Unable to "wee" properly ???

Postby shrimp » Mon Oct 12, 2009 11:12 pm

hi all

this is mainly for the ladies - for about 2 weeks now i have been unable to "wee" properly - i can feel the need to go but when i get there i can sit for ages before a dribble starts, then stops, then starts and continues until i feel empty. it feels as tho i cannot relax enough for a full non stop flow if that makes sense? i dont have any infections or anything but do have severe endometriosis and am wondering if that could be effecting me or maybe fibro can effect that area also.
it feels like its been so long since i had a really strong flow !!!!......

anyone else?

thanks

Hi , I also have endmetreosis although its been sent into remission for quite a while :D but i also have the problems you say about , i have treated it with cystitus remedies though and drank lots of cranberry juice and that has helped , if it persists for more than a few days though then i would check with your dr , i have had it to the stage where nothing would come out and then just blood streaks and it gets painful :( , so dont leave it too long , best wishes , wendy :)

I have this problem but for me I think it is due to the gabapentin. It might be worth checking your meds to see if it's a side effect of any of them.

hi shrimp,
i know you said this is one for the ladies but i had the same problem when i was on duloxetine and had to stop taking them. a week later and the problem has gone so i would check your meds with the doc and see if its a side effect.

thats quite interseting because for the last 3 weeks or so i have been unable to fully empty when having a number 1 and i do take gabapentin. did you go to the dr's and they said yours was due to the gabapentin Gill?

i am glad i came across this post because while its not painful it is really annoying for me when i have to sit for ages and often i think i have "gone" and get back to the bed, sofa etc to find i havent fully gone at all and i need to go back and sit again for ages!

I haven't been to the docs about it although I did mention it to the neuro when I was there. I've found that if I have to up the gabapentin the problem gets worse and vice versa so I'm almost sure it's that. Having had the opposite problem before due to a baby with a BIG head :lol: I'm not going to give the docs any chance to take me off them, especially as they are a life saver to me painwise.

thanks for your replies everyone........i have been on the same meds for quite some time now so dont think it could be those, but who knows,,,you can be tolerate with one thing today but not tomorrow.
i think it makes it worse when i go for a wee and think about the problem !!!!....

I have been known to run a tap while on the loo to see if that helps, might be worth a try :D

Amatrypaline is given to young children who have problems with wetting the bed .So if you are taking this it could be having the same effect but at a much later date when its built up in your system .Motherelle xx

when i was a carer i looked after a lady with ms who had problems going for a wee and she used a massager on her lower tummy when on the loo and rocked slowly back and forth and that worked wonders!!!

she was going to have a catheter and was desperate not too so we tried everything for her and this combination worked.

misght be worth a go?
