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 does it mean to have an overactive bladder/incontinence?

So I was doing a RealAge test and it asked if I have the condition 'overactive bladder/incontinence'. I don't understand what exactly that means, so could someone please help me?

Incontinence is simply the inability to control your bladder or bowels. Urinary incontinence is actually very common among women of all ages, but it becomes more common as you get older (I suspect that's why it was being asked on the questionnaire). There are a couple of different types of urinary incontinence. One type is called "urge incontinence", but is commonly referred to as "overactive bladder" in the popular press and in drug commercials. It is basically a condition where you have sudden, very strong urges to urinate and can sometimes not get to a bathroom in time.

I hope that helps!  (+ info)

What can I expect when I go to an urologist for a overactive bladder?

I have an appointment to see an urologist in a few weeks about an overactive bladder. Anyone have any idea what test they will run and what they will do? I'm a little nervous at what is going to happen so I have no idea. I'm already taking medicine for it, but it doesn't help much. Thanks in advance.

very simple he will give good medicine to stop overactivity after having 2-4 tests  (+ 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)

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)
