Brief Answer: Hello Detailed Answer: Welcome to XXXXXXX Avoiding drinking water before going bed is not solution to this.As apart from current symptoms dehydration can sometimes cause more severe symptoms. Ideal step would be to get investigations done for increased frequency of urination.There are many causes for such increased urination ranging form renal , bladder, psychological ,bladder, neural and urethra related causes. So ideal step would be to see urologist who can help tailor the list of investigations for you. After that appropriate treatment can be planned. Hope this helps.Please ask if there are doubts.
