Over the last 2 years I have been experiencing frequent urination problems. I am a 32 year old female with no known medical issues. 2 years ago I started having this problem I went to several different doctors in local walk in clinics in my area. For the first few months I was on and off different bladder infection medications...50% of the time the doctors said I had no signs of an infection but gave me meds just in case they missed something. At about the 6 month point I went for several tests...ultra sounds not even sure what else and they consistently found nothing. I was eventually sent to get my urinary tube stretched??? not even sure what it was they were doing they put me on a local and shoved something in my urinary tube which cased me some discomfort for several days. Needless to say this did nothing to help the problem and since that point I have been on and off bladder infection pills administered to me by several different walkin clinic doctors. I am at the end of my rope and would welcome any suggestions of things to inquire about at my next visit...I'm feeling very frustrated with the medical system. My symptoms are as follows:

No pain
frequent urination
high volume of urine when going
when I drink any liquids within 5 min I have to use the washroom
there is always urine (a lot)
feels like my body is not absorbing the liquids I drink

Secondary issues:
If I go out for alcoholic drinks with friends the next day I have a constant tingling in my bladder and don't have any liquids coming out...lasts about 2 to three hours.( no pain however)

Seemingly unrelated but other issues I have:

Tend to get light headed at certain points of the day...almost a detached feeling the same feeling you get when you take those daytime cold remedies..which I avoid for that very reason.

If anybody has any idea what could be causing these symptoms I would welcome the feedback eveytime I go into the clinics they tend to brush me off I even had a doctor tell me I drink to much water!!!@ And of course the opposite drink more?/// I don't know what to do anymore!

Help

HelpHad something very similar. Saw lots of urologists and had a zillion tests done. Finally received help from a non-traditional medical person. Told me he sees this a lot. Pardon me if I don't relate it correctly, but my recollection was that I had "gravel" in my kidneys and gall bladder (I think this is what he said) but in effect, I was getting the gravel in the bladder. Caused irritation, frequent urination, certain beverages (like a beer or a cola) kept me running to the bathroom for several hours. Up at night. More prone to UTIs as get older. He put me on some stuff that was put out by Enzyme Solutions. In days I was feeling better. He told me that what would help if money was tight, was eating a small raw potato with coconut oil (a solid) and sea salt (non-iodized). Sounds weird but when I ran out of the enzymes and started to have problems I ate the potato and it did the job until I got my order.Good luck.
