Injection: A urinary tract infection can often cause frequent urination, pain with urination and the feeling of needing to go right now. Diabetes can also cause this so make sure that you have been properly tested for this and aren't simply assuming that you don't have it. Prostatic hypertrophy can lead to 'dribbling' and a sense of needing to urinate; especially at night.

Answer should be multiple causes: UTis, overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, prostatatic enlargement, prostatitis, stone or foreign body in bladder., bladder tumor, bladder diverticulum, diabetes insipidus eith renal or central, acid urine producing bevcerages (ie OJ), occasioanlly spicy foods. This is an incomplete list.

Many causes: Primary cause for frequent urination can be due to irritation of bladder lining from inflammation or chemical irritation. Structural abnormalities, such as small bladder, bladder diverticulum, or psychological issues eg anxiety can all cause frequency of urination. Cystitis is probably most common cause of acute frequency. Overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, prostatitis, acid urine from oj.

Chinese Medicine may be very helpful in a case like this. Once diabetes or other serious issues are ruled out, then consider seeing a Chinese Medicine practitioner or homeopath.
