I don't feel pain and now, this...

years ago, I had a bladder infection - the only reason, I knew something was wrong is that I was pasing blood in my urine. I was pregnate at the time. So, I freaked out.
Next time, I realized the going to the restroom more often, ect. NO pain but went and they did the test and it came back with blood in my urine - bladder infection.
Years later, I kept getting dizzy. I felt the coldness and fluid in my ears, ect. Still No pain. I was at the OBGYN for a yearly exam - she asked if there was anything else. So I mentioned the dizzy spells - she checked and both my ears were ifected.
Now, I don't know if I have a bladder infection or not, but I'm having problems with holding my urine. I'm only 36. (now, that I type that - I don't feel so young) I looked up doing the exercises - I can't. I know, its a muscle and I have to re-build it, I guess.
Any other suggestions? Am I too young for this? Is this normail? I have three children, ages 17, 12 and 10.

  • Some bladder weakness is pretty common and usually will resolve on its own. (I'm 45 and have 6 kids). Since you have a history of not feeling pain, I'd suggest you have a full check-up to rule out some other cause, but if there's no infections anywhere, I wouldn't worry too much. People talk about doing those "kegel" exercises, but I've never really mastered that. I think it's just kinda like when you try hard not to pee while you sneeze. That's the muscle squeeze you're supposed to do. Good luck!

  • By exercises are you talking about Keagles? Perhaps you are doing thewm incorrectly? I hate them they make me nauseated, but if you get some benway (sp?) balls you can teach yourself how to properly do that exercise. GL mama.

  • I would ask your dr again. I get bladder infections pretty easily. Have my entire life. I've never felt pain with them either.
