There are several, including nerve impingement, which if you are having trouble urinating or are incontinent, should be evaluated ASAP. Also kidney problems can cause pain in the back. You need to see your doctor.
if you mean frequent urination...i had that along with severe low back pain and was diagnosed with a sacroiliac joint injury. i google my diagnosis and found that frequent urination was a normal symptom for this problem. it went away after my first si joint injection.
Changes in bowl and or bladder are very common with Low Back Pain. As the nerves that supply the back and legs also travel into the pelvis and supply the bladder, intestines, etc. These symptoms are common but definately need investigating as these symptoms could worsen overtime and the medical professionals will also want to rule out a number of other conditions that are less common but could be present (these vary greatly depending on age, lifestyle etc so I won't go into these.
Preferably see a back specialist like a Chiropractor or DO. MD's are not specialist in back care and often will referr you on to one of these specialists anyway so it may be easier to seek these out directly.
I have spondyliolisthesis and I had an episode last month where I lost total control of my bladder. I just couldn't stop it. I also had 2 UTI's but with no bacteria found in my urine. My spine specialiist is blaming my back problems with nerve compression near the bladder. I also have IBS which acts up frequently. I notice which I'm sitting in a certain position, my bladder always feels full. See a doctor for an MRI so that they determine if you have nerve impingement on your bladder. Good luck, Linda
the reason for asking is that my 16 year old daughter had constant bladder pain and is unable to sit down properly. she is able to control her bladder but can't empty it, this causes constant pain around the bladder and stomach. she also has lower back pain, something she's had on and off since she was young, but now is a day to day problem. she's had x'rays, ultrasounds, urine and blood samples done with no luck. we've been to urology, gynaecology and now neurology and an mri scan booked for next week but the neurologist has told us he wouldn't be surprised if nothing is found......
I have bladder spasms since my back surgery. I mentioned it to my surgeon but he didn't seem to think there was any connection. The urologist didn't know what was causing them. It is miserable to live with. I can't have a MRI because I was burned in one
