I'm a 30 year old female:
For the past, maybe 2 years I have experienced frequent urination that has now gotten to the point where it obstructs daily life, and inconveniences others.
I have nocturia pretty bad. At least 2 times a night I have to get up to urinate, and one night recently, got up 8 times.
Sometimes while still on the toilet, I can tell there is a little tiny drop left that has failed to come out, so sitting an extra 5 minutes and really pushing hard voids the rest, but that is severely inconvenient. I call it a "seed" because if I ignore it, 10 minutes later the 'seed' has grown into a full bladder fairly quickly.
My diet: Poor, probably. Its winter so I haven't been as active, and I haven't been eating the healthiest. But this occured even when I did eat healthy and exercise well. I stopped drinking caffeine for the most part, as well as anything else I can think of that is a diuretic. Even if I don't drink anything say, after 7pm and go to bed at 10 or 11, I still wake up and pee at night at least once.
I went to the doctor who had me submit a urinary sample. The next day they called to say the lab found no infection but they did find blood, and I had to go in the next day and submit a second one. I haven't heard back and it has been 2 weeks I keep forgetting to call, but I will do that Monday when their offices are open again.
I am not incontinent, sometimes the bladder isn't even FULL, I can tell it isn't, its just a drop or two, but I obsess about it and HAVE to go get rid of it. Sometimes I have to sit for a few seconds before any will come out.
I do NOT have incontinence, burning, itching, or pain. Just peeing all the time, regardless of how much is in there. Could be a drop, could be a full bladder.
Any ideas? If there is blood in my urine again (I hadn't had my period for at least 6 days prior to when I gave the doctor the samples) what will that mean?
I've done research on the internet, and some things sound similar but not all of my symptoms match up.
