I recently started drinking water at work. Roughly 60 oz. Over an 8 hour period. The only problem is I have to pee every 20 minutes. IS that normal?

I recently started drinking water at work. Roughly 60 oz. Over an 8 hour period. The only problem is I have to pee every 20 minutes. IS that normal?

Yes: Amount of urine has to do with amount of intake. You drink 60 oz in 8 hours ie 2.5 oz per 20 minutes. If you measure it you will prove that you pass 2.5 oz per void. Younger persons hold it & go every 2 hours to pass 15 ounces at once but with age, irritable bladder (or prostate in men) you need to go more often. You don't need this much fluids unless you have kidney stones. Spread 60 oz over 12hr ...Read more

I have to urinate a lot and nothing comes. Feel a little bloated, but not much. If traumatic cystitis, can I just drink lots of water and let it heal?

I have to urinate a lot and nothing comes. Feel a little bloated, but not much. If traumatic cystitis, can I just drink lots of water and let it heal?

See your doctor.: If this is the case, you really should see your doctor to rule out something worse. Unless a doctor told you, you can't be sure it's from traumatic cystitis. It might be prostatitis, or benign prostatic hypertrophy, or you might have damaged your urethra from trauma. Even if it is cystitis, it can lead to a more serious infection in your kidney, so see your doctor to find out. ...Read more
