How many times a night is to many to go to the restroom? (Taking a wizz) For about a week now maybe two I end up getting up 5-7 times a day (sleep days, work nights)...Nothing new has changed in my eating/drinking habits.....Just wondering....

Depends. (No pun intended)
What's your age?
Men over 50 can develop BPH, enlargement of the prostate, which leads to urinary frequency.
If you're younger, you need to be checked for diabetes.
Less commonly, urinary tract infections or another entity called diabetes insipidus can lead to frequency.

Uhh, that's too many.

No changes in your pre bedtime habits? How old are you? No recent changes in your diet or patterns?

Try not drinking liquids too close to bedtime. Take a leak just before going to bed.

I usually go all night without having to get up to urinate. So normal for me is zero. What is normal for you?

ETA I'm way too slow a typist.

If it's diabetes, you need to know sooner rather than later. A check-up at a Family Doctor won't break the bank and can help to avoid long-term complications. Don't blow this off in the name of being cheap.

I'm not aware of certain lines of work resulting in nocturia/frequency.

See a doctor.
