I need some medical advice here. For those of you not interested in reading about my symptoms you might want to read elsewhere today. I’m hoping some of you might have an idea of what might be going on.
One thing that I can usually count on is a restful nights sleep with no interruptions. But several months ago I had a strange night. After a very normal day, normal eating and drinking I ended up getting up 5 or 6 times during the night to pee. Normally I don’t even get up once. What was more surprising is that was that it wasn’t just an irritation or the feeling that I had to go; I had a full bladder each time. Don’t know where all that fluid was coming from. It was annoying but except for the getting up and down no real problem or after affects and I just forgot about it…until Monday night when it happened again.
I was in bed by about 11:30 and was up at least 5 times before 5 with a full bladder each time. I was paying more attention this time – still couldn’t think of anything I had done differently on Monday. There was some good news, after getting rid of all that liquid my weight was down nearly 2 pounds. And I noticed when I got to the gym today I felt like I had much more energy. For the past few days I would go to the gym and do my workout but I just felt sooooo tired. Today I had much more energy at the gym. Otherwise today I felt the same as always. I haven’t been thirsty or see anything different in how I feel. And I haven’t been going to the bathroom more during the day, just when I went to bed last night. And of courses this has only happened twice now – several months apart.
So all you smart people – do I have a problem? It’s about time for my yearly physical. Do I need to be tested for something? Evidently I am retaining fluid sometime but not all the time. Why would that be? Anyway, if you have any ideas let me know. This one has me stumped.
