Urinary Disorders

Urinate all night long

06/25/2007

Question:

I seem to get up every hour on the hour at night & have to urinate - I have asked my dr & can`t come up with answer - it is very frustrating & I stay tired since I can`t sleep all night long. Do you have any suggestions?

Answer:

If your doctor cannot give you an answer, ask to be referred to a Urologist. Assuming that you only urinate frequently at night and not during the day and that your urinary stream is of good force, other factors should be looked at. These include the amount and type of liquids you drink in the evening, what type of medication you take, and some hormonal levels.
