  • Waking up more than once during the night

    Idk if this is normal or not, but for as long as I can remember I’ve woken up 1-3x during the night to use the bathroom. I try to get 8-9 hours sleep. My urine is always clear. At 1st I thought it was having caffeine later in the day that could be responsible, but no change after 2 weeks of cutting it out. I easily drink close to 1.5 gallons of fluid daily & just in conversation with a co worker over lunch the other day he mentioned he read somewhere once that if you’re over hydrated from drinking too much fluids during the day you’re body just simply tries getting rid of it @ nite & it’s normal to get up & pee. True or false or is it something maybe I should bring up to my dr finally when I go for a routine check up next week?

    This is known as "nocturia". It can be related to daily fluid intake habits, but can also be associated with many other things including age, prostate issues, sleep apnea, diabetes, and many others. If it bothers you, it's reasonable to ask about at your appointment.

      This happened to me after GOMAD. i saw a urologist and got checked up and down and it turned out to just be this:

      Dunno if it applies to you, but if it is the remedy is pretty easy, just try and increase the intervals that you go throughout the day and keep them fairly stable
