Dear Dr. K, I’m getting up two to three times a night to pee and the loss of sleep is killing me. What can I do?
Nightly trips to the bathroom to urinate are one of the symptoms of an enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Other symptoms include:
Frequent or urgent need to urinate
Needing to get up a night to urinate-nocturia
Urinary hesitancy-you need to stand there for a while before things start to flow
