I had similar problems and found I was a mouth breather at night. This caused dry mouth and thirst. The cycle went like this wake up due to dry mouth go drink water go to sleep hour later wake up due to dry mouth and had to pee, get up drink water and pee. Every hour all night long not a good sleep so fatigue and blood pressure problems. Also check how much salt you are eating if you eat out often...
