Question: Frequent Urination

 bcass15 - Tue Dec 09, 2003 11:52 pm

Lately i have been urinating much more than i am used to. I proably have to go to the bathroom or have the urge every hour and after i go i still feel "full." I have no pain whatsoever when i urinate and it always seems to be a pretty good amount not just a dribble. It had stopped for about a week or so and everything was fine, but it has just recently come back again

User avatar Bcass,
If you havent already been there, I would like to refer you to our page on frequent urination:


As you will see the algorithm starts by deciding if indeed there is an increased output of urine (>2400 ml per day) or not, a condition known as polyurea. Do you fall in that category?

User avatar dear bcass15,
