Hi, if no infection strong smelling urine is usually an indication of dehydration.

Since i hurt a disc in my back last December, i have a bit of a problem with my bladder, i dont realise i need to go, until i really need to go, then wheather i need to go alot or a little, the urgency seems the same to me, and quite often i will go a little, then 10 mins or so later go again, but go lots!! another strange symptom lol.

Yeh got this problem too :roll: but was told by doc its another wee parcel of fun from fm.
doc says as bladder is another muscle then what do I expect as after all I do have a muscle condition :roll: It is so annoying constantly wanting to go and even when I do go it comes out in wee dribbles and takes forever, family all laugh at me now as they know when I use the bathroom it will take a while :yikes: glad I make someone laugh.

Take care, Anne :hugs:

I do get problems with my bladder, but not like you.
If i lift anything heavy or stretch then a small amount of wee will leak out.

I get this.. not funny is it. I'm not sure if it's FM but it could be... irritable bladder is an associated problem and it can go either way if you pardon the expression. Either you can't hold it in or nothing comes out. I also find that when I think I've finished I go to stand up and it starts again :roll:

It's a question of either waiting for everything to relax enough or pushing as hard as you can :( It can also lead to bladder infections as sometimes it doesn't all come out and some goes back up which can transfer germs.

Hi

Are you on Amitriptyline? Apparently this is one of the side effects! Needing a wee but cant go..

Apart from being an Anti-depressant and used for Nerve Pain, Amitriptyline is also used for bed-wetters because it has the effect on the bladder that you describe.

Be interesting to know if you are on it!

oh yes. the other year i was meant to go for tests.

they wanted to put a tube up into my bladder and a tube or whatever it is up my bum at the same time and try go to the loo! i couldnt bare the thought of that, so cancelled the appointment.

I get so fed up with sitting there and waiting for something to happen, quite often i tell my brain, just go!

I've not mentioned to my gp about the problems as dont want the tests, will grin and bare it!

I too have a bladder problem to the point where I actually wear pads for incontinence now. On a good it it could just be super sanitary towels but on a bad day it's proper tena ladies.

as women we know that if you have had children this can sometimes cause bladder problems in the future, if you are dribling when you cough laugh or lift anything heavy, then you should tell your gp. It can also be a side effect from tabs, and like others have said the bladder is a muscle and we have problems with our muscles.

i mentioned my bladder problems to my locum yesterday..(my GP has already said its stress incontinence), she said for it to have any effect i will have to do pelvic floor exercises for at least 3 months for it to stop.
I have had a number of ops because of the crohns so i have been cut through my stomach muscles every time, this has made them very weak.

I have fibro with a number of years and 2 years ago I started having trouble with my bladder including pain in my back, symptoms that a lot of you have described in your posts. I went to a Urologist and he said I have Interstitial Cystitis which is where the lining of the bladder becomes inflamed [i think thats what he said]. From researching IC on the net i found out that it is something that is commen among people with fibro. I had a cystoscopy & bladder distension [not the most comfortable thing in the world!!!] but that didnt really work so he put me on medication [vesicare] and that has made a big difference. I still have a few little symptoms but nothing like i had. It might be worth asking your GP if what you have could be Interstitial Cystitis.
