IC: 24y female has frequency of urination, fatigue and hunger. Certainly diabetes & infections have been ruled out. The medication might explain the fatigue. If nothing can be discovered, then Interstitial Cystitis, IC, is a consideration; as is Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, which is associated with IC. See comments:

If Joint Hypermobility Syndrome is suspected, then the Beighton Hypermobility Scoring System needs to be reviewed: http://hypermobility.org/help-advice/hypermobility-syndromes/beighton-score/

Amongst my industrial injury clients have been females whose IC symptoms remitted after they had surgical fusion of a disordered & hypermobile sacroiliac joint caused by lifting and slip & fall injuries; diagnosed via Occupational Disabilities Guidelines, ODG, criteria.

Interstitial Cystitis, IC, symptoms of frequency & urgency are common symptoms of Fibromyalgia; wherein pelvic girdle sacroiliac joint subluxation impinges overlying presacral neural plexus/parasympathetic nerves responsible for urinary bladder smooth muscle contraction & bladder evacuation. Rational therapy of IC includes pelvic girdle stabilization via Prolotherapy/fusion.
