I am a 34-year old male and basically I have to wake up at least 3 times per night to urinate. During the day my bladder acts quite normally, but at night it doesn't let me sleep. I usually wake up at around 3am for the first time, with an erection and an incredible urge to pee. I go, pass a normal amount of urine, go back to bed... and then it happens again about every hour: wake up with erection, go to pee (a few drops now), go back to bed.
I tried, without any success:
- Getting off coffee and any kind of soda
- Eating dinner earlier
- Not drinking any water after 8pm
I consulted my GP and underwent a battery of tests, which concluded that:
- I have no UTIs
- I don't have diabetes
- My prostate, liver and kidneys are fine
- My bladder empties normally when I urinate
- I don't have celiac disease
She's adamant that my IBS and lactose intolerance (never really officially diagnosed, though) have nothing to do with this and her conclusion is that this is anxiety/stress and to manage that. Would you agree?
