Can I cure cystitis by drinking lots of water so I pee more and flush it out?

Antibiotics better: Cystitis can sometimes be cured by drinking lots of water and urinating frequently, but may take a long time + could become chronic cystitis. Antibiotics are usually rapidly effective, often with a single dose, 3 day or 7 day courses of Nitrofurantoin (macodantin), trimethoprim-sulfa (bactrim or cipro (ciprofloxacin). All should be inexpensive and safe provided you aren't allergic.

I've been drinking water constantly and I used to pee like every hour and now I'm only paying twice a day. Should I be concerned with that?

I've been drinking water constantly and I used to pee like every hour and now I'm only paying twice a day. Should I be concerned with that?

POSSIBLY: Make note of your ins and outs with amounts measured and the times. It could be that your bladder is holding more urine because it is nice and dilute now and the larger volume and bladder compliance make for less trips with more urine output.

IF I HAVE BEEN HAVING THE URGENT FEELING OF HAVING TO PEE, BUT WHEN I USE THE RESTROOM AND NO ACTUAL PEE COMES OUT; WILL DRINKING WATER HELP?

IF I HAVE BEEN HAVING THE URGENT FEELING OF HAVING TO PEE, BUT WHEN I USE THE RESTROOM AND NO ACTUAL PEE COMES OUT; WILL DRINKING WATER HELP?

Hesitancy & urgency.: You’re describing urinary urgency and hesitancy, which is new could represent a urinary tract infection. If chronic, could represent an abnormality with bladder function, as we may see with a pelvic floor abnormality. You should have a urinalysis done to see if you have an infection.

I have HKPP & hypoglycemia. I can't stop drinking water and peeing. I drink 1.5-2 gallons a day. Is this okay?

I have HKPP & hypoglycemia. I can't stop drinking water and peeing. I drink 1.5-2 gallons a day. Is this okay?

Of concern: Your symptoms are of concern for at least 2 conditions: diabetes insipidus and psychogenic polydipsia that may worsen your Hypokalemic periodic paralysis and hypoglycemia. Definitely worth a visit with your primary care provider for further blood and urine studies and review of your meds. How is your sugar running?

I feel like peeing instantly after drinking water and so I do. Its been since years. Should I get checked up or its normal. It dosent leak anytime?

If..: If you feel constantly thirsty and the urinary frequency happens all the time then I would say you should get checked. Diabetes is a possibility and with no further information at hand I cannot say this is definitely normal. Visit your doctor for evaluation.

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

Is it okay if I drink one or two sips of water every time I feel like drinking water? Drinking a glass at one go makes me pee a lot!

Is it okay if I drink one or two sips of water every time I feel like drinking water? Drinking a glass at one go makes me pee a lot!

Water: Water is the best fluid to drink. If you are willing to drink a few sips at a time that is better than not drinking at all. F you drink a lot of water it is normal to have to void a lot

I went from drinking tons of soda to none at all, and drinking water instructed by my dentist. My urine is clear and I'm peeing more. Is this normal?

I went from drinking tons of soda to none at all, and drinking water instructed by my dentist. My urine is clear and I'm peeing more. Is this normal?

It is very normal: The color of the urine is usually clear to slightly light yellow. Plus, quitting soda can be an excellent first step towards a healthier lifestyle.

Dehydration: You may be dehydrated, eventually it will all come out, some women retain fluids around their peiod time and then hormonal changes will let them diurese it.

Bladder overactive: Label does not help unless you are getting some relief. Need to find cause of overactivity. More important if u have to get up to urinate > once/night (nocturia). Or ru drinking too much water? Worth consulting with urologist to find cause of your urinary frequency.

So my penis hurts when I pee, to be more specific the meatus. Relieved by drinking water, washing it. How long for recovery?

So my penis hurts when I pee, to be more specific the meatus. Relieved by drinking water, washing it. How long for recovery?

DYSURIA: This is a symptom that can be caused by many things, the bladder and most of the urethra refers pain and burning to the tip of the penis and meatus. Even hemorrhoids can cause this when inflamed. It could be something as harmless as an allergy also.

Almost 3 years old. Slight cough, fever. No wheezing, small mucus, fast breathing, Active. Not feeding well but drinking water and peeing. Worried?

Almost 3 years old. Slight cough, fever. No wheezing, small mucus, fast breathing, Active. Not feeding well but drinking water and peeing. Worried?

Worried, but ok: It sounds most likely to be a respiratory virus. This should hit it's peak around 3-5 days, with cough and congestion going away after 10-14 days. Watch for fever over 102.5, poor urine output, lethargy, irritability, breathing over 40/min, difficulty breathing with stomach and neck muscle use, or wheezing. If those develop, bring him in.

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.

Does drinking water work for clean urine toxicology screen?

Does drinking water work for clean urine toxicology screen?

Sometimes...but: Good toxicology labs test the ph and temperature of the urine to identify adulterants added as well as the specific gravity and creatinine (body waste product) content to check for dilution. Specifically short term "water loading" will cause creatinine levels from 2-10 which is reported on the report as a possible false negative and repeat test recommended.

Need doctor's help! Will not drinking water cause fishy smelling urine?

Need doctor's help! Will not drinking water cause fishy smelling urine?

Why need help?: Urine will be more concentrated ; thus have stronger odor if total fluid intake is less. Water is best beverage to dilute urine ; thus make less smelly, however tea or soup for instance can also supply sufficient fluid.
