Default What is causing me to pee every minute?

I have to go pee every 3 minutes or so and only a little bit comes out. There is no pain, no cloudy pee. I went to the ER last night, bit not for this and I asked the Dr. and he had no idea what it could be. He said my pee looked good and there was no infection. But this is really getting me mad beacusse i have to get up every few minutes to pee duirng my sleep at night. I'm not drinking any more or less water. I'm 22 years old.

Had a similar issue ones at about age 25.

If you do at some point in the next couple of days get severe pain sort of in the low back, it's possibly a kidney stone. The blocking makes you feel like you have to pee but then it can't come out. Eventually it starts to hit a spot that hurts and you'll be doubled over.

Sound similar but when i hit the toliet, i do pee. And there is no pain. Maybe just i kink or something in my urtheia? Also, maybe me thinking about it all the time is making it worse.

You might also want to get your blood glucose levels checked. You may have a pancreatic problem. Frequent urination without infection is one of the first signs of the presence of diabetes, as is a seeming unquenchable thirst, pain in the joints (without a history or indication of arthritis), sudden weakness or 'fogginess' (not being able to think clearly), even a feeling of inebriation without drinking. Don't panic - it could be nothing, just a glitch in your system, but it doesn't hurt to question.

I agree, an emergency room Doctor will only help you with the emergency you come in for. You need to get an appointment with a specialist.

Buy a jug of cranberry juice cocktail, and drink a couple ounces a day, which will attack any unfriendly organisms in your urinary tract. If it's a kidney stone, your pain would have been excruciating within a few hours.

Did you notice any swelling of extremities just before that? If you have a brief interval of water retention, it might have cause a frequency when it resolved, but a doctor should be told if you have hand or foot swelling.

Yes, this is plain common sense! Don't play with this since the pain if you let it go will be mind blowing it will hurt so bad!

Yes, cranberry juice IS a good way to clear out the urinary tract, but I'd like to observe that cranberry juice COCKTAIL (or cran-apple juice or other combo variations) is not the best way to ingest it -- especially if diabetes may be a long-shot possibility. Cranberry juice cocktail contains a lot of sugar and cranberry is usually not the most prevalent juice in those bottled concoctions. REAL organic cranberry juice is more expensive, and not quite as readily available, but it's not that hard to find. Where I live it can be found at Albertson's and several other supermarkets, as well as specialty stores such as Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Sprouts, or Sunflower Farm Markets.

It's difficult to drink straight cranberry juice by itself, since it is very sour. But if you get a bottle of the good stuff it can be added to plain water to your taste for each glass of water that you drink all day (start with a tablespoon). If it's impossible for you to drink much even cranberry pills, widely available in the vitamin sections at drug stores and other markets (Costco has them), are better than a sweetened juice.

That said, please see a urologist. You're too young for a weak bladder and malfunctioning kidneys is a SERIOUS problem. Good luck.
