Can a neurogenic bladder be from holding urine?

Atonic Bladder. Can result from holding back urination constantly or repeatedly, but isn't very common. Over the years have seen a couple of patients who developed atonic bladders from chronic suppression of urge to urinate. They essentially became neurogenic bladders & had to manage bladder emptying by self clean intermittent catheterization. However, strictly speaking you cannot develop NB by holding urine.
No. You cannot cause a neurogenic bladder from holding your urine. A neurogenic bladder is when the nerves that cause your bladder to contract are either damaged or not functioning properly. Common causes would be spinal cord injuries, parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis.

See below. Methylcobalamin is a Vitamin B 12 supplement and Pregabalin is a medication commonly used to treat nerve-related pain. Neither medication should have any adverse effect on your bladder. . Read more...
Probably not really. Urinary retention-total inability of bladder to empty-is the end stage of dysfunction of bladder muscles & nerves; neurogenic bladder is designated for one with distinct identifiable causes like that after spinal cord injury, nerve injury by radical pelvic surgery, diabetic neuropathy, etc., at end, still resulting in urinary retention, which would not be helped with B12 or pregabalin.

I have a problem of neurogenic bladder?

Neurogenic bladder. There are many varieties of neurogenic bladder. The first step is visiting a urologist for cystoscopy and urodynamic testing to attempt to determine the actual dysfunction present and potentially, its cause. Read more...
Urologic evaluation. 1) detailed medical history & examination, 2) urodynamic studies, ideally with simultaneous video fluoroscopy, 3) cystoscopic examination. Problems are primarily urinary incontinence or inability to urinate/urinary retention. Management usually successful & includes medication, intermittent self catheterization &/or surgery. Latter includes artificial sphincter, bladder enlargement etc. Read more...

What are the tests for neurogenic bladder?

Urodynamics. Urodynamics refers to the process of testing the bladder for its ability to accommodate filling, the pressure at which it does so, symptoms that filling may cause as well as evaluating flow rate and leakage, if any. This can be done in a relatively simple fashion in the office, or in a more sophisticated clinic setting with video and fluoroscopic information added to the basic information above. Read more...

I have a neurogenic bladder is there a cure?

Essentially no. Bruising of spinal cord can cause temporary neurogenic bladder which resolves spontaneously. Occasional cure has been reported by nerve transfer and anastomosis and is a possible hope for the future. Urinary incontinence can be managed in most cases by intermittent catheterization, with or without medication, artificial urinary sphincters, bladder augmentation or urinary diversions etc. Read more...

Is there a cure for a neurogenic bladder?

Not likely. Actually it depends on the cause of neurogenic bladder. Neurogenic bladder means a bladder that does not work correctly due to a fault in the nerve supply. Usually the cause is not treatable e.g. Paralysis due to stroke. If the cause happens to be treatable then the bladder will get better. Read more...
It is treatable. The first line agents to manage neurogenic bladder, or more specifically, detrusor overactivity, are anticholinergic medications such as oxybutinin or tolterodine. Ultimately, if no benefit is gained from these medications, a trial of onabotulinumtoxina (botox) injections in the bladder wall may be tried and has been found to control the symptoms of incontinence for up to a year.

Essentially no. Neurogenic bladder dysfunction can seldom be cured if nerve connection between bladder and brain is disrupted as in spinal cord injuries or myelomeningocele.Strokes, ms, spinal cord bruising can cause temporary nb and can recover spontaneously.Usually managed by a combination of clean intermittent catheterization & medication/condom.Some may be "cured" by an artificial sphincter or ?Nerve replants.
