Frequent Urination/Leg Pain

Hey I'm 19 years old and I have some issues. I have frequent urination, pain in my inner thigh on my left side, and constipation. Those symptoms have been present for about the past 2 and a half years. The pain and constipation has been about the same but the frequent urination have progressively gotten worse to the point that I have to pee about every 30 min.

A couple of other things that could be related to it so I'm just throwing it out there:
I have a cyst on my left kidney.
My left leg tends to click with I walk.
I have pain like sensations on my lower back/buttock area of my left side.
I have had inguinal hernias on both sides.
And I had a femoral hernia on my left side that was recently repaired.

I have seen many doctors about my leg pain because that was my primary concern over these past few years and no help. About 6 months ago when my urinary problems started to get bad I went and saw a urologist. Since then all he did was put me on 2 different medications for overactive bladder that did nothing. I just went and saw another urologist and he put me on medication for my prostates, and so far those have done nothing either.

Please help tell me some possibilitys of what could be wrong with me.

Thanks,
Chad

Re: Frequent Urination/Leg Pain

Hey collegestudent (I'm one too),

I also am having trouble with frequent urination and constipation, mine is related to nerve damage. Have you had any back MRIs done ever?

Curious because I was suffering from weird tingly/numbness and pain in my thigh over the summer which then progressed to horrible backpain. They thought I had a herniated disc and sent me for an MRI and discovered that I have a fatty mass in my spinal canal which had tethered my spinal cord and was causing the problems.

It is fairly common for people (about 10% of the population I think) to have weird spinal cord issues that they don't know about and usually are never a problem. For some people they just never know but some of us (we are so lucky...) start experiencing nerve damage.

If you have had that checked out and you are fine, then great and good luck figuring out what it is. If you haven't, it might be worth talking to a doctor about a possible neurological basis. Bladder, bowel and leg sensations are three of the common symptoms for neurological issues.

Good luck!

Re: Frequent Urination/Leg Pain

No I have not had any MRIs done at all. Thank you so much for this reply, I am seeing the doctor again Tuesday and I'll ask him about getting me in for a scan.

So what happened with you after they found it? Did you get surgery? Are you still having problems today?

Re: Frequent Urination/Leg Pain

No problem.

I had surgery and the pain wound up being a lot better. I am still in a lot of pain but physical therapy helps. I'm still in the time frame when we aren't sure what is going to be reversed and what isn't. Essentially, for me the surgery was to prevent further nerve damage. So it was to keep the symptoms from getting worse and hopefully also reverse some of them. In terms of reversal, I still have time before we know for sure what is permanent and what isn't.

Re: Frequent Urination/Leg Pain

Well that's good that you got it out before it got any worse.

I saw my urologist today and he did a Cystoscopy.
It was very painful and he said its usually not as painful as it was for me. So because of that he thinks I have Prostatitis.

He put me on antibiotics for 2 weeks with 1 refill, and if i don't get better he said to come back and that it is probably nerve related.

I think its nerve related personally but I'll see what happens.
