have to urinate every 2 hours and now...

i have to urinate every 2 hours and this has been like this for over 2 years now. i am a male, and while at home, i always sit down when i go to the bathroom. well it seems like a lot of times i will also have a bowel movement also. and now in the last week my bowel movements have not been solid, but not altogether just fluid. it's kind of together, but just not solid. any ideas what is going on?

Re: have to urinate every 2 hours and now...

There are many things that can cause frequent unination. Impaired kidney function, diabetes, enlarged prostate,excessive fluid intake, certain medications.... yada yada yada.

Go see a doctor. He'll take a history and send you to a lab for a blood test.

Good Luck

Re: have to urinate every 2 hours and now...

I've got a VERY similar problem, (although the bowel movement part has been going on for MONTHS) I had a bedwetting problem when I was a kid, so I assumed it was caused by that, and didn't see a doctor, just tried some of the medication first (my grandma takes the same medication, so I borrowed some) and it didn't work, so I saw my doctor, and he is sending me to a urologist, my appointment is tomorrow, I will let you know what they say to me. I am currently on an anti-spasmatic bladder medication called Oxybutynin that is making the problem worse, but I'm supposed to stay on it until the appointment anyway. I will definently keep you updated, I am glad that I'm not the only one with the problem.

Urinating every 2 hours is perfectly normal. Your diet might will affect your bowel movement consistency.

Re: have to urinate every 2 hours and now...

yeah, it could be something like diet for sure. Every two hours is way less than me still. If I'm watching tv I end up getting up every single commercial break to go, because by the next commercial, I'm desperate, which means I'm going every 5-6 minutes myself. I went to see the urologic surgeon today, and he prescribed some new medication, and I get to go to the hospital in two weeks and have him look inside my bladder with a little camera (pleasant, 'eh?). Oh to just have a HEALTHY life.

Re: have to urinate every 2 hours and now...

Well the bowel movement things has improved. and i do still urinate every 2 hours at least. once in awhile i'll have to go every hour. and rarely in 30mins. as i said this has been ongoing and have been to a urologist, and he did the procedure of sticking camera in me and found nothing. i also tried cipro which did nothing. i haven't gone back in months out of frustration and feel like i'm wasting money.

Re: have to urinate every 2 hours and now...

jon,

Have you been tested for diabetes (had your fasting glucose checked?). The reason that I asked is for a while, I thought I was healthy when I was drinking water all the time and urinating many times per day, and waking up at night to urinate also. If you have noticed that the frequency of urination has increased, or that you might be more thirsty, or tired than usual, it might be a good idea just to make sure that diabetes is not the cause.

i've been tested a couple time for that, and nothing has come up... but it has been at least a year now since i've seen a doctor about this.
