What causes frequent urination when suffering from disc herniation?
Need to look for alternative causes.
Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your symptoms. It is possible that severe disc prolapse and compression of nerves can cause urinary symptoms, however, there would be additional symptoms such as back pain, leg pain, tingling and numbness in legs, etc. In the absence of these symptoms, increased urinary frequency may be unlikely to be due to disc prolapse.
We need to look for alternative causes too. You may consult a Urologist also.
If the symptoms are due to disc disease, then, a decompression surgery may be needed.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Thank you for getting back with more information.
Based on the above, it is possible that disc prolapse is responsible for your urinary symptoms.
Urologist evaluation, however, would still be useful in excluding any other cause for your urinary frequency.
