I came across this website and Im impressed by the gratious advice offered to people in need.
I thought I would ask for help.
I am a 32M, non smoker, relatively healthy weight, drink alcohol once a week, no ongoing medication.
I have the urge to go to the toilet around 20-30 times a night! Probably more if I dont fall asleep.
I try to get to sleep around 11pm, and before I actually fall asleep i go to the toilet about 10 times. Somehow I fall asleep, then get up around 4am needing to go to the toilet.
Then the nightmare begins! I am for about another 2-3 hours frequently going to the toilet. I have an urge, I go to urinate and have to force something out for temporary relief. A few drops come out (Sometimes more If I have been holding out longer) then I go back to bed and within a 1 minute or two I have the urge again!
Finally I usually fall asleep between and 6-7 then get up at 7.30 to go to work.
I thought it might be mental so i try and focus on something else but the urge is always there and keeps me awake.
I have been down for sometime now after a breakup though. Stress relating to my job and lack of exercise due to hip surgery 2 months. Could this be contributing to it or is it a physical thing?
I wake up tired, im exhausted, im moody, zero motivation, im depressed and not sure how much longer I can live my life this way.
I saw a gp who checked my prostate and said it felt normal. I had blood tests done and they found nothing. Ive had scans on my bladder, kidney and prostate and have an appt with an urologist in a days time.
My life is ruined by this condition.
Has anyone heard or been through something similair and managed to treat this wretched condition?
What type of questions should I ask my urologist and how should know if he is a good one?
Any type of guidance would be appreciated.
Thanks for listening
