In brief: Frequent urination

If you are really urinating every 5-10 minutes, go to an emergency room (er) to be evaluated.
You have the risk of getting dehydrated if you cannot keep up with your urinary losses of water. Go to there and get your blood work taken and your urine analyzed to make sure you do not have either diabetes mellitus or insipidus. If you don't, the er can determine the cause of your excessive urination.
