Every night I end up having to pee 2-4 times per night only at night is it frequent. What could be cause?
UTI?: If this is something new, sometimes having urinary frequency (symptoms you described) can be a sign of a urinary tract infection.

Either way, close follow up with your PCP is mandatory. ...Read more

I pee over 20 times a day sometimes 3-5 times in middle of night. Anything I can do or cause? Already slow down on liquids.

Ever since I have gave birth four years ago I still have to pee all the time. I still wake up in the middle of the night to go to what can cause this?
Problematic: Orthodox answer is that mechanical trauma of childbirth loosens the pelvic floor and muscles that tighten urethra outlet tract coming from bladder.

What can cause severe pain under my right rib and super severe pain in back kidney area especially at night and morning. Lite green pee also.
UTI vs porphyria: "light green pee" is an unusual symptom. The most common cause of fever and flank pain is a urinary tract injection (UTI) or kidney stone.
