Frequent urination can be caused by a variety of different disorders. Typically it is a symptom of a urinary tract infection, but it can be something as simple as increased stress or caffeine consumption. It can also be caused by a more serious condition such as an overactive thyroid or stroke.
This condition by itself is not cause for alarm, however if you do not see a simple explanation for this symptom you should schedule an appointment to talk with Dr. Gordon M. Castleberry by calling 662-324-1097.
Symptoms of frequent urination in men can point to more serious conditions such as diabetes, urinary tract infection, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or other prostate problems. In some cases, bladder cancer and dysfunction as well as other medications may also bring about too frequent urination. Waking up in the middle of the night to urinate is known as nocturia. Individuals suffering from severe nocturia may need to get up five or six times in the night.
The need to urinate more often than normal may or may not go together with an increase in the amount of urine. The reason for frequent urination can be attributed to something as simple as increased stress or consumption of caffeine or it can be caused by a more serious condition such as an overactive thyroid, stroke or heart disease.
