Sorry for the sufferings.

I need to know some points regarding your query so that I can answer better.

Since when you are having high blood pressure & when the frequent urination developed?

Did you have any tests for it?

Is it more at day or night?

Thank you.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

I have had tests for diabetes and prostate cancer. Both have turned up negative.

I have it both day and night. The frequency varies considerably. It can be up to 8 times a night but is usually at least twice.

During the day, I've had problems where I have to urinate every half hour for about 5 to 6 times before the urge subsides.

I have had high blood pressure for about 20 years.

Thank you for the information,

High blood pressure itself does not cause frequency of urine unless there is any kidney change.

Increased frequency of urine with high blood pressure is often seen as an effect of medicines.

Diuretics or water pill, alpha blockers can be factors.

Other factors for increased frequency can be enlarged prostate(excluded already) , urine infection, diabetes(excluded already), excessive intake of tea,coffee or alcohol , congestive heart failure, obstructive sleep apnea ,psychogenic etc

I hope this information helps.

Happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

Thanks for the information.

My high blood pressure is the result of calcification of my Aorta. It sounds like this could be the cause. Am I correct ?

Your alpha blockers can be factor.
