    Are polyuria, nocturia and polydipsia acknowledged symptoms of ME please?

    Many PWME whom I ask have them. How about an easy online research project where PWME are asked to keep accurate fluid balance charts for 2 weeks or more? Thismay throw some light on it - it may be a cause of or result of POTS - we do not know. FOr me IM B 12 injections improve for a week or 2 - ie the polyuria stops - then returns after the injection wears off...or so it has seemed tme foe quite some time. IM B 12 is something that helps a lot of people with ME - maybe this is why..aparantly it is used to build connective tissue and also boosts blood volume.

    THanks

    It didn't have any effect for me until I worked my way up to 600mg oral + about 600 topical. But maybe I just got lucky!

    I seem to urinate far too much in the winter even though I usually don't drink any water or anything other liguid. Sometimes I feel dehydrated in the winter and I try to drink some water, but it seems as though it doesn't help any and that I just urinate it away. I don't know if I urinate too much in the summer because I do believe I drink lots of water during that time period and maybe it is proportional to what I urinate. I have also noticed that when I feel dehydrated in the summer it also often seems as though it doesn't help me either. When I feel dehydrated I really don't feel that I am thirsty. I wonder why I often times don't feel thirsty when I feel dehydrated? Do you think B12 injections might help? Does it have to be injections? I have taken B12 injections in the past, but I never noticed any improvements in symptoms. But I don't know if it helped with excessive urination or if I even had excessive urination back then when I was on the B12 injections. I wonder if vasopressin would help me? Do you think I should try it?

    it has to be B 12 injectios for me and they definitely help me Tyson - maybe keep a fluid balance chart before and after to see how much and how often you are pee....good luck

    Yeah, I think that's the reason people use the topical stuff.
