Peeing Like Crazy During The Night

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.  
    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
