Urgency: The frequent desire to urinate despite low bladder volumes can come from problems within the bladder, like inflammation and infection, things outside of the bladder like spinal injury, excessive nicotine or caffeine use, or it can be idiopathic, without a clearly identifiable cause. A simple history, physical examination and urinalysis can start your physician down the path towards figuring it out. ...Read more

UTI/Yes: It sounds like you have bacterial cystitis and possibly pyelonephritis. You may be experiencing some post voiding urinary retention. You need a urinalysis, urine culture and bladder/renal ultrasound. You will need to be treated with a 10-14 day course of antibiotics. Get seen by your md. Hope you fell better soon. ...Read more

Bladder Spasms: Lower abdominal / suprapubic pressure and the constant urge to void (urinate) can be caused by involuntary bladder contraction / bladder spasms. Bladder spasms in a young person, without uti, other medical issues, or back injury would likely be associated with cystitis / inflammation of the lining of the bladder. A referral to a urologist would likely result in the resolution of these symptoms. ...Read more

My stomach is getting bigger I always feel like I'm full I feel nauseated and I have a history ovarian cyst could something be seriously wrong?

My question is are you lactose intolerance, constipated, is there weight loss? Does cancer run in your family? If these are potential yes answers see your general practitioner. If you were in my office I would order a CT abdomen to further evaluate. ...Read more
