Fatigue and urinary problems
I'm a 40 year old female. For the past few weeks I've been so tired and have been unable to urinate like I have in the past. This past weekend I only urinated 2 small dribbles in 2 days. My kidneys are killing me as well as my lower abdomen. I went to my Gyne she tested my urine for infections and STD's and found nothing. A few days later I was in dire pain and went to the ER. They tested my blood and urine and did a CT scan and found absolutely nothing wrong with me. They used a catheter to get out the urine but only got out a cup or so. They sent me home with a plastic urinal to measure my urine. How could I measure my urine if I couldn't go?
The next day the symptoms started subsiding and I was able to urinate like a normal person. I was feeling great until today because I started feeling the same problem coming back again. Especially being tired and having pain in my lower abdomen, almost a burning pain, but not when I urinate. I don't know where to turn. If I go back to the ER they'll think I'm crazy. It almost felt like they thought I was lying about my problem and rushed me out to bring in some bleeding car accfident victims. Can someone please help me if you have ever experienced anything like this? Thank you so much! Tracy

Re: Fatigue and urinary problems
I am a 36yr old female who had similar symptoms...I started out I thought I had a uti becuase I had the symptoms I went to the dr and they tested and said no go see your family dr. I went to him and after many test and finally on an x-ray found out I had kiddney stones. the stones get caught in the tract and you cant pee till the preasure builds up so bad it pushes them through. then when they enter the blader you can have spasams...that really hurts...I have had this problem now since christmas of 06. they put me on flowmax...I know it is used to treat men's prostate problems but it helps open up the urinary tract so you can pee again...its been a god sent. but on the other hand now I am having anxiety problems I never had before...wondering if it is from the flowmax...I would go see a specialist if it continues.
