For the past couple of years I've been having issues with urinating 8-7 times every 2 hours and nocturnal Eurasia. I have extreme photophobia and thoughts of fatigue. I have had docs in the past notice irregularities with my kidney function according to bloodwork. I am on disability for CPTSD issues. I am a 40 year old Male. Is this all connected?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I would suggest you to have fasting blood sugar and water deprivation tests. If these tests were normal then take amitriptyline to combat this problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
