I was in a car accident 2 years ago and ever since then I have been urinating frequently about 40 times a day. I have had the following tests:
MRI of the Brain - They did find any thing but my urologist wants it redone because they didn't use contrast (done 2 years ago)
MRI of lumbar spine - A bulging disc was found. This is going to be repeated because they didn't use contrast (done 2 years ago)
MRI of Thoracic Spine - They used contrast and found Hemangiomata at T4, T9 and T12 (done last week)
EMG (done 3 weeks ago)
So my latest MRI of the Thoracic spine shows I have Hemangiomata. What is that exactly? And could it be contributing to my frequent urination. I need help. The medication I am on dehydrates me and I can't drink anything without having an urge or using the bathroom. If you have any suggestions please help.
your bladder and bowels has somthing to do with your thoracic spine ,i have a spine injury (T6 T7 T8 T9) and my bladder and bowels are pretty messed up along with below my belly button is numb i have transverse myelitis caused by whiplash (car accident) i take vesicare for my bladder and it helps me out alot you should try it
I was in a car accident about two months ago, I am still dealling with the whiplash and concussion. Recently, last few days, I have the sensation that I have urinated myself. It feels like urine us passing from my penis and it also feels warm/wet on my legs. When I rush to the bathroom to check myself there is nothing. I used toliet tissue to check for moisture on the tip of my penis as well as my underwear and pants, always dry. Am I going insane?
Nope. And it is not odd to check it, either. I do it, too. I had a lower back injury 4 years ago, and have had more and more trouble ever since with bladder control. That is what brings me here today. Just keep an eye on it, but don't get paranoid that you wet yourself, just keep checking if you feel the need. Get a good doctor and if they seem bad, they are, and get a new one at the first sign they are not listening to your needs and concerns. It may well be the back injury causing this, and in certain cases, as my doctor told me, if you do wet yourself, you need immediate surgery. Emphasizing again if it is the back and injured in a particular spot. Only a good doctor can tell you that, and you will need to have an MRI or maybe an xray, I can't tell you because I'm not a doctor, just that is what they did to me. Too bad my doctor went rogue on me and I can't trust any of them at this time. I will get another one now. Good luck and no, you're not crazy.
