Could be: A urine test will help. Seeing a doctor will allow them to get more detailed history and a physical exam which will help differentiate between other things as U may have a kidney stone instead. Hydrate well in the meantime

Can drinking 2 liters of soda (non diet) per day cause chronic frequent urination?

Can drinking 2 liters of soda (non diet) per day cause chronic frequent urination?

2 liters of soda: What do you mean by "chronic frequent urination"? Is your urine dark, concentrated, or light, dilute? If you drink too much, your urine should be light drinking two liters of fluid/day is that abnormal especially in warm climates. Other things ingested contain water, fruits and soups, for example. If you are not feeling weak nor losing weight, you probably have nothing to worry about.

Would drinking 2 liters of soda (non diet) per day cause chronic frequent urination?

It could: If there was caffeine in the sodas- which is a diuretic and makes you go to the bathroom- it could cause chronic frequent urination. The same could happen from drinking too much tea or coffee or other beverages containing caffeine (mountain dew) Check to see if your soda contains caffeine- If not- see your physician for additional info about your condition.

It might be UTI?: Your urinary complaints are suggestive of infection in your urinary tract (UTI). This is not uncommon in sexually active females. This can be verified by getting your Urine checked for infection (Urinalysis (UA). Your Primary care doctor can help you with this problem. Besides UA you will likely need TO TAKE antibiotics to treat the UTI.

Female, age 24. Diag. W/ chronic hives a year ago. Past few months: dry mouth, constant thirst (water 84+ oz/day)rapid heart beat, frequent urination.?

See endocrinologist: 4 conditions come to mind: a. drinking too much water from an obsessive urge leading to water intoxication. b. Diabetes insipidus -the pituitary no longer secretes the hormone (ADH) to control the urinary flow. (c)Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. (d)If you are taking a lot of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the hives it would lead to dryness in the mouth->thirst. All of the above require a visit to the doctor.

Honey: While Codeine is probably the best cough suppressant it does cause side-effects in many patients and can't be used. Dextromethorphan can be tried (dm) or a teaspoon of honey may help. It may be better to diagnose why you are coughing and find a more specific treatment depending on the reason for the cough.

Typically cough is caused by either infection (bronchitis) from virus, bacteria or fungus) and a chest X-ray is a simple test to check for it. If there is no infection found, cough can be due to allergy (airway sensitivity) or low grade Asthma.

Gf refuses to treat her chronic cough on religious grounds. So what do I do?

Gf refuses to treat her chronic cough on religious grounds. So what do I do?

Personal choice: I'm not sure what 'religious grounds' would stop her from taking good care of her temple but, maybe she has her own reasons. In the end, you can't force her to get evaluated but, you can tell her how her coughing affects you and the relationship. If she chooses not to address it, then you are the one who needs to make a choice- to be with her and not talk about the coughing or to move on...
