Feels like I'm not emptying bladder. A week ago I had what I thought was a UTI but drank cranberry juice and was gone the next day. Can it be UTI rela (carisoprodol)?

Feels like I'm not emptying bladder. A week ago I had what I thought was a UTI but drank cranberry juice and was gone the next day. Can it be UTI rela (carisoprodol)?

Maybe.: May be related to the UTI, but not emptying bladder may be more complicated than just a UTI. You should probably see your doc to make sure the bladder is emptying and get to the bottom of your problem - maybe this was not a UTI to begin with. Checking bladder volumes is a very simple and non invasive test. ...Read more

Chest pain was on the right side and lasted for a week then went away when I took Pepcid for 10 days as doctor prescribed on the last day pain came back on left side age 20 after I finished lifting my game system and monitor to car what is this pain rela

Chest pain, muscular: There are a few things that could be the cause although if it was clearly associated with the lifting then a pulled muscle is a good possibility. If you are having persistent chest pain with any exertion though, or pressure, nausea, tightness or shortness of breath it could be something else. Either way I'd just have urgent care take a quick look and maybe prescribe some physical therapy. ...Read more
