I have degenerative disc disease herniated discs and bulging discs. I don't have any reflexes left in either leg, some incontinence. Now I cant pee at all! today my back pain flared up a lot I have been in horrible pain all of a sudden now I cant pee. I just don't know what to do!!! HELP please
I can tell you what my Neurologist told me about my degenerative disc disease. When you start to lose control of your bladder, incontinence of any kind, it becomes imperative that you are evaluated and something needs to be done. That incontinence is a sign of a serious problem. I have also confirmed this on various sites on the internet as well as my other doctors. Please see your doctor. If you don't have a Neurologist, have your family doctor recommend one to you. This can not be ignored any longer. I had very extensive surgery on my cervical spine several years ago, which took away all my pain in that area. Very shortly thereafter my lower spine started to become very painful. My neurologist is treating it with drugs at this point, but has warned me about incontinence. Call your doctor today. Let us know how it goes.
If you haven't already done so, get to the emergency room of a hospital asap and tell them what you just told us. This is very serious and will very likely require surgery. Best wishes.
I have the same problem I have had 3 lower back surgeries and after yes now I am having a hard time to pee also don't no what's up
You should go in right away. Anytime you loose body functions from a back problem then it means your nerves responsible for,your body functions are being pinched or compressed
See a neurologist ASAP
