Have lower back pain & some bladder pain yet I have no UTI symptoms so I'm not sure what could be going on. Any thoughts? Should I see dr or wait?

The lower back pain could also be referred pain from your lumbar spine, a common symptom of a pinched or irritated nerve. You need to see your doctor sooner for an examination as well as a Urine dipstick test to rule out an early urinary tract infection which can develop complications if left untreated. ...Read more

Can a pinched nerve cause harsh lower back pain that runs down the left bum & leg, bladder pain, femoral pain and fever?

Polyradiculopathy: A pinched nerve in the low back can commonly cause back pain as well as pain in the lower extremity ("bum", leg, femur, etc.). If the femoral pain is in the front of the thigh, it is likely multiple nerves are irritated at the same time. "bladder pain" and fever may be due to a separate entity such as a uti. However, spinal cord infection & cauda equina syndrome must be ruled out->an emergency. ...Read more

I have problem with bladder, colon and low back pain. When colon is full I can not urinate, and have back pain. What is the cause of all this?

I have problem with bladder, colon and low back pain. When colon is full I can not urinate, and have back pain. What is the cause of all this?

Constipation: Relationship between the muscles and nerves that control back & bladder functions and those that control bowel movements can cause this. Bladder and the colon are close together in the body. Large amounts of stool in the colon can put pressure on the bladder which can cause the bladder to not fill as much as it should, or cause the bladder to contract when the bladder is not supposed to contract. ...Read more

21-Female Tailbone pain for about 1.5 mths. No injury remembered. X-ray done and spine curvature found. No numbness/bladder problems. Sacral chordoma?

I am experiencing bladder pain, facial swelling and urinary retention. The following also describe me: Lower abdominal pain and Back pain. What shoul?

Time for a doctor: Urinary retention as a new symptom is an emergency. That means a person is making urine, her urine is going into her bladder, but she cannot pee. Thus, her bladder is getting bigger and bigger. Such a patient needs to go to the Emergency Room (unless her primary care doctor is able to correct the problem right away). She may need a temporary catheter inserted via her urethra so that she can pee. ...Read more
