Is it normal for this to hurt? adult content

We were out of everything to drink today, so I filled an old coffee carafe with filtered water and sliced cucumber.

It was so good that I drank the whole thing. My bladder HURTS. Just from drinking so much water and having to pee.

Is that a bad sign? Does it need to be "worked out" or am I hurting myself?

Never know what I'm going to ask huh.

  • I chug a glass here and there but not a 12 cup coffee pot like today.

  • Your kidneys are having to process a lot more liquid than usual. Did you drink it all at the same time?

  • No. From 2 to 6. My kidneys can make my bladder hurt? I had kidney failure when I was 4

  • Cucumbers are a diuretic...they increase urination and stimulate the kidneys into better removal of uric acid. So your urine could just have a higher uric acid content... that might be the cause. Drink some plain water maybe to help get your "balance" back...
