This may be normal: And may be controlled by decreasing your coffee intake, particularly in the afternoon/evening. Caffeine acts as a diuretic as you likely know. Physiologic nocturnal diuresis occurs where the kidneys produce more urine while the body is recumbent as this position causes increased blood flow to the kidney. Urologic problems such as overactive bladder and small bladder capacity require urologic eval. ...Read more

Whatever I eat or drink except water I have to go to the bathroom why is that?

Whatever I eat or drink except water I have to go to the bathroom why is that?

This may be: A heightened "gastro-colic" reflex (The intestines increase motility when the stomach is DISTENDED that's why water doesn't "do it") This overactive reflex is seen in some cases of irritable bowel syndrome and if really bothersome can be reduced with the use of a prescription anti-motility drug!
Discuss with your Family Physician or PCP Primary care Provider)
Hope this helps!

Likely ok: While diabetes, urinary tract infections & some other illnesses can cause frequent urination, your urinary patterns sound normal. Vit c & soda can increase urinary frequency as well. If you're having pain, or don't feel like you're fully emptying your bladder, or if you're still concerned, please see your pcp. You do need to try & increase your water intake to about 8 glasses per day. ...Read more

Peeing too much: Many things can cause urinating frequently. Things to note would be if you are also urinating large volumes, if you don't feel completely empty or if you have trouble starting to urinate. I would look at any medications you take that might cause this, coffee/caffeine/alcohol can increase how frequently we urinate. Diabetes, urinary tract infections and over active bladder may cause it as well. ...Read more

So why is it that when I drink from a water bottle all day and I don't go to the bathroom much, am I not drinking enough?

Maybe (not). . .: You didn't mention how many bottles you consume nor the size of said water bottle. So, yes, it's possible that perhaps you're not drinking enough water. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/healthy-living/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/water/art-20044256 for a rough answer. I typically recommend drinking enough to make you void (pee) clear urine. ...Read more

If I need to use bathroom short while after drinking bottle of water, does that mean im not absorbing it? Why does it seem to go to bladder so fast?

Likely is normal: If the body's fluid status is normal, drinking more fluid will prompt a rapid excretion as urine to maintain the normal fluid status. If you have been hot and sweating or have not had much to drink and the same urination occurs after drinking water, then your kidneys are not functioning normally to retain needed fluid. The blood sodium level is the marker for proper kidney function for fluids. ...Read more

Can drinking only water make you use the bathroom a lot?

Can drinking only water make you use the bathroom a lot?

Yes: What goes in must come out. If you drink enough water to stay hydrated, your urine should be clear or pale yellow. Dark yellow suggests dehydration. Of course, there are many other reasons for peeing a lot such as diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus & urinary tract infections. Diuretics such as caffeine & alcohol can also make you pee more than expected for volume consumed. ...Read more

What if I do not drink before bed and I still wake up to use the bathroom?

What if I do not drink before bed and I still wake up to use the bathroom?

Worth checking: You'd do well to visit your physician and get a simple test to see whether you can concentrate your urine. Anything from a smoldering kidney infection to sickle cell trait can cause this in someone your age. We'll also want to rule out diabetes insipidus. Glad you're taking care to observe your body. Best wishes. ...Read more

There was blood when I wiped after bathroom. I was drinking a little last night. Should I be worried?

There was blood when I wiped after bathroom. I was drinking a little last night. Should I be worried?

Not normal, get help: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Brisk bleeding warrants emergency care. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.g. rectal trauma), but evaluation is always appropriate. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...Read more

Gastritis: You have an upset stomach (gastritis).
The vomiting has caused dehydration and therefore your urine production is reduced.
You need hydration with fluids, maybe intravenously in an urgent care center.
In addition get a pregnancy test to make sure this is not " morning sickness"
good luck. ...Read more

I drink a lots of water every day and I am very frequently urinary and is annoying me always go bathroom. I want to know if normal?

I drink a lots of water every day and I am very frequently urinary and is annoying me always go bathroom. I want to know if normal?

Lot of water: If you are drinking a large amount of water, your increased urination is due to your kidneys doing their job, which is eliminating excess water. Try cutting back on your fluid intake to see if they reduces the amount of urine you are making. If it does, you will need to drink less fluid in the future to cut down your frequent visits to the bathroom. Good luck! ...Read more

Male 48 fall sleep around 10:30 pm wake up around 3 am go to bathroom and can't get to sleep again, it happens once in a while, stop drinking liquids at 7 pm, what could it be?

Enlarged prostate: Early awakening can be caused by: depression, waking to void secondary to enlarged prostate, sleep apnea...among other causes. If the awakening is only occasional that would likely eliminate depression as the cause (unless you are feeling depressed). The likely cause is enlargement of the prostate (BPH). Try to eliminate liquids after 7pm. For more on BPH see>http://bit. Ly/1fJa24j Speak with your DR ...Read more

I have Crohn's disease and everytime I drink coffee, I must use the bathroom many times after. Any reasons why?

I have Crohn's disease and everytime I drink coffee, I must use the bathroom many times after. Any reasons why?

Common symptoms: Coffee and caffeine often increase intestinal motility and thus trigger bowel movements. (One of my patients called coffee her "colonic tonic".) With Crohn's disease, you may be extra sensitive to this normal effect. You may need to stop drinking coffee or reduce the amount. Best to discuss with the doctor who cares for your Crohn's disease. Good luck. ...Read more
