After advice, last 5 years I been suffering, anything I drink is making me go a wee, Just returned from holiday, and after just a few beers I’m going to the toilet every 5-10 mins, I try holding it as long as possible, but can’t, it’s not just beer, is any drinks, tea coffee water, fizzy, the only thing that’s ok is lattes, if I make my own I’m fine, so milk is fine, I had about 7 beers on holiday one night, and I was constantly going regular ever 10 mins max, and then once gone to bed was getting up about 5 times in the night to go, it’s getting beyond a joke, I avoid drinking anything if I’m going shopping unless it’s a latte, and avoid social evens as I’m forever needing to pee.
Once I go once, then it’s ever 10 mins unless I don’t drink anything and then I get headaches.
Is there any medication for this as is driving me mad.
Thank you so much and hope to hear from anyone who has this and controls it.

Hello ttwir63
Welcome to our Forum, but sorry you are experiencing problems,

Have you discussed your incontinence with your Doc? 

If you read through this Forum,( there is a specific Mens Forum that may assist), you will realise we are all different with so many different scenarios, and what will help one person will be a total ,No No, for someone else , this makes finding an answer so difficult.

To answer your query, Yes,there are a few medications that will assist in trying to re educate the bladder, but you do need to speak with your Doc,
also our advice line may offer some suggestions , and we do have an incontinence Nurse on the phone line on a Wednesday each week.

Personally, my understanding of Beer is that whilst the Hops may have some anti inflammatory content, the Sugar will be very high and this may irritate the Bladder,

another thought, for visiting your Doc,, would be to get your Prostate checked as this could be putting pressure on the bladder.

Kind regards
Kate

Thank you Kate for getting back, I’ve not had any inconvenience problems yet, just busting to go, and when I do go it’s very slow rate it comes out, I’ve been 7 times in last 6 hours and only had to coffees today. Ive booked to see doctor on 1st Nov, milk seems to be the only fluid that don’t effect me. I have RA, osteoporosis, and fibromyalgia along with Depression, and this is driving me mad, on our holiday I ended up only drinking a couple a night and felt people talking as we going to toilet so much, had a nice romantic meal one night and went 3 times while there, so embarrassing.

Oh dear bless you, no wonder you are depressed.

Please do join BHUK they will have lots of leaflets and information to assist you, that we cannot cover here on the Forum.

Also read this from our Website, you will see we have a nutritionist, that may help

Also re the incontinence, as you say it is no fun having to keep getting up, when you are out, maybe I know not answer, BUT you could get some Male incontinent pants, to wear on special evenings out, they would at least give you some confidence , especially if you test them out at home first.

Do ring the Office on Monday and also the Nurse on WEDNESDAY.

EDIT also loads of advice again here from Moderator Susan

Hi ttwlr63.
My husband has an enlarged prostate. (83). Coffee is a no no!!! Smoking is a no no!!
I read that you are drinking coffee. Try to ELIMINATE it if possible! Smoking too. 
My other half has regular check ups. Had 1 op on prostate about 9 years ago and for his age is doing extremely well.
Have your PSA level checked. Shows in a blood test.
Keep posting and good luck. It will all be fine eventually, trust me.x

Hi,
I don’t smoke, I’ve been doing test at home, had watter only and I’m still peeing the same amount, I got docs on Wednesday so I’ll take my notes with me, I’ve notice I can’t push it out faster, it mainly very slow flow and I have to lean in to stop it going over my leg. Most volume I get it 80ml lowest 15ml.

Hi ttwri63

Doh!! Personally would think its is PSA, which is what you need, so be sure to ask whoever does your Bloods that they are doing that for you.Or even ring surgery and ask that they will be doing PSA, then you will be reassured.

Have you spoken with BHUK, am sure they will advise you.


Do keep posting

Hi there.

It's PSA. Prostate Specific Antigen.  Sounds like you could have a prostate problem if flow is slow. Men would normally start having probs with their prostate in their late 50s/60s. Subjective of course.

It can be sorted. Once you have your PSA results your doctor will know what steps to take to treat you. There is a pill which one takes in the morning to help shrink the prostate if in fact you have an enlarged prostate. 

My husband has a "flow test" next week to check how much urine he's able to "get out"! A non invasive test. You have to pee when asked by the nurse who is on the other side of a cubicle. This is timed. If memory does not fail me it is also checked for the amount you are able to pee.

Do keep your chin up. It will get better.

Keep posting and let us know how you get on.

Hugs.
