I have previously posted on these boards regarding a problem I have with the need to urinate frequently.
Everyday I pass large amounts of urine. Sometimes I can go to the toilet around 12 times a day! It is definetly not a pshychological problem as each time I have the urge to go I pass a full amount of urine. Today I visited my GP regarding this problem, I took along a urine sample for testing. The GP tested the sample twice there and then and couldn't find any problems. To be extra safe he has requested that i do another sample to be sent off to the lab for testing.
My problem began since falling ill to what is suspected to be CFS. I am currently in the process of being diagnosed with the condition. My GP thinks it is highly likely that CFS is the illness causing me to feel very unwell.
I did ask my GP whether the frequent urination problem I have could be related somewhat to the suspected CFS. My GP has assured me he does not think that is the case! I am unsure whether to believe his response as I have never had this problem before, only since falling unwell. A member on these healthboards did mention to me about imbalances of electrolytes that can cause people to frequently need to urinate. I mentioned this also to my GP who checked through my notes and confirmed that those blood tests had all be carried out and were negative.
I will now wait for the results that are being sent to the lab for testing. Although my GP thought it is unlikely for anything abnormal to show in the sample.
I am wondering where to go next if this is infact the case. I have been going back and forth to my GP for months about this problem and nothing seems to be getting done about it.
This situation is beginning to become a nightmare as I have to limit myself to the certain places I can go as I always need to have a toilet available! Sometimes I am having to pass urine every 30mins sometimes even less than that!
I would like to hear from anyone who has been through or is going through a similar situation to my own.
I am not sure I would need to see a urologist as I am not experiencing any pain or burning etc. My problem is literally the need to constantly pass urine.
I have been told that endocrinologists usually deal with problems such as this. If any of you have any advice it would be very much appreciated! I am beginning to think I am going crazy!
