Frequent Urination: Having to urinate more than eight times a day or waking up to go to the bathroom more than once a night is considered frequent urination. Symptoms include urgency, frequency, hesitancy, dribbling, straining, hematuria, and urinary incontinence. Treatment of frequent urination depends upon the underlying cause.
Interstitial Cystitis Interstitial cystitis (IC or inflammation of the bladder) causes pain, urinary frequency, incontinence, painful urination, urgency, and nocturia. The cause of interstitial cystitis is unknown. As there is no cure for IC, treatment may involve dietary changes, quitting smoking, exercise, bladder training, medication, or surgery.
