ask: Left hip pain at night and needing to pee every 2-3 hours

By Cellie

First of all.. I am not pregrant. So that can be ruled out. This has been going on for about 2 months now and I am so tired of not being able to sleep without pain or waking up. I have been to my doctor and she has already done a urine test for infection but came back negative.
I am fine once I get up and move around all day ( no pain or discomfort) once i go to bed I usually wake up every 2-3 hours needing to pee as i get a lot of pressure. during that time i can barely move to get out of bed because my left lower hip area is so sore.

Is there something else I should be asking my doctor to look at?? or do?? I am so desperate for a good night sleep without having to wake up to pee or move without pain

Hi Cellie,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Have you had any imaging test done like an ultrasound.

Many things can cause frequent urination

  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Medicines such as diuretics
  • Overactive bladder syndrome
  • Prostatitis (infection of the prostate gland)
  • Stroke and other brain or nervous system diseases
  • Tumor or mass in the pelvis
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginitis
  • You might want to suggest that to your doctor or get a second opinion from another doctor, especially an OBGYN.

    Here is a link that will help
