmacist said she wouldn't worry until there's a sign of thrush as it will become obvious if that's the cause.
Anyway it all appeared to clear up over a few days and then suddenly today she has started to do it again. Tonight she was up and down going to the toilet, sometimes doing nothing, sometimes a wee.
Its just got me stumped. Has anyone else experienced this in their children?

Maybe get her blood sugar levels checked? I would have thought UTI too but sounds like they ruled it out.

That was something he mentioned but said you would think she would be weeing a lot due to drinking a lot if it were from diabetes, not so much feeling the need to wee but then being unable to wee when getting to the toilet.
Today she was holding her back and front and avoiding going to the toilet, wriggling around. I think she's over going to the bathroom! I've given her another dose of the worming stuff and using canesten for thrush just incase.
I think it's definitely time for a trip to an actual doctor now, not just the health centre. Will request they actually investigate some of these things.
Thanks for replying
