I am a 19 year old female and every night I have to get up to urinate at least 3 times and sometimes more. Sometimes it is only a little bit. It is very frustrating because it interfers with my sleep. I make a point not to drink anything for before bed yet I still have to go. I also get headaches behind my eyes, sometimes a weird tickling feeling in my right hand and legs and joint pain. Along with many other symptoms like weakness felt in my arms and shoulders and fatigue. What is going on?

  • Are you having problems getting to sleep, then realize that you might as well pee? or do you wake up out of a sound sleep. If so, then maybe you have a bladder infection. Does the urine smell funny? is it concentrated? can you see WBC's in it? Many students in the medical field become mildly hypochondriacal when studying medicine, disease and anatomy. Could this be what's happening? Maybe your problems will resolve if you get enough sleep. Have you tried some Tylenol PM or something similar?

  • i wake up several times per night to pee out of sound sleep. It doesnt smell funny and I dont know how I could see WBC's in it. Im not a hypochondriac by the way. It is just interfering with my sleep.
