So upset, every 20 minutes have to pee

This has been going on since Nov 09'. My symptoms are a constant feeling to pee evey 20 minutes. When I go its not alot and not much. I drink so much water all day. I do not drink liqour, coffee or spicey food. When I get my urine tested there is never an infection. I feel better when my bladder is full and I hold it. I am so depressed over this. Can someone give me any advice. Thanks

I used to warn about drinking a lot of water, tea, coffee, certain fruit juices etc.. Also, I used to warn about eating things like watermelon or cantaloupe.

But now I have a new warning: This is for anyone who might be on a high protein diet like the Atkins diet. Or anyone who is consuming a lot of protein for muscle building purposes. Or maybe you just eat a lot of protein because you like protein. A high protein diet can put your body in a state of ketosis. Then your body responds by engaging in "frequent urination" as a means to rid itself of the ketones.

Does this ring a bell? Is this what's causing your problem?

Re: So upset, every 20 minutes have to pee

I do not eat alot of protein. I got my urine culture back and it was negative. It is always negative. I wish I had an infection so there would be an answer. I am so sick of feeling this way.

Re: So upset, every 20 minutes have to pee

Have you been tested for diabetes? Diabetes will both make you thirsty and make you have to pee a lot.

Re: So upset, every 20 minutes have to pee

I was tested about a year ago and it was normal. I do worry about it because my Mom and grandmother have it. I should get tested again.

Re: So upset, every 20 minutes have to pee

Did as my urologist said and went to see my gyn. Gyn thinks that Uroolgist is crazy to refer someone with my problem to see a gyn. He is trying his best to help me. Took a urine test has some white blood cells in it, sending it out get results next week. Did an internal exam everthing ok. He thinks I may have IC. Told me to buy AZO until urine results come back.

Re: So upset, every 20 minutes have to pee

Is is an over the counter med that helps stop the urine urgencey. It feels like it is working, your urine is bright neon orange.

Re: So upset, every 20 minutes have to pee

Well again my urine test from the gyn came back normal. Of course it did, it always does. I was wishing it was an infection so I can take a med and than its gone. Now off to see my 5th Urologist. This one better have an answer.

Re: So upset, every 20 minutes have to pee

Did you do a fasting glucose check to test for diabetes yet?

I don't understand what you mean by "so much water all day". Does that mean "a measured amount" or "a lot of water"?

Do you drink cold water or ice water?

Do you often drink water on an empty stomach?

Do you drink more than 4 ounces at one time?

Are you on a low carb diet?

Do you take vitamins or any kind of herbs?

Are you a thin person who gets chilled easilly by air conditioning?

Are you on a low salt diet? Salt free diet?

Do you eat any processed foods that might contain ingredients that would cause you a problem?

How many grams of fiber do you get per day?

How often do you drink water? Do you sip water frequently?
