Experts have called on the medical profession to be more aware of the condition as sufferers can wait decades before seeking treatment.”

    Is it me, or is this just another case of medicalizing a normal behavior? What is the long term outcome of having difficulty urinating in front of another human? Bladder diverticulae? We need to send the message to the public to toughen up a little bit, not to give them ammunition to whine about normal behaviors.

    What a weird view, Dr. Hough. If people want to change some aspect of the physical behavior, why won’t the medical professional take money from such individuals?

    I’ve got to agree with Dr. H.

    Can’t pee in public places? Get a self help book.

    What did people do before restroom stalls were invented? If you’ve got to go then a way will be found.
