No this is not normal and you should seek attention with a board-certified urologist as this can represent a number of possibilities from BPH to bladder cancer
You need to see a Urologist to evaluate the overactive bladder.
That is completely not normal. Most people in a 24-hour period will urinate a times in that timeframe. You definitely have something wrong and need to be evaluated. Sometimes blood pressure medicine is a diuretic, and if you were taking a diuretic, it will make you urinate more frequently. If you are on such a diuretic for your blood pressure, sometimes they can change it to a different drug so that it doesn’t cause that side effect.

No, it isn’t. There can be many reasons for urinary frequency. To find out more, see my website:
Urinating 20 times a day is not considered normal and you should see a licensed urologist. For more information on potential causes such as BPH or overactive bladder, visit RadRoboticSurgery.com.
This is not normal and you should have a medical evaluation.
Sir, you likely have some enlargement of your prostate as an underlying component and in addition - you can have undiagnosed diabetes or other medical issues - along with an overactive bladder. I highly recommend that you see your primary care physician or your local urologist!
