  • A New Symptom (Sudden Twinges)

    Over the last couple of weeks I've been feeling sudden twinges coming from my right ureter where it connects to the bladder It's kind of a slight cramping/ burning sensation but nothing too severe .These twinges happen mostly when I am sitting or lying in bed. They last just a few seconds but they start hitting me about every 15 to 20 seconds. These can hit me whether I feel a strong urge to pee or not. I often have a slight urge to pee 24/7. Sometimes after 4 or 5 minutes they suddenly go away. I can go pee and they can sometimes come back stronger within 2 or 3 minutes or they go away completely for up to an hour or two. If I'm standing or walking I do not feel these twinges. I wonder what could be causing this. Could it something coming down from my right kidney. It only hits from the right side of my groin. It's soooooo annoying to always be aware of your bladder. I hate this horrible disease.

    Have you made any changes? Diet? New medications, including herbs? Activities? Laundry or personal soap? If this continues, you might want to keep a detailed diary to see if you can track a cause. Will you have an appointment with your doctor soon?

    Sending healing wishes,
