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
My symptoms are a constant feeling to pee evey 20 minutes.
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?

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.
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.
