Angry Urinating 15 times a day - Please Help Me!

I've had cystoscopies, CAT scans, MRIs, urinalyses, etc. but all to no avail. I am 32. It has been almost a year since I have had this frequent urination issue (12 - 20 times per day). What should I do? Can I die from this?

Are you very thirsty as well? Or have your doctors thought about prescribing a med used to treat overactive bladder?

Are you actually urinating every time you go, or is it that you just 'feel the urge' to go that often? Has anyone suggested spasms?

No spasms. I urinate a lot each time. I've been on 12 courses of antibiotics. I have been urinating like crazy for the past year. No othere history of urilogical issues. Please help.

Forgot to mention, Detrol & Ditropan do nothing for me. What is it? Can I die from this?

are you urinating large amounts, and are you drinking large amounts as well? There is a condition called diabetes insipidus(not like the diabetes everyone is familiar with).

They ruled it out. I am not drinking too much, either. Thanks for the suggestion.

Have they ruled out a kidney disorder called Glomerulonephritis? Frequent urination is a symptom. Do you have also high blood pressure?

I also want to ask, did you take these antibiotics for something BEFORE the urination problem started?

Did they rule out BOTH types of diabetes insipidus? There is one variant where your pituitary gland isn't producing antidiuretic hormone, but your kidneys are totally normal--this is called central diabetes insipidus. The other one, called nephrogenic DI, is when there is something actually wrong with your kidneys at the molecular level. How did they rule out DI? Did they try you on a trial of ddAVP?

Somebody mentioned glomerulonephritis (GN)....I highly doubt it's that. Frequent urination CAN happen with that condition, but more importantly, you'd be losing a lot of protein and/or blood in your urine and there would be other effects on your body (like being really bloated and edematous). Plus, GN is actually not one entity....it's an umbrella term which covers a ton of different conditions. It's kinda like saying cancer....cancer is obviously not one disease, but many different ones.

Has anyone looked in to the possibility of something like Addison's disease?

Two Neuphrologists said it was not diabetes insipidus. I don't know what to do anymore. I may go to a neurologist.
