- Can urinary retention cause severe dizziness and lightheartedness?
I had a kidney infection for 1.5 months diagnosed in August this year it took 2 lots of antibiotics to kick it but now I am left with SEVERE urinary retention I had a cystoscopy which only lasted for 24 hours it was done when I was awake so I think that it wasn't very affective by the next morning I was again in agony with lower back pain and pain around my kidneys. I had to swap consultants I am seeing my new one tomorrow but now I am suffering with severe urinary retention I pass urine 1-2 times a day I try to go if my bladder feels full I can be sat on my toilet for 20 mins and its just a few drops so I get bad lower stomach pain too from the pressure as I cannot go properly. My consultant gave me Cefalexin but my GP was very wary giving it to me as I am only 24 years old and they don't usually give it to women.
Does urinary retention cause bad dizziness and how can I help the symptoms because the back and kidney pain along with the lower stomach pain keeps me up for most of the night I am getting about 4-5 hours sleep I work as a nanny so I am constantly feeling exhausted
- Bethanechol is helping my anxiety and stress and my doctor does not know why (1 answer)
Want to know why the bethanechol 25mg helps me so much in my anxiety both in bladder as well as my mood?
I have been using bethanechol 25mg the past few months and have developed diarrhea with no explanation why. I was taken off bethanechol chloride because they felt it may have been the reason for my diarrhea . I developed my lower belly anxiety again while off. Was put back on because they don't think it has been the cause of the diarrhea . I am again getting great relief from my anxiety. i now and the doctors dont understand why I am getting such good relief from it. I believe this is a clue to why I have to deal with such discomfort in my abdominal area both front and back. I currently have pain in lower back that keeps me from being active and possibly not sleeping correctly. I have had pain so bad it took over a day on an ice pack to get relief. I wake up with anxiety and back pain every morning and also when when I lay down at night it aggravates my lower back pain and get pressure on my belly area as well. I have had an mri and am set up for a consult for a cortizone shot into my spine. I do not know for sure if this a good idea to be done or not. I have not injured my back in that area unless it happened about 6 years ago and believe they are still missing something.
- Is my chance of tremors high if i am getting treated with endep?
The oxycodone hydrochloride also has naloxone hydrochloride in it (targin) and its pretty new on the market to treat pain + constipation. i was put on endep right after i noticed getting nightmares because of the mirtazapine i was taking for my chronic depression.
