Up all night

by big mick   June 6, 2013  

Strange one here.I have a problem peeing 4 plus times at night.My thinking is salt level is too low because it seems the more I ride the worse my problem is.Anyone else with the same problem.My prostate is ok so it's the only answer I can think of

Mushy or garden?

Could be diabetes or many other conditions.
Solution: ask a doctor not an internet forum.

Seen the doctor and I'am fine but still up every 2 hours through the nighti Just wondered if it was a common problem with high mileage cycling or is it just me

Just because your prostate is ok doesn't mean there's nothing wrong... You could have bladder outflow obstruction or detrusor instability.... Or maybe you drink tea late at night Smile

I have a similar problem, apart its all day for me, because of the medication I'm on, plus taking on extra fluids when on the bike. Some days I lose track of how many times I've been to the toilet. My "record" is 27 times in a day to urinate.....

Do you take medication for anything or drink something more than anything else?

Something is not right and the Dr is the person to ask. You need to go back (or get a better Dr).
Prostate problem symptoms are the feeling of needing to pee but not being able to.
My first thoughts are a urinary tract infection (smelly urine)or maybe you are drinking too much at the wrong time of day? (clear urine) Too many caffeinated drinks? (clear urine)

I do drink lots of tea and my urine does run clear sometimes so you could be onto something there Sideburn

Only thing I can think of is that you're drinking too much during and after your rides because of lack of salts. I use electrolyte mixes whilst on the bike and then have another full one when I get home. This stopped me drinking too much. Every 2 hours seems excessive though. It does sound like you need a full on check up
