I am having issues with urine frequency. I have been

I am having issues with urine frequency. I have been urinating every 30-45 minutes for the last 4 days. normally I urinate once every 1-2 hours. I am up anywhere between 2-6 times a night almost always. I have been tested for diabetes earlier this year and the results were negative. I have a 20oz soda about once a week and i about 32oz of tea a week. Outside of that i always drink water but still not the recommended amount do to urinating so much. i am generally fairly well hydrated. I am not experiencing any abdominal pain but i suffer from chronic back pain so I wouldnt notice lower back pain outside of the normal. There is no blood in my urine and it does not sting or burn when i urinate. My husband and i have been trying to conceive naturally also. But I cant remember if I had a cycle at the beginning of September like i should have because i seem to have forgotten to mark it down. Although i am a nurse, i'd like to know what your thoughts on the possibilities could be. What could be going on? And what do you suggest?

Hi. I have been dealing with a urinary issue for almost a year. I have urinary frequency and urgency. At times, my groin will hurt after I m done urinating and I will have pain in my penis. I will at times have stomach pain, blood in my stool, bleeding after bowel movements, rectal pain, constipation, and diarrhea. I have seen a doctor who put me on an anti-inflammatory and that helped for awhile. I saw a urologist who put me on Vesicare because they felt I have Overactive Bladder. I am still taking both the anti-inflammatory and Vesicare, but I am still experience the frequency and urgency. I feel like its worse and I can t really get any relief or able to relax. I am really tired of dealing with this issue and would love to help. Thanks!

I have have sporatic blood in the urine, perhaps once a month for a few months now or longer. It has lasted just a day or two. My last blood in urine was last weekend/Saturday & Sunday. On Monday I had what I thought was bladder infection/UTI. I provided a urine sample to the Iowa Clinic/urology on Monday and haven t gotten the results yet (they said after 13 hrs there was no cultures growing/but need 48 to make a diagnosis on the sample). They put me on sulfa/bactrin antibiotic (I know that is risky with my warfarin, so need to monitor my INR). And, I don t really know at this time if I have a bladder infection...but rather the kidney stones issue. The bladder infection feeling has lessened with uristat, but I still feel like I have to urinate all the time.... I had kidney stone diagnosis last caused issues in ureter and apparently it came through at some point soon after that, but there are 4 remaining in my kidney. I had an xray a month or so ago and they were still in kidney. Perhaps 1 or more kidney stones are moving through the ureter at this time? I don t really have pain, just this annoying feeling of having to urinate all the time. I had lower back pain when i first felt the bladder infection coming on/Monday, but it went away in a few hours with ibuprofen. I have diabetes II, A1C is 9 (I know that s very high and I need to get that under control!), and I have atrifib, so on warfarin. I am to have a scope today with a urology doctor to check my bladder. Besides being very curious about my symptoms and issues, my concern today with the scope is....I still have this frequency to urinate feeling, will that affect the scope? I am on sulfa/bactrine and warfarin, so worry about the bleeding it could cause. Also, if there is kidney stone(s) in ureter will the scope create more issues with that? Of course, I guess I will find out more today, but what could be causing the frequency feeling of urinating if I don t have an infection? My email address is YYYY@YYYY - and my name is Debbie.

My husband and I are 65 and we are having heat wave last week and continues this week in 90s. We are taking in more fluids to stay hydrated but last couple of nights we both had frequent urination. He has low sodium issue. How do we stay hydrated and reduce urination frequency at night?
