When Should You Be Concerned About Frequent Urination?

While everyone occasionally has days when they feel like they have to pee all the time, by and large these incidences can be traced back to a cause—a marked increase of fluid intake, especially when its too much coffee or alcohol. But sometimes urinating too often can be cause for concern. If it continues for an extended period of time (rather than passing after a day or two), other strange symptoms occur, or the activities of your day are being disrupted, it might be time to see a doctor. 

Since frequent urination can be a symptom of a larger problem, such as urinary tract infections, bladder stones, and diabetes, among other things, if you feel like something is wrong, don’t wait around. A change in the color of urine, the presence of blood, a fever, or pain that accompanies urination or occurs in the abdominal region are indicators that something more serious than too much caffeine is the problem. Other symptoms to be on the lookout for include:

  • A stronger than normal need to urinate
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Urinary incontinence
