Can you overstretch bladder by drinking too much liquid? Thought I had UTI, but all tests neg & Dr said symptoms due to overdoing it on liquid. Said to cut back & would see improvement w/in a wk.

In brief: If your

symptom is frequent urination the it can improve with reducing water intake.

In brief: Overstretch bladder

Jenni, You can actually drink to much liquid, but the overstretch is usually due to holding your urine back or having an obstruction.
I would agree with your doctor to drink and hydrate as you get thirsty instead of drinking to fulfill an amount. Usually 2L of water a day is plenty.
