HattieMaeMay 22nd, 2016 3:39amThe physical feelings of anxiety are caused by the “fight , flight, or freeze” part of the brain firing off prematurely. During this time your body prepares itself, as if it had to run away from a threat (like a safer tooth tiger) thanks to our evolutionary history. Your heart beats faster to get more blood to your vessels, your breathe faster and your digestion slows down to direct that extra energy towards your muscles. When your digestion slows down, and gets altered frequently due to anxiety attacks IBS (or irritable bowel syndrome) can develop where you need to use the bathroom frequently. For me, I get lots of bloating and stomach pains if my anxiety attacks occur frequently enough. But I recommend seeing a doctor about it, if it is causing you too many problems. 16

The good news for the small bladdered is that you can train your bladder to hold more fluid. “When it’s full, it can stretch,” Greenleaf says. In tests of bladder capacity, teachers and nurses—people with limited time to take themselves to the toilet, for obvious reasons—consistently rank the highest, she says. “Some people have this idea that it’s not good to hold urine in, so when they get the urge they run to the bathroom,” Greenleaf says. “That’s the opposite of stretching. If you give into the urges too often, you are training the bladder not to hold as much.” (Just don’t hold it so long that it starts to hurt.) You could be inadvertently doing this if you’ve preemptively started emptying your bladder more frequently in just-in-case scenarios, like in hopes of warding off leakage, say, before a workout, Bavendam says. “A change in your habits to try to prevent leakage can contribute to this cycle of going more and more often, and then you feel like you need to go frequently.”

Most bladders hold about 2 cups of fluid. If you’re going to the bathroom frequently and producing less than that, that’s probably not normal, says Tamara Bavendam, MD, program director of the Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. And yes, you should actually measure. Grab a container and see if you’re hitting 1.5 to 2 cups, she says. (Just maybe wait until you’re home alone to do that science experiment.)

You could have diabetes. gettyimages-491207800-diabetes-dolgachov.jpg dolgachov/getty images If you’ve ruled out other causes, there’s a chance your constant peeing is due to diabetes. If your blood sugar’s high, the kidneys won’t be able to process all of it, and some can spill into the urine. That sugar will essentially pull more water out of you, Bavendam says, so you’ll be generating more pee. Even eating food or candy with a lot of sugar is enough to make you go more frequently. “You could go to the bathroom every hour and still see 2 cups every time,” she says. “That’s not a bladder problem, it’s a problem with the amount of urine you’re producing.” (The good news? Diabetes doesn’t have to be your fate; Rodale’s new book, The Natural Way To Beat Diabetes, shows you exactly what to eat and do to prevent the disease—and even reverse it).

Gotta go all the time? The technical name for your problem is frequent urination. In most people the bladder is able to store urine until it is convenient to go to the toilet, typically four to eight times a day. Needing to go more than eight times a day or waking up in the night to go to the bathroom could mean you’re drinking too much and/or too close to bedtime. Or it could signal a health problem. Causes of Frequent Urination Frequent urination can be a symptom of many different problems from kidney disease to simply drinking too much fluid. When frequent urination is accompanied by fever, an urgent need to urinate, and pain or discomfort in the abdomen, you may have a urinary tract infection. Other possible causes of frequent urination include: Diabetes . Frequent urination with an abnormally large amount of urine is often an early symptom of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes as the body tries to rid itself of unused glucose through the urine. Pregnancy . From the early weeks of pregnancy the growing uterus places pressure on the bladder, causing frequent urination. Prostate problems . An enlarged prostate can press against the urethra (the tube that carries urine out the body) and block the flow of urine. This causes the bladder wall to become irritable. The bladder begins to contract even when it contains small amounts of urine, causing more frequent urination. Interstitial cystitis . This condition of unknown cause is characterized by pain in the bladder and pelvic region. Often, symptoms include an urgent and/or frequent need to urinate. Diuretic use. These medications that are used to treat high blood pressure or fluid buildup work in the kidney and flush excess fluid from the body, causing frequent urination. Stroke or other neurological diseases. Damage to nerves that supply the bladder can lead to problems with bladder function, including frequent and sudden urges to urinate. Less common causes include bladder cancer, bladder dysfunction, and radiation therapy. Often, frequent urination is not a symptom of a problem, but is the problem. In people with overactive bladder syndrome, involuntary bladder contractions lead to frequent and often urgent urination, meaning you have to get to a bathroom right now — even if your bladder is not full. It may also lead you to wake up once or more during the night to use the bathroom.

BhEARdSeptember 1st, 2016 4:33amFrom my own experience, anxious feelings create the need to go to the toilet frequently because all of my bodily processes seem to be accelerated. The body is working harder to regulate itself. I’ve also had a more difficult or delayed time in going to the washroom if I’m anxious. 0

Anxiety is a form of excitement, though usually related with stress. It causes the system to constantly stay in “flight or fight” response causing immense strain on the normal functioning of the body. Due to this sympathetic and parasympathetic hormones are released which increase one’s urge to go to the toilet. Also it causes the adrenal glands to function at high rates and thus as adrenaline increases under stress, it has to be removed from the system as well, hence the urge to go to toilet frequently. Hope it helped 🙂

Have you ever seen a dog, especially an indoor dog get anxious when someone comes to their house and they pee right on the carpet even though they’re potty trained? Its kind of like that. Your nervous system is linked to all parts of your body even the bladder. When my parents separated, I didn’t know I was having a rough time with it until I had to go to the doctor because I thought I was diabetic. I was peeing nearly ever half hour when I went to visit my mother. At home with my father and grandmother I had no problems. I linked it to soley when I went to my mother’s and I had to go see a counselor. She told me that when you have anxieties and fear it can make a person have to pee a lot and frequently. I had to start doing things to help relieve my anxieties before I was able to get back to a normal urinating schedule over there. It didn’t matter for long, my folks got back together and I didn’t have that worry. But this is a pesky problem that can also develop in your bowels. If you are having trouble, or are concerned see a therapist or a doctor or talk to someone you trust about it. Even talking can make a person feel better. Don’t be shamed over this. Its a normal occurrence.
