Frequent and urgent urination

Hi, I'm a male 49 and for a while now i get Frequent and urgent urination! I will be fine for about 3 to 4 weeks and then i'll have to go about every 20 minutes ! So the first and 2nd night is tuff, i don't get much sleep....i'll get that  urgent feeling within 20 to 30 of going to the bathroom......if i get up and start walking around the feeling goes away for a little while but this goes on for about 7 days and can't take it any longer......i cant start to work at my old job because of this so i have no insurance....
A doctor friend of mind put me on different enlarged prostrate drugs but nothing have helped at all...

Hi,
The problem may have something to do with your diet.
If you take a fair amount of coffee, tea and alcohol,  (as well as a large amount of fluids),  you may need to get up at night to void.
Another thing to consider is diabetes, one of the symptoms would involve pissing a lot, so it may good to have yourself screened.
Stay positive.

Well the one thing i don't drink is coffee, tea and alcohol,  most times its only iced tea,water,juice or about 1 or 2 cans of soda a day....it just seems like perfect timing, every about 25 days this starts,,...its just that its just so urgent  that i have to go! it comes on so fast that i have about 30 seconds to get to a bathroom! and sometimes i just have no control over it if i wait a little bit longer...
thanks for the info

Hi,

The iced tea may be contributory.
Another thing to consider is that the problem may not be with obstruction but with the bladder. There are some age related changes in the capacity of the bladder to determine when it is full to capacity and hence there is a tendency to empty even when the bladder is not yet really full.
There are a studies that determine the dynamics of the bladder. Perhaps this could be another avenue to consider.
Stay positive.
