Frequent Trips to the Restroom

Is frequent urination a symptom of anxiety? I've read in several places that it is and also that it is not. I have normal blood work and do not have a UTI, but sometimes a just pee and pee all damn day. It's really starting to get me down. I'm 38, so I hasten to attribute it to just getting old. Anyone else have this problem and if so, what do you do about it?

  • Yes I remember one time during my worst anxiety phase I had a few night in a row where I promise you, I went to urinate atleast every 20 minutes. I could not get any sleep and I was Ofcourse scared because I didn't know what was wrong. I thought I had a uti or bladder issues. And even after getting blood work done and the doc checking my urinalysis I was not a uti nor did I have bladder issue. So I'm assuming this was all due to my anxiety. I haven't had one of those nights again so far. And I hope I don't because it was awful plus I kept having that strong sensation in that area that whole time. So I'd say yes anxiety can cause this too.

  • Yeah this has been pretty unnerving, but thankfully so far today I've been much better and not going to the RR so frequently. I also skipped my morning cup of coffee today, so I'm wondering if maybe my anxiety is being worsened by it.

  • This is not one to worry yourself over.
