Urinary bladder??????????


I had a tendency of peeing very often and after I'm done peeing I pee more! So I checked with da doctor. He said that because my urine sample had a slight raise of white blood cell like (not exactly normal but could be considered normal) that the case came from an infection. Due to my young age (16) he hypothesized that it couldn't possible be stones. So he gave me antibiotics and a bladder pain reliever, the morning after I took the pill which was 17:00 I felt somewhat better, for like half the day. Then and 17:00 today it felt slightly worse. When do the meds actually take significant effect???
the urinalysis says that my white blood cell was level two-three, not much but can possibly be an infection...
when can the meds heal meal me or make a feel at least significantly better?
----------

how are you feeling today? Has the medicine working Yet?
If you are still in pain I would go back to the doctor you may need a stronger antibiotic. What mg is your antibiotic 250 or 500,
It sounds like your immune system is run down, you need to take a multivitamin to build your self up. Drink heaps of water too to flush out the infection, cranberry juice is fantastic for urine infections and will calm and fix to bladder wall. I hope this helps have a better day hopefully!  (+ info)

urinary bladder?


can it burst or break? is there a limit in the volume of the urine it can store?

answer if you DO know
----------

the bladder can hold over 3 liters of urine at a time. it is a muscular organ and therefore stretches. the feeling of needing to pee is caused by the muscles at the back of the bladder wall stretching as it fills. it is very unlikely that the bladder will burst as it is so stretchy  (+ info)

What is the difference between a bladder infection and a urinary tract infection?


I have had both both but I never really understood the difference. A bladder infection obviously affects your bladder opposed to your urinary tract and the UTI affects the urinary tract. How do the symptoms differ? Are they both treated the same way? Thanks
----------

The symptoms of both are about the same, with the exception of pain / discomfort in the pelvic area (for bladder infection) and the kind of urine you pass (cloudy / strong smelling for cystitis and bacteria in the urine for a UTI.

Bladder infection (cystitis) symptoms

■A strong, persistent urge to urinate
■A burning sensation when urinating
■Passing frequent, small amounts of urine
■Blood in the urine (hematuria)
■Passing cloudy or strong-smelling urine
■Discomfort in the pelvic area
■A feeling of pressure in the lower abdomen
■Low-grade fever

UTI symptoms
■A strong, persistent urge to urinate
■A burning sensation when urinating
■Passing frequent, small amounts of urine
■Blood in the urine (hematuria) or cloudy, strong-smelling urine
■Bacteria in the urine (bacteriuria)  (+ info)

What are some home remedies for urinary tract infection/bladder infection?


What are some home remedies for urinary tract infections/bladder infections?
----------

One of the best home remedies for urinary tract infections is to simply drink lots of water. By drinking lots of fluids, you will force yourself to urinate more often, which will help your body flush out the bacteria that is causing the infection. A recommendation is to drink 6-8 large glasses of water per day. Cranberry juice contains high concentrations of Vitamin C and Quinolic Acid, both of which are known to help treat UTI since they help prevent bacteria from anchoring onto bladder walls. Therefore, if you have UTI, drinking 12 to 24 oz of cranberry juice can be very effective. As a preventive measure against urinary tract infections, drinking at least 3 oz per day works quite well. Echinacea is an herb that contains a number of substances which help fight infections including UTI. You can either drink an Echinacea tea once per day after lunch or dinner, or consume high-quality 300mg Echinacea capsules or tablets once per day. Echinacea capsules can be found in many health stores.  (+ info)

How to ward off a bladder/urinary tract infection?


I'm feeling the pain and extraordinary discomfort which signal that I've got a bladder/urinary tract infection starting. I'm trying to drink LOTS of water in an effort to flush my system out before the infection really sets in. I've been able to do that before. My question is, besides lots of water and cranberry juice, what other liquids are good to drink to help flush my system? Also, if cranberry juice is good, would it also be good or better to eat cranberries? Thanks for helpful answers.
----------

It is considered normal for women to get about 3 UTIs a year. I used to suffer from very frequent urinary tract infections. I tired water, cranberry juice, cranberry pills, was very careful hygienically, did all the recommended steps regarding intercourse, and still sufferred from them. Turns out I had a bacterial imbalance in the bladder and urethra, so the "good bacteria" were not prevalent enough to fight off the "bad bacteria." I started taking an acidopholous pill every day. These can be purchased at the pharmacy counter, as it is a refrigerated pill, but you do not need a prescription. If you take it soon enough, you may be able to ward off an impending infection. I have not had a bladder infection once since I started this practice (almost three years).
It is better to eat cranberries or take a pill because most of the juice is not really a juice, but a "cocktail" with added sugar. The sugar basically "feeds" the bacteria that are already trying to get a hold. Alcohol has the same effect. If you get lower back pain, the infection has moved to your kidneys and you need to get medical attention. Good luck!!!!  (+ info)

What causes a neurogenic bladder and then other neuro.symptoms in a woman in her late 30's?


I am having my third implant put into my back to stimulate the area around my bladder to have the urge to urinate on my own, instead of using catheters all the time. I am also having strange weakness in my hands, legs, plus many memory issues. I fall and lose my balance all the time. Why is it so hard to get help? I feel like I am alone in this, all my health care people either have no clue or they are just sick of dealing with my issues. I try to deal with it but I also worry is this something my young adult children might develop as well as they grow.

Here is what I found on webmd that may explain the neuro problems that you are having:

Polyglucosan Body Disease, Adult
General Discussion
Adult polyglucosan body disease (APBD) is a rare, chronically progressive, metabolic disorder with severe neurological expression. It is caused by the abnormal accumulation of microscopic material (polyglucosan bodies), predominantly within the myelinated nerve fibers (motor neurons). The polyglucosan bodies are spherical and composed of large, complex, sugar-based molecules (branched polysaccharides).

The disorder typically affects both upper and lower motor neurons, resulting from nerve damage within the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) respectively. Symptoms usually begin during middle age or later and usually include muscle weakness, loss of sensation, and/or wasting of muscles (atrophy) in the arms and/or legs. Impaired bladder control (neurogenic bladder) and/or mental confusion (dementia) also occur.

Why do we scan (use ultrasound) to view the urinary bladder? Are there any sites i can go to besides wikipedia


Like why do we use sonography to view the urinary bladder??? What would happen if we didn't have the urinary bladder?
----------

most probably they're looking for stones/mass. cystoscopy is better if cancer is being ruled out. without the urinary bladder, you won't be able to store urine and will be leaking out from time to time and would be more prone to infections in the kidney.  (+ info)

Is there a difference between bladder infections and urinary tract infections?


I've comonly been diagnosed with Bladder Infections, but there was a time I was told I had a Urinary Tract Infection. The only difference I noted was that during Bladder Infections I didn't pee out blood like when I had a urinary tract infection. I was just wondering if there is a difference or if they are both the same?
----------

Yes they are the same try drinking more cranberry juice NOT cranberry juice cocktail just cranberry juice, it will help your body clean out all the ickys  (+ info)

Is there a home remedy for urinary bladder polyps?


I was diagnosed with urinary bladder polyps over a year ago and saw them on a monitor during a cystoscopy. The treatment was apparently going to be very involved and would've required me to lose time from work. My work wasn't going to allow it. Now I don't have health insurance and am trying to find out if there's a natural remedy/home remedy to get rid of the polyps. I'm tired of wearing pads for the "just in case" sneezes, coughs, and hardy laughs.
----------

polyps can be cancerous, so they need to come out sooner or later.  (+ info)

I have a kidney stone and is already on bladder. does anyone knows a what can I use to open urinary conduct?


I have a kidney stone and is already on my bladder almost ready to come out . does anyone knows a what can I use to open urinary conduct?
----------

Kidney stones are helped to be pushed out of the body through urinary pressure. This means that you need to drink allot of things to help build this up. Most often things like cranberry juice, water, and eating all the watermelon you want will always help you do this. Also, you need to make sure that5 the stone doesn't get caught anywhere too, which it can at any time. If you start to feel pain or see blood coming out then please call the doctor immediately. If it's past office hours you'll need to have someone take you to the ER. This condition can be easy or hard all depending on how large the stone is and how hard or easy it'll be to get it out. Good luck and God Bless  (+ info)
