Urinating concern
Hi Doc
I am just wondering why I need to get up and go to the loo almost 3 - 4 times a night for the past month, whereas before I never used to go at all, only the next morning. Is this normal? I am 26 and female. I must say since this started I have been feeling very bloated and sometimes my tummy feels fragile, like in just before one starts menstruation. I thought I might have bladder infection? Could this be it? I do tend to keep in my wee's. Please help.

Dear Linz
You may well have a bladder infection - you should ask your doctor to test the urine and also check for diabetes please?
