Detailed Answer:
Hello, I'm Dr.Dorina Gurabardhi.
Welcome to HCM.
I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

There are many different reasons that can cause your symptom:
-drinking too many liquids (this is one of the common reasons )
-drinking too much alcohol and caffeine
-urinary tract infections
-kidney stones

So if I were your doctor I would recommend you these examinations to confirm the diagnosis :
-a urinalysis
-an ultrasound abdomen
-a complete blood count.

Meanwhile, I'd suggest you reduce the number of liquids, caffeine, and if at all any alcohol that you consume.

Hope my answer was helpful.
If you have any other question feel free to ask me again.

Kind regards!
