I am 46 and I have been peeing multiple times an hour since I was 20. I have had every kind of test and diagnosis. Nothing has helped. Everyone says something different. A few years ago a doctor put an interstim in my butt - it sits on a nerve connected to my bladder....MAJOR MISTAKE.... IT'S BEEN A NIGHTMARE..... DON'T EVER LET ANYONE PUT THIS IN YOU.... it's the new, upcoming thing for this problem, I can only say now I have TWO BIG problems now. Trying to save up my money to have this thing that malfunctions and eletrocutes me taken out. Can anyone help?

  • There is another link on this site that is similar to this one... http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=24900#post24900. I just read something on this today. "A hormone called antidiuretic hormone (ADH) causes the kidney cells to put water back into the blood stream, thus decreasing the amount of water in the urine. More ADH generally is produced at night (resulting in less urine production) than during the day. This design prevents your bladder from filling completely while you are asleep. In some cases, a lack of ADH at night (either because the pituitary gland does not produce enough or because the kidneys are not able to detect the hormone) will result in large volumes of urine being produced while one sleeps. This necessitates regular visits to the restroom, or for the young child or "heavy sleeper," a wet bed." This is quoted from part of an article written by one of the science teachers in our high school. See page 9 on this website http://www.rfpa.org/downloads/8310.pdf. Title: Hormones and God's Governing Hand. THere is more about drinking caffenated beverages...which in turn can lead to sugar being a "Pick me up"? Read the whole article for more info.Hope this helpsBrenda
