Ibuprofen and urinary retention

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and urinary retention

ibuprofen

I'll do a post on the different causes of urinary problems like incontinence and retention and how they show up on the testing if people are interested.
This is alongside a three or so year history of chronic leg and pelvic pain and weakness, urinary retention such that I have to self-catheterize, and balance problems such that I now use a cane. I was seen for years at an osteoarthritis clinic for minimal problems in my hips, although it is fairly rampant through my back, and finally have got the go ahead for a referral to a rheumatologist.
I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
Thus, although it is possible, urinary frequency is not a noted side effect of ibuprofen or celebrex. I would investigate more frequent causes of urinary frequency before attributing it to the medications. This would include diabetes, infection or kidney dysfunction. If the ibuprofen or celebrex led the kindey dysfunction (as measured by the creatinine clearance), then it is possible that the urinary output could be affected. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
(Each contains 200mg of ibuprofen/nurofen/whatever and 12.8mg of codeine.) Then I drank. A lot. I felt extremely high and drunk for quite a long time. Then I passed out. I woke up, of course, feeling like crap. So I slept all day. I tried eating an apple, but I promptly threw the quasi-digested contents back up. I've been drinking a little, but it makes me want to vomit. Which I did, twice. Nothing too bad so far - we all know what a hangover is like.
To be honest I can't ever recall my urine flow being particularly fantastic. I'm 30yo male in otherwise good Heath. At the request of my doctor I've been tested for STD's to rule out an infection there, all clear, though I have also been screened for UTI's in the past with no real conclusions, relating to an ongoing sexual issue that comes and goes. 3years ago i had a prostate check that was also OK.
Has she experienced any recent night sweats, weight loss, hematuria, urinary retention, frequency, hesitancy, or cough? No. does she have a history of cancer, overseas travel, recent surgery, fever, or increased pain at rest? Overseas travel to Europe but that was 6 years ago. We're not sure if the pain increases at rest because of the position or if its because the Motrin wears off. does her pain ever wake her from sleep? No. Has she had any recent change in bowel or bladder habits? No.
i had sex twice and everything was ok, and after the third time the problems began. my partner and i had hard sex and my penis hurt a bit when she was on top of me. i urinated a few minutes after ejaculating and blood came out along with a very big blood clot at the end. i had sexual intercourse about 7 or 8 times before seeing a doctor. the same occurred except for 2 times, in which no blood appeared.
bilateral sciatica (sometimes a sharp stabbing, mostly deep ache), severe pins/needles/razor blades to left heel (unable to apply any pressure to left heel and I have started having this periodically to right heel), non painful electrical shocks to left leg and foot and sometimes right leg and foot, lower back pain (mostly deep ache and sometimes sharp stabbing to L4-L5 area), pain to left lateral hip, pain to left groin and sometimes right groin.
The other way to help to reduce the puffyness, is to cut down on your intake of salt and sugar and sugary foods and drinks. When you do this and start eating a healthy well balanced diet, you will find that you will running to the loo for a pee, because the body is getting rid of the fluid retention. When very overweight people start to diet they can lose as much as 10lbs in a week, this is the fluid being extreted from the body.
a heart that is not pumping efficiently (you would probably know if this was the problem--shortness of breath, cold extremities, an abnormal echocardiogram), kidney trouble (you'd likely have other symptoms-- urinary tract, etc), certain drugs which cause water retention, lymphedema, and venous insufficiency (lower legs would be swollen, red, and the edema would go away if you elevated the feet for awhile or wore a compression-type hose.
I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
also the extra fluids will help with the bowel movements too. The pain in your legs and feet are also probably related. They will get better. Take ibuprofen and/or tylenol as needed. Another pain relief option is dermoplast spray ( or any other topical anesthetic that doesn't have steroids in it ). You want the blue can for the genital area, not the red can. I prefer it because you can spray it on without having to touch your lesions. You can find it at most drugstores.
Getting home I could barely walk and had my boyfriend take me to Safeway to get AZO pills. I took AZO last night along with Ibuprofen and again this morning but I am still feeling pain. (The AZO hasn't kicked in yet) All I'm wondering is what it could be, or what I should do. I don't want to waster money on antibiotics that the docs tell me to take, then call me to stop because there was no infection. And again, this has been happening almost once a month...
Good Morning Tramadol Warriors! Gorgeous sunny day. And people who understand. Welcome. We're so glad you found us!
I am up and down and swell up with fluid retention. My doctor told me to stop taking Ibuprofen as this can cause oedema. As well as to stop taking bendrofumethiazide (one of my high blood pressure medications) as this can cause problems with fluid retention. I have had a number of urinary tract infectins with a lot of sediment recently so may have had or still have a kidney stone.
Have you experienced any recent night sweats, weight loss, hematuria, urinary retention, frequency, hesitancy, or cough? Do you have a history of cancer, overseas travel, recent surgery, fever, or increased pain at rest? does your pain ever wake you from sleep? Have you had any recent change in bowel or bladder habits? Do you have any altered sensation in your groin, buttocks, or inner thighs?
I have very bad oedema besides the myxedema. My abdomen and stomach looks like a bad case of ascites. Ugh! This fluid retention has improved with thyroxine but i'm not optimally treated by any means. Pitting oedema is rare in hypothyroidism. The body uses magnesium to convert vitamin D to active vitamin D so vitamin D supplement "side effects" are usually due to magnesium deficiency. Too much calcium also lowers magnesium.
a lot and was not on Meds xcept BCP, Verapamil, Ibuprofen, frequent shaking episodes, night and cold sweats, extreme fatigue, began noticing a significant decrease in muscle mass on the lt side, freq.
That is the only place my clothes are tight, otherwise too big. Nausea also started about 1-2 months ago and urinary retention several months ago. So I am a bit worse than I was a year ago with the symptoms. I also have a strong family history of cancers - my paternal aunt with breast cancer, my maternal grandmother and uncle with colon cancer, and my younger sister died when she was 2 of cancer (about 38 years ago).
Regular saline irrigation does not work in the upper sinuses, because of gravity, but the Sinus Flush defeats gravity. It works incredibly well with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down.
The rheumatologist did not tell me it had to be limited to knees and feet to be episodic arthritis. Of course, he didn't help me any either. Also, I read about mast cell disorder (I also have gotten flushed face before) in relation to postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (something I was diagnosed with). This is on ndrf and dinet websites: "An increase in urinary methylhistamine, a marker of mast-cell activation, can be found in these patients.
I had a very rare presentation of a primary HSV-2 infection earlier this year - it went systemic, infected my spinal cord and caused something called Elsberg Syndrome (complete urinary retention, constipation and numbness in the sacral region including buttocks, genitals, inner thighs, backs of legs and outside edge of the soles of my feet). I have recovered almost all feeling now, but have been left with really severe nerve pain, tingling and itching.
Everyone I know whos taken stuff exactally as the dr said has never become mentally addicted to any pills,just physically which when you withdrawal can be controlled sadly with other meds(usually benzos to help sleep,Immodium for stomach cramps,and Ibuprofen for the pain).
The fatigue with vertigo is worse!! Two and a half years ago one morning I was putting on my shoes and socks and realized I couldn't lift my R leg onto the other to put on my socks. I could barely lift it off the ground. I saw my internist who noted pathologically hyperactive reflexes on both knees and ankles, weakness of the R hip flexors and referred me to the neurologist I had seen before for migraines.
The pain has not been too bad, in fact I never took any of the pain meds they gave me, just ibuprofen for a few days. My energy level has still not returned to %100 though and night time erections are uncomfortable (but not extremely). I still have the supra-pubic cath and I now have a foley cath through my penis which drains into a leg bag. This has been a bother since it sometimes slips down my leg, has leaked a time or two and is just a nuisance.
It´s as if my penis is retracting (= hard flaccid state) and it´s affecting my urethra / spinchters too (= urine retention / not emptying completely) The only could-be-diagnosis i´ve had is prostatitis due to the urinary problem and some tingling i´ve felt there.
Right before I had cervical fusion 6 months ago, I had a UTI and was treated with Cipro. A month ago, I developed urinary frequency and urgency and thought I had another UTI. They did a urinalysis and found I had a bunch of microscopic blood in my urine, but no infection. The urologist had me do a CT of the abdomen that was normal. A few weeks ago, I developed a funny buzzing feeling in my lower pelvis that came every few minutes. It wasn't painful but just very annoying.
he prescribed ibuprofen, warm baths, supportive underwear, and regular intercourse with my wife, and to check back with him in a week. have done all of the above in the last 24 hours, and still have the vibrating. however, from reading all of these posts, one thing that sticks out for me is that i had a micro-lumbar discectomy a year ago to repair a herniated disc (L5-S1). maybe that has something to do with it.
I get these unexplained chills all the time, where im freezing cold with goose bumps all over my body. They hurt and I can barely walk they are so bad sometimes. I check my temp when I get these episodes and its perfectly normal. I do not have a infection or am not sick. Im not even in a cold environment. Everyone around me is not cold. Its the weirdest thing, and I cant find a answer for it. Its like my body is messed up and sending these chills for no reason. Please help.
