What Is Nocturia?
Nocturia is a common disorder that causes frequent urination throughout the night, interrupting sleep. Two of the most prominent reasons associated with this condition include age and liquid consumption, but it can also develop as a result of other causes, leading to problematic symptoms. Without proper and timely treatment, nocturia can have a severe impact on overall health and quality of life.
Symptoms of Nocturia
It’s important to note that just because you wake up throughout the night to urinate doesn’t mean you have nocturia. However, if you’re urinating several times each night and concerned about it, call our office immediately. Some other symptoms associated with this disorder to look out for include:
- Chronic fatigue the following day
- Greater volume of urination (known as polyuria)
- Irritability due to lack of sleep
Several of the same signs that occur with sleep apnea will also develop over time due to a lack of rest as well, like moodiness, forgetfulness, frequent headaches, and more.
What Can Cause Nocturia?
Some causes of nocturia, like influx of liquid consumption before bed can be easily addressed. However, if this is not the cause of your frequent urination, you may think about whether any of the following might be causing your symptoms:
- Starting a new medication, like a diuretic
- Urinary tract infections
- Bladder inflammation or spasms
- Bladder obstruction
- Obstructive sleep apnea
Some other concerns or underlying causes related to this condition include:
- Overactive bladder
- Heart disease
- Restless leg syndrome
- High blood pressure
