I peed over a gallon last night

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

I peed over a gallon last night

Post by THX1138 » Sat Dec 15, 2018 9:58 am

I am chronically dehydrated and last night I peed about 1 gallon in 8 hours. Over night I drank about 40 oz of water mix (see below). I also had done a magnesium treatment before bed and this had made my muscles significantly less stiff and the muscle spasms much milder. But it only lasted for about 4 hours. Each time I got up to pee during the 4 hours, I noticed the stiffness and muscle spasms were progressively worse. After 4 hours the stiffness and muscle spasms were back to normal (bad).

I normally pee roughly half a gallon and drink about 40 oz water overnight.

During the day I drink about a gallon of water mixed with 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan crystal salt, 750 mg of potassium citrate, 1 tsp Natural Calm, and 1 cap of Remyte.

I have to drink water overnight otherwise my muscle spasms are much much worse and I might not even be able to get out of bed in the morning (It has happened).

I don't drink alcohol and I don't drink caffeine and I don't exercise to speak of and I don't have a hot environment and I don't take diuretic drugs.

I do take about 1 gram of fish oil per day.

Thanks :-D

And how much do you drink during the day? The more you drink, the more you will have to urinate, this is normal.

"I am chronically dehydrated"

Are you really chronically dehydrated or always thirsty? There is a big difference!

Signs of severe dehydration include:

Not peeing or having very dark yellow pee.
Very dry skin.
Feeling dizzy.
Rapid heartbeat.
Rapid breathing.
Sunken eyes.
Sleepiness, lack of energy, confusion or irritability.
Fainting.

According to Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic, the average bladder can hold between 10 and 15 ounces when at maximum capacity. If you're drinking enough water for your body and peeing around six to seven times in 24 hours (or around every 2.5 hours), all is likely well. You are obviously exceeding that but ultimately the amount you are drinking comes into play.

According to Dr. Google, it is perfectly normal to pass urine frequently when we drink a lot of water. ... When there is excess water in the body, the brain usually produces less of a hormone called anti diuretic, which in turn causes the kidneys to produce a lot of dilute urine, until this excess water is removed.

1 gallon

Rarely do I feel thirsty.
My saliva is often viscous, however.


Signs of severe dehydration include:

Not peeing or having very dark yellow pee. --- Not unless I drink less, like 3 quarts a day\night when my pee gets dark yellow. But I usually pee roughly every 2 even at night.
Very dry skin. --- No Dry eyes, though.
Feeling dizzy. --- Yes
Rapid heartbeat. --- HB gets faster from eating. Still not that fast though - probably 80 BPM tops.
Rapid breathing. --- No
Sunken eyes. --- Not that I'm aware of
Sleepiness, lack of energy, confusion or irritability. --- Very much, so for all
Fainting. --- No

All my symptoms get worse unless I drink a lot throughout the day and night.

A nutritionally oriented MD gave me some test that said that I am chronically dehydrated.

My pulsatile tinnitus is louder when I drink less. The pulsatile tinnitus largely goes away on the left side of my head when I'm more dehydrated. Upon drinking a pint or more water, I start hearing the tinnitus similarly on both sides of my head.
According to Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic, the average bladder can hold between 10 and 15 ounces when at maximum capacity.
Only 10-15 oz - I don't think so.

Thanks
