Gas causing pressure on bladder

Common Questions and Answers about Gas causing pressure on bladder

gas

I have had the same problem and my OB said its bc u hold ur pee into long so after going to the bathroom your bladder is contracting which is causing you uterus to! Just keep and eye on it and if the cramping happens more then six time in a hour you should go to l&d at least that's what my dr told me but could be different bc I am pregnant with twins!
The worst symptom right now, though, is that when I eat anything or drink any liquid, I will feel light-headedness, headaches, and have a lot of gas pressure. I am avoiding high gas-producing foods like cabbage, cauliflower, beans, etc. I am also avoiding fats, because they seem to be major triggers. Whenever I feel like I need to have a bowel movement, I get very light-headed also.
Doc suggested I see gyn, and I have an appt on Tues am, but I am worried. Primary doc did not feel anything externally, but I am having bladder pressure (going at least once an hour or so) and pain on my lower right side in my pelvic area. Those are my only two symptoms, no gas, bloating, or other "classic" ovca signs. I am 39 yr old, no kids. My beautiful sis passed away one year ago after a 4-year battle. She was only 40. Any reasurrance would help.
I avoided spicy foods and food that causes gas. I took Gas-Ex from time to time when the gas pain was severe. I took Pepto Bismol when I had diarrhea and cramping. I also took over the counter acid reducers for heartburn. My recommendation is to ask for a referral right away to a gynecologist and find out what other tests should be completed to further evaluate and treat the cyst.
The worst pain/pressure is around my lower abdomen (bladder, pelvic bones areas) and peri-rectal area. I used to have very normal periods before I went on bc, mild cramping, no spotting. Now I get spotting days before I start and for a few days after, and I have moderate cramping for up to a week before my P starts. Are these normal? Is my cycle just changing because I'm older now, or should I be concerned?
I recently out of no where developed pain and pressure in my stomach and felt pressure on my bladder. I was also getting up 4-6 times a night to urinate. I went to my OB/Gyn and he did a culture on my urine and there was no uti. He gave me antibiotics for 3 days any ways and it did not go away. I have a history of uti's and I was sure this was a uti but it wasn't. I than again went into my OB/Gyn again and he did some bladder tests that were very uncomfortable.
I have a cyst on my right ovary. With all the symptoms your having plus constipation, bloating, gas and indegestion (SP). Sex does hurt, but I'm not for sure if can rupture a cyst.
Nausea or queasiness, vomiting and gas are frequent. There may or may not be belching or burping. The gall bladder, which sits just below the rib cage to the right of the stomach, is very tender to touch. It can be so painful that it takes your breath away. You may not be able to walk without bending over. Sometimes the pain radiates through to the back shoulder blade on the right side or in the middle between the shoulder blades.
I go see him on Tuesday and I'm going to ask him about it, I wonder if that adhesion is causing a blockage or something? Right there with you on the gas thing, it's horrible and embarassing!
I have had 3 children in the past and maybe it is worse when the bladder prolapses somewhat, putting pressure on the uterus. I have bladder issues. When I laugh or cough, urine may escape. I went to the doctor and he said there was no fistula. I had a colonoscopy, and I'm fine. When I lay down on my back and change positions air escapes or when I get up from a chair after sitting a while, air escapes.
Dear Jane, After a fundoplication, individuakls are unable to belch. Accu,ulation on gas in th estomach or small intestine can cause the gas bloat syndrome that you describe. The offending gas may come from digested food although usually it is the result of swallowed air. the air can come from outh breathing or talking when eating. The take down of the fundoplication should have relieved your symptoms. The propulsid should also be helpful.
Currently i'm waiting as to what, when I need surgery to repair a fistula between the bladder/prostate and rectum. From reading up on it, a fistula is an abnormal communication betwee the urinairy tract and the bowel or in my case the rectum. I early March this year I ended up in hospital after having been free of major infections for about 3 years. My hospital stay was the result of a kidney infection as well as pnumonia.
Hi Patrice 13, Your prob sounds a lot like mine. Since I kept calling it a "gas bubble" or "ball stuck-in-there", I felt that the docs didn't believe it was anything more serious than gas. Ha! This "thing" was causing serious pain & during a "flare-up" I'm not able to do much of anything - except suffer. Nothing helps. The "bubble or ball" is there all of the time, as if it's stuck. Sometimes it even seems to spasm.
All I can say is that whoever commented how they can't get an answer could have been me. I'm in the same bloat. Extensive bloating, gas, belching has been going on for years and no-one has been able to get to the bottom of it. I've had gallbladder removed and things are no better or no worse than before I had it removed.
thinking i am dying etc etc - things I know are not going to happen but I am doubting myself?????? I do have a heaache but i think this is bought on by lack of sleep, I get this pressure pushing on my chest then it crawls over my head and before i know it i am a tearful shaking mess. . . .. I dont take any drugs yet My diet is perfect - no really it is! I dont eat any junk and my doctor has said its better than most . I know its not that . I cant get much excercise because of the M.
The pain in my middle side and mid and lower back got worse, went back to doctor, was given a urine test and was told I had a bladder and kidney infection. I was put on my second antibiotic, the pain in lower back finally ceased, but I still have the pain in side and back. Also, I have pain in both feet and legs, mostly tingling in legs, but feet hurt on top and especially my big toes. Did you have any of these symptoms? I feel sluggish and don't sleep very well at night, and sweats.
High Triglycerides 8. Gall bladder was removed almost 10 years ago. 9. High blood pressure 10. Migraines My stomach tends to ache alot. Any ideas as to what might be causing this?
My OB said that can happen with a large cyst b/c it puts pressure on the top of your vaginal wall causing an intense pain and feeling like you need to pee. So, I hope that helps.
Could this be activated by the Vagus nerve being irritated post surgery by the left over gas, etc...? Am i on the right course by increasing my Paxil to address this? 2) since my gall bladder removal, i have felt bloated, have a lack of appetite (lost 25 lbs since initial symptoms 4 wks ago), diarreha is bad, and gas feels like it is everywhere in my belly. I take Prevacid (30mg) and have for last 2 months, no effect for this though.
Then throughout the day, the gas pressure/bloating builds and peaks (anywhere from 7-10 on the scale). It used to peak in the late afternoon, but now it happens sooner; I also feel my stomach get very tight immediately after eating meals as the day progresses. Actually, for the past month or so, I have noticed it has been pretty bad in the mornings (4-5 on the scale). If I can pass some of this, it will slightly subside and then start to build as the day progresses.
I lost 20 lbs which is great but now it seems like I'm more sensitive to certain foods causing stomach gas. I just recently linked my heart palps to gas/indigestion! I can predict when they are coming just by what I feel or hear from my stomach. I had a really scary episode last week that landed me back in the ER. I felt like my heart stopped- scared me to death so we went in. They hooked me up to the EKG for an hour or so and the heart palps happened while I was being monitored.
also try drinking a lot of water, in between meals (not so in the evening as it puts pressure on the bladder/kidneys). Perhaps soy milk in your case, cheese/sour cream are causing it.. also not everyone can handle raw veggie/fruit juices and they get stomach pains (ex. raw carrot, apple etc - should be mix with water) and I heard eating garlic helps with bloating/gas. They sell garlic pills in almost every nutrition stores, pharmacies...
You could be creating an inflamation in your stomach and intestinal tract causing great discomfort. It can push up on the diaphram and or vagus nerve causing pressure and great discomfort which alone can cause anxiety but also possibly disrupt blood flow or nerve firing which possibly can lead to the afib. There could be many other factors involved as well. You ruled out ulcer but mentioned a metallic taste you get.
I doubt it would lodge there,lol....Ive never heard of that before...but gas is just that...gas....it doesnt lodge itself anywhere...I can only say ask your dr. or call an advice nurse.
Hey PIB, i think I am the only one here who has something similar and mine weirdly is slightly better this week. But, I totally understand the sensation you are talking about and find it annoying. To give you background on my pain, it started in February when I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst. Gyne thought the cyst was sitting on the bowel and causing pressure. Well, the pressure from that was more "pelvic" in nature.
I began having severe chest pains on the left side, sometimes pain in the left arm and increased gas pressure about 3 months ago. I even went into the ER it was so bad, I thought I was having heart problems. I am only 22 years old and in good shape, used to work out a lot, so I didn't know how this could be. I ended up finding out that I have gall bladder sludge, which I am told will eventually turn into stones.
extra beats for 6 wks afterwards. At the follow-up, the EP seemed to think that I should go on low-dose Atenolol for some ventricular beats that showed up on an event monitor. He never addressed the chest pain, ongoing fatigue or breathing problems. Before you think I'm sending this to the wrong forum (!), here's where things get GI-oriented. I had a major episode of burning pain, ctr of chest, clavicle level 1 wk ago.
Sometimes the pain is so severe I feel I can't breathe and get nauseated. It takes a while for the pressure to let up. I also get hiccups while this is going on which seem to alleviate some of the symptoms somehow. I also feel like food and drink get trapped in this area as I feel water moving around in the upper abdomen. Not sure if it's a sensation or actually happening but it concerns me as well.
If you start taking Advil or Aleve the day before your period starts, it'll cut down on prostaglandin production, and should reduce your symptoms. Taking Gas-X and/or a half-dose of Imodium AD may also help. Cutting back on your sodium and caffeine intake, and exercising are other self-care measures.
Don't know that this really helps but I had odd pressure it felt like my uterus was going to fall out & if I'd sit down or lie down it would go away I never did this til after my son was born especially if I had went to the mall or just stood alot the day before it would really bother me & if my period was fixing to start the pressure would startup.
