I have days when I pee every 15 or 20 minutes and my bladder is full each and every time. I can drink 3 glasses of water all day and pee out gallons that night. Just recently that happened. Kept me up until 1am.
Don't know what causes this. One theory is maybe my body is trying to get rid of an overload of toxins. Another theory, it is just LD reaking havoc on my body.

Keebler's "Lectin Lock" link was especially interesting. Cranberry juice does not agree with the daughter - acid reflux developes. She has no pain, burning or blood in urine.
Lymetoo suggested Interstitial Cystitis. I had ruled this out because she has no pain. However one of her links says early symptoms are frequency and urgency. So maybe this is early symptoms? I will discuss this with her LLMD next week. She has an appt. with urologist (sp) in a few weeks. Interesting too, it says symptoms wax and wane - which is her case.
Top irritating items for the IC bladder are helpful and I copied this for my daughter. Fruit juice and multivitamins are on the list. Vit C and B6 especially.
Ultimately, it seems the common thread is Lyme. One symptom linked to another to host a whole series of problems whether inflammation or hormone imbalance results - what is the CAUSE?
It would be really great if we could find a "natural" way to deal with this.
