Ibuprofen and urinary retention

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and urinary retention


739070 tn?1338607002 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn (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.
Avatar f tn ) I'd like to start asking the doctor what might be wrong so I've started self testing to give them a little more info in where I am, and if I have a prostate/urinary problem. I've been single for quite a while but I notice after any prolonged sexual activity I get a bit "tight" down there, sortof feels like the prostate.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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...
Avatar m tn Went to the doctor and was asked about stds as well but the doc did an exam and said that he didn't think it would be anything like that given my only symptoms are the ones your experiencing. I did find however that my dysuria may be causes my urinary retention caused by something. Mine I believe is being caused by the nasal decongestant spray I over used. I stopped using it and the second day it seems like my discomfort is fading and the power behind my urine is coming back.
Avatar m tn 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.

Avatar n tn However, you will have to ensure that you keep your fluid intake high (over 2000 ml) and void your bladder every 4-5 hours at least to ensure that your kidneys and bladder atay healthy. This will ensure that you do not have any retention and will avoid potential infections. Additionally, including citrus fruits or juices in your diet will be an adjunct to maintaining normal function and mucosal integrity of body structures.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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).
Avatar m tn It is effective 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. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn D-MANNOSE is a sugar found in cranberries and it flushes out the bacteria by washing the bacteria off the walls of your urinary tract and then when you pee..the bacteria will go with it..i swear when i used this amazing thing about 3hours later i swear i was feeling relife..it makes me happy to share this with people bc i know how it feels to have this issue! i have had to miss work bc its so distracting and uncomfortable here is a link that will show a picture of the same bottle i bought..
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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).
Avatar m tn 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.
147426 tn?1317269232 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.
