Menopause :: Frequent Urination - Need To Urinate Constantly

Nov 20, 2013

I am 41 and for the past year I have been having a feeling like I need to urinate constantly, even after I just went. There is no infection, I have been checked/cultured on many occasions. Is this hormonal? Does anyone else experience this? Can anything be done? I feel like it is driving me mad. My only other symptom is more frequent yeast infections, which had never been a problem until this past year.

Frequent Urination - Urinate At Least 20 Times A Day Without Any Disease

I urinate at least 20 times a day, more in the morning than at night. I don't drink alcohol or an abnormal amount of liquids. My stream is steady and strong and I've never experienced pain while urinating. I don't have a diabetes. A doctor at a walk in clinic said frequent urination may not be the anything and some people just urinate a lot. Anyone have any other opinions?

Fatigue, Frequent Urination - Could I Have Diabetes?

I already have a low to medium risk for diabetes. I have PCOS and Hashimoto's disease, am overweight, And my grandmother had diabetes (but is currently in remission). I ask, because I've been looking At a few online sites, and symptoms I've had for years (or even most of my life) seem to be dead giveaways for diabetes. Fatigue, frequent urination (including at night) way more than the recommended 8 times a day, I recently put on weight for no obvious reason, I am constantly hungry (if not starving), even after eating, and recently I've been very thirsty.

I've been tested a few times, and when I was pregnant they checked too, and it's always come back negative. Could I be boarder line? Or do I just have a bunch of symptoms I'll never get rid of?

Frequent Urination After Heart Surgery

Since I had CABG 4 (quad by-pass heart surgery) 10 years ago I have (too) frequent urinations. These aren't just a false urges, but the real McCoy. At night I have to get up 4-5 times. When I get up in the morning usually around 6 AM I have to go, afterwards in less than 6-7 minutes the urge is there again. I have measured typical urinations in the daytime to be usually 5-6 ounces. Last week on a long trip that required a full days drive I was within 20 miles of home and on a long bridge tunnel system in heavy 4-lane traffic when the urge hit (big-time.) I had made a rest stop about 40 miles back, but the urge was back. There was no way to stop and it could no longer be held. As I entered the tunnel I managed to shift a newspaper under my bottom in order to maybe not soak the seat. Fortunately, I had a large mouth empty water bottle, which I managed to arrange (I thought.) In the long tunnel and very heavy traffic at 55 mph I gave it a go, which was about 65% successful. My meds are Simvastatin, Metoprolol, Welchol and Tamsulosin (Flomax.)

Multiple Sclerosis :: Frequent Urination?

Since doctors don't seem to want to help me figure out what's wrong, I'm trying to investigate my various symptoms to find potential diseases to rule out.

For the past two and a half years, I've had a problem with frequent urination. No incontinence of any kind, but I tend to pee on average 12-20 times a day. Sometimes I'll be up one or two times at night, sometimes more and sometimes not at all. I DO drink quite a bit of fluid. I tend to average 50-100+ ounces of fluid a day. Usually once a day I'll have a cup of tea, but I don't drink a ton of coffee or any soda at all. I am always thirsty, feel dehydrated all the time, mouth is dry, lips are chapped, light headed and dizzy often, even on the days I'm drinking 100+ ounces of water. I work in an office and don't do anything strenuous that results in sweating. When I do pee, sometimes it's only ten or fifteen minutes before I have to go again. Most of the time, I'm producing a full volume of pee, almost never is it just a few drops or a little bit. My urinalysis and cultures come back normal.

Went to the gynecologist today, he said my bladder is working fine and that when I pee, I am emptying my bladder all the way. His suggestion was to drink less. I'm thinking a 31 year old woman who does not have diabetes or a UTI that's lasted for 2.5 years shouldn't not only have this constant need to pee, but also this constant need to drink and feeling of dehydration. I went to a neuroendocrinologist because I truly believe with my other symptoms, I have some kind of pituitary problem going on (Cushings and/or GHD) but he laughed and blew me off because Hey, it's rare, therefore you don't have it.

Should I ask my PCP about looking into MS? In addition to the frequent urination, I have a great deal of cognitive issues (memory loss / retention problems, concentration problems, shortened attention span, sometimes can't speak properly), depression and anxiety, eye issues (wicked light sensitive, blurry vision, hurts to look up or to the sides), stiff and painful joints and muscles, muscle weakness, occasional tingling in hands or feet, INCREDIBLY fatigued, dizziness and lightheadedness, vertigo, occasional balance issues, and trembling / vibrations in body.

Frequent Urination - When I Am In Lecture Room

I'm 19 and a student. I have urgency to urinate when I am in lecture room. I am okay for 20min after that it feels like I really need to use toilet to urinate. This never stops and and every time I think what can I do to stop this and when I'm in lecture I can't concentrate as the fear of peeing my self occurs which numbs my brain.. I try to distract myself but doesn't work. Plus I urinate before the lecture and I drink less water so I don't but still it does. I hardly drink water or anything when I'm at university. Is there anything I can do to help this stop? I really need some help cuz it feels like prison as I can't think or do anything throughout the day..

Total Hip Replacement With Frequent Urination

i am a 74 year old male and had my THR one week ago.  There is no pain, a little discomfort, and I am walking with two sticks.  The only problem is having to get up 5 or 6 times in the night to go to the bathroom.  I never had this before.  I am OK during the day.  Could it be because of the catheter I had for 2 days, or medication?  Has anyone had anything similar?

Urology :: Frequent Urination And Bladder Not Emptying

I have frequent urination, and my bladder doesn't empty completely, therefore I feel the need to go right after I went, and sometimes I take a very long time trying to get out what I have in the bladder.

I also have constipation, and strain on the toilet. I also was frequently going to the bathroom for different reasons and I'm stressed out.

I understand these two can play a role in my bladder problems.Is this true? If so, what can I do to heal? Bladder training? Pelvic floor muscle exercises?
Will taking a drug that empties my bladder be helpful in the long term?

Cystitis :: Frequent Urination - Urine Was Pinkish

I have been experiencing frequent urge to urinate for the past 2 weeks. At first it was just annoying, I haven't experienced pain or anything so I thought it was just because of drinking plenty of water. But then, even when I didn't drink much I had the urge to go to the bathroom every one hour and I started to wake up at least once at night with the urge to urinate even when it was for very small amount of urine. For two days the colour of my urine was pinkish and I felt discomfort and pressure on my lower back. Now the colour of the urine changed to pale yellow and I feel some weird vibration in my lower back. Anyone has any idea of what this can be? I have read about UTIs  but can this be UTI if I don't feel pain or burning sensation while urinating? I am just back from vacation in a foreign country and I can't see my doctor until after 3 days.. But I am starting to get concerned since it is lasting very long... I was just wondering what this can be and if it is something to worry about? Will be very grateful for comments and informations!

Irritable Bowel Syndrome :: Frequent Urination?

I posted something few days ago but I didn't really ask this question and has been nagging at me for months now. I did make an appointment for my GP on Wednesday. I wanted to get to the bottom of my symptoms because it has been at least 3 months. 

Anyways I was wondering how many you who have IBS suffer from frequent urination? and sorry to be explicit how does your bladder feel?

I don't have any pain and I don't wake up in the middle of the night to go to the washroom. I just get this pressure feeling in my abdomen/pelvic region and it feels like I have to pee. I tried to experiment cause lets face it going to the washroom every hour to hour and a half is annoying so I've been trying to not go washroom until at least 2-3 hours. It is uncomfortable but I can do it. I even lasted the whole night when the last time I went to the washroom was at 8pm and I slept at 1 am.  I am worried that this might be ovarian cancer, even though I am only 18, and yes I do know cancer happens at all ages but at the same time it is a slim chance. Also I'm worried since it is going on with my colon symptoms which I have been told from other posts that it seems like IBS. I also worry that this is diabetes though the only symptom I get is this; I am not excessively thirsty. I also woke up two days ago with lower dull back pain that is still lasting, feels like an annoying muscle ache.

I also would like to ask if I should demand my GP to do the necessary tests? if I should, how should I do it?  Last time I went to her in September I only had constipation symptoms and she told me to up my fiber intake and come back in a month if it persists. I didn't because I wanted to observe it since in the summer I kept coming back to her for a persistent cough that I thought was lung cancer. I was afraid that she would dismiss my worries like she did that time by taking at least two months to request an x-ray of my chest even though I asked for it the first time because it was "unnecessary" (it was because the cough did go away in the beginnings of september but still if nothing was working from antibiotics to asthma inhaler I would think I would try to see if anything was wrong internally).

Frequent Urination - Weak Bladder That Aches

I am a 43 year old male. I have been experiencing a weak bladder on and off for several years but in the past year the symptoms have got worse. I am going to the toilet every couple of hours or so in the day and at least once in the night. When my bladder gets full it starts to ache and when I wake in the morning my bladder feels full and is aching. I have had blood tests, urine tests, physical examination and an ultrasound. The doctor concluded that he didn't really know what the problem was but said it could be an over active bladder or stress, or a bit of both- nothing to do with my prostate. I don't want to become reliant on prescription medicine - has anyone got any ideas what this could be or alternatives to prescription medicine.

Urology :: Frequent Urination - Classic Symptoms Of BPH

I am not sure what I have, but I have the classic symptoms of BPH.

Weak urine stream
Difficulty starting urination
Stopping and starting while urinating
Dribbling at the end of urination
Frequent or urgent need to urinate ( I go and then 5 minutes later I need to go again)
Increased frequency of urination at night (nocturia)
Straining while urinating

About a month ago, I began using an additive that changes the pH level of water to Alkaline called Alkalife.

Below are the ingredients.

Distilled water, potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide.

I know that the hydroxide are toxic to the body in large doses. It makes sense that these might the cause of my urinating problems.

Does anyone know if those ingredients can cause urination problems?

Frequent Urination - Stomach And Sides Are Painful

I have been experiencing higher the normal need to urinate lately. Sometimes going with very little flow but more frequently feeling the need to.

I have been feeling quite heavily bloated but last night was really bad when my stomach was causing me chronic pain. I passed both urine and stool ok. No blood and no smell from urine. Neither hurt either when going to the toilet it just seems frequent.

I have been to doctors and apparently slight bacteria from urine test but nothing identifying where an infection could be.

My stomach and sides lower down are incredibly painful and uncomfortable.

Substance Abuse :: Methadone Clinic - Frequent Urination

I am currently a patient at the methadone clinic. I am at 90 mg of liquid every day. Suddenly yesterday and today about 3 hours after I dose, I begin feeling sick to my stomach and I begin urinating at least 30 times an hour. What is going on? Also, is there ANYTHING I can do to stop the constant urinating? I am drinking water at this point so I don't get dehydrated and also so it cleans out the "poisoning effect."
