She wants a drink all through the night

My daughter and I are still in 1 bed due to unforseen circustances and she is asking me all through the night say 4 or 5 times for a drink and goes mad if she doesnt have one. I give it to her thinking that she might be dehighdrated but then when I do say no she screams at me. What can I do and I am potty training I am worried she will wet through the night because she wants a drink all the time.

I think keeping a sippy cup of water next to the bed would work. But explain to her before you do this that she is only getting one cup of water in the night so not to drink it all at once. It will be important for her to know the rules ahead of time. This allows her water and not too much.

I would keep a water bottle or sippy cup of water by the bed. That way you can teach her to reach for the drink herself without asking.

I agree on keeping the sippy cup of water by the bed. It takes a long, long time to night potty train, so denying her water in the short term probably will only result in no one getting any sleep.
