    Having a rough time: worried I have a kidney issue

    Hey,

    Having a bit of a spiral. Been having a lot of frequent urination as of late. Hoping itís just a part of my Generalized anxiety disorder. But Iím going like 10-15 times a day which seems excessive. I pretty much never wake up during the night to pee though

    Stressing that this is an indication of some sort of kidney issue. I donít have any swelling or anything like that. Here comes the TMI portion, just a warning. I do have a little bit of bubbly urine. When I stand up, itís pretty bubbly and sticks around for a few minutes before dissipating. When I sit down and try to cancel out the distance, there are no bubbles.

    So, I guess Iím asking, does anyone else pee this much? Iím currently on a diet and have been working out and losing weight every day, Iím hoping the excess pee is from fat burning or something. Logically, I know that if I had a serious kidney issue Iíd likely have some other symptoms but I just canít shake the idea that itís something with my kidneys.

    When my anxiety is high I definitely pee more (I also poo more). Then when my anxiety becomes more manageable it eases off again.

    My brother is having problems of the urinary kind and he's peeing frequently throughout the day and night. If you're not waking up needing to wee, my guess is anxiety..

    Re bubbly wee... I recently made the connection with my urine suddenly becoming bubbly to using a new toilet deodoriser which sticks to the side of the loo (logic) but I also noticed (before new deodoriser) that husband and son's wee is occasionally bubbly (with no other symptoms) and apparently it's common. Before you ask how I know - neither of them flush.

    Hahah, the ol' "if it's yellow, let it mellow" mantra. Thanks again for your response.
    I know that it sounds pretty irrational the more I think about it. I'd imagine that if it was actually a problem with my kidneys, then I would probably be up all night every night. Especially with no other symptoms (other than a rash, but I've had rashes my whole life haha)
