I'm seeing a urogynecologist on Thursday, but just wanted to check in here.

Could excessive urination (we're talking around 20 times a day) be somehow related to Crohn's or Humira?

I do not have UTI, as I've been tested multiple times since this symptom has arisen. There is no pain other than some pelvic discomfort. No other known symptoms...it's been gradually building over several months, but gotten bad the past month.
20 y/o, diagnosed 6/2007. On Humira, no wheat or corn syrup, low sugar, low dairy.

Well, seeing as how I am a crohnie on humira who is having frequent problems with urination: very likely?
That's my eight ball answer anyway.

Let us know what the results are in any case. I'm curious to know.

I'm not on any oral RX for my CD and I've noticed I pee tons for the last couple of yrs compared to the first 15ish yrs of having this DD, I'm in my 40's so I just chalked it up to it being a combination of that and pooping so many times over the last 18 yrs with CD messed up my pee-er too.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

I've noticed I pee more when I am in a flare or have a lot of inflammation in my abdomen. I think it puts pressure on my bladder, and I can't hold as much? Annoying, that's for sure!
