What is a lazy bladder?

Neurogenic bladder: "lazy bladder" is just a simple way to explain "neurogenic bladder". When the muscle of the bladder does not contract the way it should it will retain urine. Common in paralyzed patients or in peripheral neuropathies, diseases of the lower spine, neurological disorders, after stroke etc.

Discipline: It is human nature to feel lazy. But it sounds like you want to focus and do well in school. In order to do that, you need some discipline and time management skills. But it does not have to be so painful. First, sit down and write down all of your priorities, including how much time you want or need to spend on your studies. Then, figure out how much time you need to chill out and have fun.

Many: There are so many causes for this. See your doctor to get blood tests ruling out easy stuffs like thyroid problems, anemia, sugar problems, electrolytes/liver/kidney functions. If you are overweight, you need to lose weight with proper diet/exercise regimen. Ostructive sleep apnea is very common and is underdiagnosed. Your doctor can see if you are at risk and order you a sleep study...

Why would you call: Yourself lazy? Any number of things can cause us to feel sluggish, starting with thyroid problems and sleep disorders. These things can also make us feel depressed! make an appointment with your family doc and get checked out! she can then refer you to a psychiatrist if need be.

Depression?: Good question why are you doing it? Do you have an underlying disease that contributes to inactivity? Your initial symptoms sound to be depression and i certainly would speak with a physician before things get worse for you. I dont know you but find a purpose to get going and start exercising with the first goal to not getting fat since that will just lead to more problems. Good luck.
