Symptoms of Neurogenic Bladder
What Are the Symptoms of Neurogenic Bladder?
The following are the most common symptoms of neurogenic bladder. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently.
Symptoms may include:
- Urinary tract infection
- Kidney stones - these may be difficult to determine because you may not be able to feel pain associated with kidney stones if you have spinal cord abnormalities. Symptoms of kidney stones include:
- Urinary incontinence
- Small urine volume during voiding
- Urinary frequency and urgency
- Dribbling urine
- Loss of sensation of bladder fullness
The symptoms of neurogenic bladder may resemble other conditions and medical problems. Always consult your physician for a diagnosis.
Complications of a neurogenic bladder
The following problems are often associated with a neurogenic bladder:
- Urine leakage often occurs when the muscles holding urine in do not get the right message.
- Urine retention often happens if the muscles holding urine in do not get the message that it is time to let go.
- Damage to the tiny blood vessels in the kidney often happens if the bladder becomes too full and urine backs up into the kidneys, causing extra pressure.
- Infection of the bladder or ureters often results from urine that is held too long before being eliminated.
