Causes Of Tingling In The Bladder
I get sharp pains in bladder/ureter when I have shortness of breath/mental confusion/tingling of skin? Can kidney/ureter/bladder stones cause this?
Something is Wrong: This question sounds like two or three different questions. It does not come together to one specific or obvious problem. But, the symptoms are not to be ignored and I would recommend a full evaluation in person with your trusted medical advisor. ...Read more
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
Pain in back that goes down to my butt. It's a tingling pain that keeps getting worse. Can't stand straight when happens. Loss of bladder. What is it?
GO TO THE DOCTOR: There are many causes of back pain. But what I am concerned about is that you have loss of bladder function. This is very concerning in the setting of back pain for compression of the very bottom part of the spine called the cauda equina. It is potentially a serious condition and is the first thing that I would want to rule out. ...Read more

Sounds serious...: When a person loses control of the bladder, but was fine before... that's a problem. When combined with neurological symptoms in the legs or lower back, it becomes an emergency. In such a situation, one should get an immediate evaluation to see if there is something pressing on the spinal cord, which could lead to permanent paralysis. The Emergency Room doctor can ask the Neurologist to help. ...Read more
Muscle or nerve...: Problems. The bladder's purpose is to store urine then empty fully. If the muscle is unable to accommodate urine or squeeze to expel it, it will function poorly. The muscles are controlled by nerves, which deliver the sense of filling, then coordinate muscle contraction. Ms, spinal cord injuries, diabetes, bladder thickening, obstruction, scarring, interstitial cystitis, can affect these systems. ...Read more
Cystitis, obstruction: Inflammation or utis cause bladder thickening. Bladder outflow obstruction, e.g. Tight, non relaxing bladder neck, prostate enlargement, urethral vaves or a urethral stricture causes all cause bladder trabeculation (enlargement of bladder muscle fibers). Also neurogenic bladder, detrussor-sphincter dyssynergia (sphincter conractswith voiding) but should relax & bladder reflux all cause thickening. ...Read more
See below.: Generally, for women, bacteria from feces (particularly e. Coli) gets in contact with the urethral opening. The bacteria are then able to enter the urethra and travel the relatively short distance (compared with men) to the bladder where it can cause infection - a uti. One of the best prevention strategies besides daily hygiene is to wipe front to back, not vice versa. ...Read more
Many: Oab can be urgency / frequency (uf) or full blown urge incontinence (uui). Ufcauses: dietary, inflammation, infection (vaginal or bladder), hypertonic pelvic muscles. Urge incontinence: weak urethra, spasm or unwanted contraction of bladder muscle. Reasons for bladder "spasm" include neurologic (stroke, spinal cord injury, ms) or idiopathic (essentially unknown). ...Read more
? Congenital? Acquired: May have been born with small bladder. Bladder can contract after birth from recurrent utis, bladder contracting from outflow obstruction; voiding dysfunction; interstitial cystitis; spinal cord injury, abnormality, or neurologic problem. Best evaluated by urologist or uro-gynecologist. ...Read more
Many causes: Oab can be due to bladder irritants like caffeine, tomatoes, or alcohol, but it can also be due to infections, stones, cancer, or neurologic diseases. Be sure to see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis. Oab can be significantly improved by using a bladder diary, avoiding irritants, not over-drinking, and using "bladder retraining" with timed voiding. Medicines are available if needed. ...Read more
Nerve issues: A "diabetic bladder" is a non-specific term related to a bladder than may have problems with the nerves that innervate it ("neurogenic bladder"). Diabetes can affect the nerves (diabetic neuropathy) not only in the feet and hands, etc, but also the bladder for instance, causing issues with frequency (overactive, incontinence, etc. That being said, you may have nerve issues-see the urologist 4 eval. ...Read more
Various things: Leakage of urine can occur due to bladder infections, prolapse (loss of support for the vagina and bladder caused by damage to the supporting tissues of the pelvis), and malfunctioning nerves which control the bladder. There are other less common causes, including trauma, surgical injury, cancer, but these usually will be associated with other symptoms. An exam and physician evaluation is needed. ...Read more

Bladder spasm: Horse. This is an interesting question. There is a school of thought that the bladder, like the bowels, has a sensitivity to certain elements of the diet. (interstitial cystitis behaves much like inflammatory bowel disease). You are in charge here. Keep a diary of you bladder symptoms (on paper) and note what worsens your symptoms. Pay attention to artificial sweeteners. Good luck! ...Read more
Anatomy: I am not a urologist, but intuition tells me that the cause of low capacity bladder is due to anatomical variation. HOWEVER, if the problem is recent, then I ask what is causing the sudden frequent urination and low capacity? Is it a space occupying lesion? I would suggest continued follow-up with a urologist for testing: ultrasound, cystoscopy, etc. ...Read more
