I can't stop peeing in the middle of the night and its preventing my girlfriend from sleeping well. Is this normal? How do I stop this?

For the record, I'm turning 25 later this month. I've been to my doctor about it who said nothing was wrong with me and that I just need to make sure I don't eat/drink anything several hours before I go to sleep.
I've tried this and I still can't stop getting up to pee in the middle of the night! Sometimes its more than once...like once at 4am or so and again at 6am.
My girlfriend is very understanding but at the same time its causing her to not get a full nights sleep and this has been taking its toll on her so I want to figure out how to put an end to this.
When I wake up with the urge to pee, its not like if I don't go I'll wet the bed, however it is uncomfortable enough that I can't continue sleeping. This only started happening after college when the real stresses of the world fell upon my shoulders so I've considered it being job stress, however I was recently let go from an extremely stressful job and it continued despite me not having much stress about being unemployed due to knowledge that my family would support me should my funds run out.
