2. Frequent Urination

In many cases, urinating too often is a sign of a bladder or urinary tract infection, but it can also point to a more chronic disorder. Everybody has different bathroom habits, and what you eat and drink can greatly affect the amount you need to urinate. However, frequent urination – that is, going more than 8 times in one day – can signal a problem with your bladder or kidneys, and calls for a trip to the doctor. Frequent urination is often one of the first symptoms of urge incontinence, and so you may find the need to go starts to come on more suddenly, too.
