Feels like I have to pee really bad but it takes me forever to pee?

Try simple solutions: Depending on your age, exam, and other symptoms, you may have an enlarged prostate and/or overactive bladder. There are medications for either, but start by making sure coffee, chocolate, spicy foods, citrus drinks aren't causing the symptoms and curtail your drinking fluids before bedtime. ...Read more

I'm having really bad chest pains nd pains under my rib cage it also takes me like 5 minutes to pee after I start trying to and it takes me everything?

I'm having really bad chest pains nd pains under my rib cage it also takes me like 5 minutes to pee after I start trying to and it takes me everything?

Need to see your GP: As the pain under the ribs, might be of kidney origin. Tie-ing that with difficulty in urinating maybe an infective cause. Are you having any blood in it, or has the color changed? Any odor to it? Any burning sensation with it?

I cannot tie in the chest pain to it. Maybe when the doc who sees you will be able to have a better idea.
Unless its a chest infection and with possibly with dehydration. ...Read more

5m pregnant, feels like bladder is blocked when full takes 5min to start to pee, bad groin, and bladder pain, not a badder infection had that test don?

Pressure from uterus: Pressure on the bladder from the uterus can cause these sort of urinary problems, especially farther along in pregnancy. Generally, however, this improves by around 12-14 weeks gestation. Since you're past that point, you should have your doctor evaluate you for other bladder problems. ...Read more

I cut myself shaving inside my vagina and it burns and stings really bad when I pee. How long does it take to heal? And what can I do for the burning?

I cut myself shaving inside my vagina and it burns and stings really bad when I pee. How long does it take to heal? And what can I do for the burning?

Heals fast.: It is very difficult to injure vagina while shaving. However the mucosa on the outside area or the skin next to it can be injured. Mucosa heals in 3 - 4 days and skin 7 - 10 days. Application of neospiorin will help ease off burning by covering raw area and reduce chance of infection. Liquid benadryl (diphenhydramine) application also has been proven to reduce burning. ...Read more

See answer: Your urinary symptoms are consistent with a UTI and if so, should resolve within 3-5 days of taking the appropriate antibiotic. If symptoms persist, I would recommend both a urinalysis and culture to verify the diagnosis and direct treatment. If your weight gain has occurred over a short time frame and there has been no marked increase on your dietary intake, then likely due to fluid retention. ...Read more

47 yo f.having pain in my tummy an lower back. Peeing a lot. My tummy hurts real bad in the morning before I pee an it takes a while to come out.

Urinary symptoms: You may have cystitis or inflammation of the bladder. It may be related to a urinary tract infection. I recommend having a test to rule out an infection which would require antibiotics. In the meantime, be sure to drink 6-8 glasses of water daily. Cranberry juice may be helpful as well. ...Read more

Worrisome: Your history of severe back pain and cloudy urine is very worrisome. Possibilities include kidney stones, pyelonephritis, interstitial nephritis. The large doses of Ibuprofen you are taking can also be quite dangerous to be kidney possibly papillary necrosis. I would suggest evaluation by kidney specialist at soon as possible. ...Read more

Repeat culture.: Sounds like you have already seen urologist and that you have a recurrent rather than relapsing uti. If I were your physician I would obtain culture before treating. In absence of any other contraindication I would use Nitrofurantoin 100 mg PO bid. ...Read more

Are there any OTC meds I can take that will stop the smell of bad urine? Maybe cleanse?

Multiple causes...: Urine should generally not have a bad smell. There are somethings that can alter the smell of urine such as B vitamins and certain vegetables, this is usually not troublesome. If your urine is dark it may be more pungent and this could indicate dehydration, you should drink more throughout the day. If it is cloudy or painful then this could indicate infection, you need to see a doctor. ...Read more

I rarely take vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). I know it's bad even if I'm not prescribed. However I just took one. Should it be totally out of my urine in 48 hours or less?

I rarely take vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). I know it's bad even if I'm not prescribed. However I just took one. Should it be totally out of my urine in 48 hours or less?

Yes: Drink plenty of water. The elimination half-life of lisdexamfetamine typically averaged less than 1 hour, even the amount unconverted to active form is negligible in at most 8 hours. Having said so, it is important, you see your doctor for proper evaluation, diagnosis and care. Taking vyvanse as you indicated tells there may be a problem you need to address. Please talk to your physician. Stay safe. ...Read more

I'm fighting with addiction but I have been clean but my life's really bad right now I'm having trouble dealing with it so I had a dumb moment and took some Percocets and I have to take a urine test Friday so how can flush my system out plz help?

I'm fighting with addiction but I have been clean but my life's really bad right now I'm having trouble dealing with it so I had a dumb moment and took some Percocets and I have to take a urine test Friday so how can flush my system out plz help?

No way to flush: Unfortunately, while the dose itself may be out of your system by Friday metabolites may not be and there's no way to accelerate that process. The other thing I'd like to mention is that your question on a DOCTORS' forum is not where you should expect someone to give you the answer to "how to beat the system." Those types of boards are elsewhere. Help to avoid taking them again? Yes, here ...Read more

Get urine culture: Bacteria in the urine can come from the skin. It is best to get a culture and identify the bacteria. That is good to tell whether it is from skin or the urinary tract. That also tells the doctor which antibiotic would work best. On your own you can take cranberry extract or pyridium (phenazopyridine). ...Read more

I drink a lot of water and don't take any vitamins, but my urine is neon yellow. I recently had a bad kidney infection, could that be related to it?

Neon urine: A kidney infection could have caused an injury to your kidneys' ability to filter urine. Dark urine also occurs in liver diseases/infections and dehydration. If you feel that you are drinking enough water, please see a md to check on other causes. ...Read more

Confused: Not certain what you ask. Generally Keflex is effective for otitis. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may also help. Probiotics will help to repopulate your gut with good bacteria that have been destroyed by the antibiotics. That may help the stomach burning. ...Read more

Feels like I have to pee real bad but can't go, only slowly drips out. No pain except for bladder feeling full but can't relieve it.

Urinary issue: You need to have urine test, ivp and possible cystoscopy done by a urologist to check for anything blocking the urine flow inside the bladder. If this is going on only for around 2 to 3 days and able to urinate good amounts after not urinating for a while, then it could be even simple infection. ...Read more

How can I tell if I empty my bladder. I have to pee really bad but when I try I have to strain real hard?

UTI/stricture: If you are having pain while urinating than you probably have cystitis (lower uti), rx is antibiotic ; water.
If you only have harder time in urinating (not painful) but the flow is slower and weaker then there might be narrowing of the urethra.
