Is there a connection between severe lower back pain and weak urine stream?

Is there a connection between severe lower back pain and weak urine stream?

Yes: If you are taking pain medications that are narcotic, muscle relaxers, or other meds that have the potential to make you sleepy, then yes. If you had severe spinal cord/nerve compression, you likely would not be able to void voluntarily. There would be saddle numbness and likely pain into legs as well if related. So I am doubtful that you have cauda equina syndrome with only the 2 symptoms listed. ...Read more

Urine bubbles in toilet, mild lower back pain, slightly cloudy urine...am I okay till Saturday doc or am I emergency?? Scared..

Not an emergency.: There are multiple etiologies to "bubbles in the toilet", the first thing that comes to mind is protein in your urine. This is not an emergency, but it does need to be worked up, because this is not normal and can be a finding in the beginning of kidney disease. ...Read more

Get urinalysis: It is very hard to say if your urine is abnormal just by its appearance. Debris and bubbles could be protein, mucus, blood in urine or an infection. It is best to get a urine dipstick test to check for any of the above. If you have a fever with your lower back pain or symptoms of difficulty or painful urination, you could have a bladder or kidney infection and should see a doctor ...Read more

Urine has a strong oder it's dark yellow I drink water only have lower back pain right side

Could be UTI: The symptoms you have are consistent with a urinary tract infection. The fact that your back hurts implies that it may have begun to spread into the kidney. If you develop nausea and vomiting, the kidney is certainly involved. Dramatically increase fluids to the point your urine is clear. Drink apple or cranberry juice to acidify the urine. If sx don't improve, or fever, need to see doc. ...Read more

See your regular doc: Although your symptoms could be simple muscular strain/sprain, have your doctor check you out. The urine coloration could merely represent dehydration, but would check for blood and infection. Likely all of this will work out well, but why worry, be pro-active. ...Read more

Finding small amounts of sediment in urine, no blood/odor. Dipped myself which shows mod wbc. Horrible lower back pain (endometriosis). Any thoughts?

Could be UTI: I think it definitely could be a urinary tract infection but that should be checked out. Urinary sediment is certainly not normal which could signal other malfunctions going on and not just an infectious process. I recommend getting a urine sample looked at and possibly cultured, depending on what your doctor would like. Would get the sediment looked at microscopically. ...Read more
