Doctor insights on: Pain Above Bladder

Share

Bladder (Definition)

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.

Is it normal for Accutane to cause pubic bone pain? (the pain is right above my bladder, could also be muscle pain, seems to be worse after sex.)

Is it normal for Accutane to cause pubic bone pain?  (the pain is right above my bladder, could also be muscle pain, seems to be worse after sex.)

Don't think so: There is a small piece of cartridge called the pubic symphysis the can get inflamed. Try a different position so that area gets less pressure. Also the bladder is in there and if peeing more or having pain could be a contributor. I don't think the accutaine is adding to the problem but google it and stay off the complaint patient page. Look for pain in bone or cartlidge, not just pubic bone. ...Read more

Cryofibrinogenemia: Woodchuck, your condition is not a common or easy one, the underlying cause plays a huge role in its triggers but yes any body insult can trigger inflammation and flare unfortunately there is little way to predict that only close watching and some preventive measures if possible when not contraind by surg done.
