    Urine retention and Foot/Hand burning

    I'm trying to see if there's a connection between incomplete emptying of the bladder and peripheral symptoms.

    Suprapubic discomfort
    Low flow rate and output (frequency is normal)
    Some difficulty starting flow
    Pain on soles of feet when standing still (always worst later in the day)
    Some times one foot gets red and the other is normal
    Mild redness and burning of the palms
    Low platetet count - 110

    History:
    -Calf muscle tear and massage over tibial nerve
    - Dysuria
    - Bilateral testicular pain ( 6 weeks)
    - 30 days of antibiotics without proof of infection
    - Rectal discomfort (may or may not be related)

    Is this some form of neuropathy? Nerve conduction studies were normal. Heat is an aggravating factor. Exercise improves circulation. I had a stinging pain near the metarsal region at the beginning.

    Localized entrapment?
    Pudendal neuralgia?

    Other theories: Entrapment? Poster

    I think there is a good chance you have peripheral neuropathy associated with a possible autoimmune disorder. I would see your Dr and ask to have the following tests for finding the cause of it. Vit B12, folic acid levels, TSH, ANA, HbA1C. The red discoloration in foot may be Raynaud's, and coupled with low platellets, red palms, could suggest an autoimmune disorder. This can be checked by the ANA, plus a sed rate, CRP, urine, CBC, initially, then follow up of any leads. The first set of tests checks the most common causes of PN- vitamin defiency, low thyroid, autoimmune, diabetes. Alcohol in excess can cause PN too, if the history fits.
