I am 33 year old female and I constantly hold in my urine at night. Lately in the morning when I wake up my lower back is killing me. And this morning it hasn't gone away. Do you think that holding my urine has anything to do with that? Usually the pain goes away when I've been up for a while.
I am not sure why you need to hold the urine at night. Prolonged holding of urine, bladder distension can cause a lot of discomfort and back ache. Also it can cause urinary tract infection, leading to back ache among other symptoms.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
