Peeing Like Crazy During The Night
0

12 posts in this topic

I've read some of the other threads about needing to pee a lot during the night. I've always had this problem, too. However, in the last few nights, I've been peeing excessively. I have a bed pot (so I don't have to walk to the bathroom) and last night I peed 1 1/2 quarts (6 cups). A few nights ago, I peed nearly 2 quarts (8 cups). The weird thing is I just returned home after a trip abroad to Iceland, Finland and Estonia. There, I encountered few problems and slept well most of the nights. But now that I'm back, I'm just constantly waking up and having to pee a lot.

I haven't been drinking excessive amounts of liquids (in fact, I probably don't drink enough liquid), so this is really puzzling. I've been on the gluten-free diet for 2 1/2 months, but this issue has never gotten to this extent until now. Also, I'm having a lot of breast pain (and it's not right before my period) in the last week. Each day it seems to get worse. I have no idea what's going on with me right now.

Fortunately, I will see a GI on Tuesday and maybe she will have some ideas. I welcome anyone's imput on this.

Did you have a fun trip?

Maybe you eat more salt/sodium at home. Could be retaining water and then during the night "unretaining" . Might explain breast pain, too. Right at the beginning of pregnancy you tend to pee a lot and have breast pain. Maybe you had too much fun on your trip. :P

I had a great time on my trip. There is no way that I'm pregnant (I've not been dating anyone for nearly 2 years) so I can rule that out. Also, I've been tested for diabetes several times and all the tests have come back negative.

I did notice when I got back I had gained about 3-4 pounds. But now I seem to be losing some of that weight (1-2 pounds lost) since returning. I do think that there is probably a lot of excess fluid in my breasts right now. They seem larger than usual.

This is all so strange...

Sounds like fluid retention. Bigger boobs wouldn't be bad if they didn't hurt. Maybe a hormone issue, too? They can get off kilter at any age.

I am just reading your post tonight and wondering if the GI doctor had anything good to say? How upsetting! It sounds like fluid retention but then at night its almost like you're taking a diuretic! Strange?!

Well, I hope you found an answer. Do tell!

:)

I welcome anyone's imput on this.

the GI thinks that it's fluid retention from my recent trip overseas. I'm not peeing so much now at night. However, I do wake up several times still :(

I'm seeing another doc today about the sore breasts.

The GI I saw thinks that my Celiac is mild and that many of my symptoms (fatigue, insomnia, restless legs, acid reflux, yeast infections, sinus pressure, depression ,anxiety, bruising, frequent nose bleeds, etc) are not related to my Celiac and may not go away. I don't necessarly agree with her about this. I mean, some of these things probably won't go away, but I'm sure that some must be related to my Celiac!

Honestly, what you write is a lot of classic pregnancy symptoms. Assuming you know you can't be pregnant, I would consider seeing an endocrinologist, to check on what the hormones are doing.

Excessive urination can be a symptom of diabetes.

I just got blood tested for diabetes today. I've had several diabetes tests in the past, all have come out negative. Fortunately, I've been peeing much less at night now. But the sore breasts aren't going away. I've also been scheduled to do a follow up sonogram (I had one back in April for the same reason). Some fibroids were found in my left breast but the doctors assured me that they were harmless.

Hey! Get the doc to explain why they think they are "fibroids" and nothing more serious. If the explanation isn't complete, keep asking or take the x-rays for a second opinion. I'm a little older (ok a lot) than you but I know many women and a man who's concerns were pushed aside the first time and should not have been. I don't want to scare you needlessly, but I want you to be treated if needed. Keep me informed.

FYI to anyone reading this:

It's better to know your numbers and not just accept "negative". Diabetes/blood sugar issues are a spectrum. Know where you fall on that spectrum. A fasting blood sugar is not a good indication of overall blood sugar. My fasting BG can be within the normal range and it was on testing day. I was DX by the OGTT, and my BG went up so high so fast I was shaking uncontrollably the first half hour. If the doc. had gone by fasting blood sugar only, I would have gone undiagnosed. Any one-time blood sugar check is not a good measure. An A1C-a measure of average blood sugar is better.

Well, yesterday I got a call and was told that I have a urinary tract infection. I said that I didn't notice a lot of pain when passing urine, but they said that wasn't always a symptom. i've also had a hard time emptying completely, which is another symptom of a UTI. Anyhow, I'm on medication now and the peeing has gotten much better under control.

I was spotting a little today and had slight cramps, so I may just be starting my period early this month. My last one started July 3, so it's only been 20 days since the last one started. But I know that some women have menstrual irregularities as a symptom of Celiac? Most of my periods are very evenly spaced out, but occasionally they come really early or late.

    • Formal dinner suggestions
      You could take shrimp cocktail -- just ice it & no need for heating that then. How about following up with some coconut crusted fish with some nice veggies on the side? That could just be nuked to reheat & only takes a minute or two. Make sure when they put it in the microwave that it is covered in case there is gluten lurking on the ceiling of the microwave that can fall down into his food.
    • Formal dinner suggestions
      Hi people. I'd just like some ideas for what I can take for V to a formal family dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant has stated there is no gluten-free safe option so I have to take his meal and dessert.  I can make him gluten-free chocolate cake so thats fine.  But its a three course dinner, and I need to transport it there. Hopefully they will be happy to heat it if needed.  Something really nice and special would be good because everyone else will be eating really  nice meals.  
    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
