Re: Bladder Issues

The only thing that "might" be related to your spinal cord would be bladder problems but without testing from a Urologist there is no way to know if your urinary problems are even Neurologically related. Thanks, Snoopy. That is helpful to know. My exam is pretty normal. I have some odd differences ...

Re: Bladder Issues

Update: My neurologist (who is an MS Specialist) doesn't want to do an MRI on my spine because he is only looking for a structural cause of my trigeminal neuralgia. This is very frustrating - and feels like he is dismissing any other symptoms I tell him about. If we do the MRI and see no structural ...

Re: Bladder Issues

Thank you everyone for your responses and suggestions. I will make an appointment with a urologist.. the tricky part is just making sure I can get in when I am experiencing the symptoms. I do suspect I am not able to empty my bladder all the way because I go, and then immediately have to go again. T...

Re: Bladder Issues

Jimmylegs: I don't drink caffeine - just water (or sparkling water) all day and milk sometimes in my cereal. Now and then I have juice or tea after dinner at home where I can go to the restroom as much as I need. Anything with liquid does this to me. Fruit, soup, cereal, curry.. you get the point. I...

Re: Bladder Issues

Snoopy: When I first started having these issues I had my urine tested for everything, and the doctor did a few other tests too. I think my thyroid? Everything came up normal. I may seek an appointment with a urologist in the future, but since this comes and goes, I'm not sure that typical solutions...

Bladder Issues

Hi Everyone, I am currently undiagnosed, pending my second MRI (to satisfy two incidents in space and TIME). One of the symptoms I mentioned to my MS specialist (who rolled his eyes like whatever???) is trouble with my bladder. Sometimes I have to pee again as soon as I leave the bathroom. I feel li...

Re: Interpret MRI

Thank you again! That is helpful. I will check out the article you cited as well. On another note, I have been experiencing tingling sensations (like a bug crawling on my skin) along one wrist and forearm intermittently this last week. Another one of those only mildly annoying symptoms, that is like...

Re: Interpret MRI

Thanks. What does it mean when it says "Differential diagnosis includes foci of demyelination?" Does that mean I have that kind of foci or that a diagnosis would require it and it's not certain that I do?

Re: Interpret MRI

Thanks for your help. Below I will write the test, then my number, then the "standard range." WBC Differential: There were tons of percentages which weren't flagged. The only thing flagged was the Imm Gran Abs Auto. 0.04x10(9)/L... standard is 0.00-0.03x10(9)/L. I can type the rest out if you need, ...
