I'm 34 and for almost 2 months I've been having this slight sensation on and off that I want to pee however it's not consistent or regular i.e. it's not every day. It started when I was waking up every night around 3/4am with that slight sensation. Last week or so I've been sleeping better at night time and don't wake that much although I awake in the morning with that feeling but it never increases in severity.

I'll have some days maybe where I'm totally fine, normal urination, no urge etc. then suddenly the next day I'll have this bout where I'll go a few times in succession, like twice in 2 hours and I do void a fair amount each of those times. During this time my pee is clear, almost white colour but what's bothering me is why this is happening with such irregularity. I haven't changed my diet or fluid intake. No pain or burning or anything physical before or after peeing. Maybe it is what it is but it's not really normal for me. Usually I'll only need to pee about 2-3 times for the entire day. The only other slight and again mild symptom is that I feel an urge straight after showering even though I just peed whilst showering which comes and goes and I do notice when I'm having these bouts I feel very on edge, like anxious maybe, probably because I'm worried about what this is. However, when the normal urine frequency returns, I'm totally fine again and no issues. Again, why I don't think this is anxiety related.

The doctor has no idea about this. I've been to three different doctors. It's not high blood sugar as I checked my bs during one of these bouts and it was normal. It could be the mirtazapine / remeron I'm on (15mg) but this is not a known side effect. It's not an infection or uti as 4 urinalysis have come back negative each time. Doctor not concerned about prostate issues, firstly due to my age and secondly because I'm not having any prostate related symptoms so I'm thinking kidneys? Why am I urinating more than I have drunk some days?

The only thing I could attribute it to is the remeron / mirtazapine but if these are side effects from that then I wasn't getting them when I started it 2 months ago. I've now decided to stop it and it's been about 3 days without it now so will see whether that does cause any changes. Hopefully it shouldn't be too long before it's completely out of my system?
