Urine Retention/Bladder Shut Down
Thought I would see if you had any input.. I'm a 19y/o healthy female, no medical history.....6 days ago I started having trouble urinating.. I could end up going if I sat for half an hour or if I stood in the shower for awhile... I woke up two days ago and couldn't go at all.. Went to the ER and they ran tests, all came back fine, put a catheter in and I had 1400 cc of urine, sent me home with a Foley and sent me to a urologist today. He ran tests and my bladder has shut down for no reason known so far. Sending me to a neurologist to see about early signs of MS. Weird story I know..

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include GU growths/ masses obstruction urine flow, neuro-muscular causes etc. If a urological exam has turned out fine, possible neurogenic causes would need to be considered, requiring a detailed evaluation by a neurologist. After a definite diagnosis is made, a management plan can be drafted accordingly.

Take care!
