Lower abdominal pain after urination. Cause and cure? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Hello. I have been having some cramping in my lower abdomen after urination. It started when i woke up yesterday morning with a cramp in my lower left abdomen. i am not pregnant.
i went to see my GP but he said there is no bacteria in my urine
he said he doesnt know what is happening
Are you still having these cramps?
Any dificulty / burning sensation while passing urine?
Any blood in the urine?
When are you expecting your period?
Have you had similar symptoms in the past?
The symptoms that you describe is most likely a renal colick
what is renal colick?
Things like a stone.
will it go away by itself?
This might be a case of renal stone.
It should disappear with improved hydration. So drink plenty of water.
Often the stones get flushed out in a day or two.
so cramping after urination is normal with this?
If the symptoms persist or if it becomes more severe, then you might need to get an ultrasound examination done.
will the stone eventually pass?
Stones less than 10mm in size are flushed out eventually.
is that painful?
Larger ones may take more time to get flushed or may not get out.
Such larger ones may need to be removed by other measures.
so if the pain disappears i will be ok? if not i should go back to the doctor?
The pain occurs when the stone is traveling down the ureter.
So as it passes out of the ureter into the bladder, the symptoms would disappear.
This might take a day or two to happen.
so by Friday if the symptoms still persist?
2 litres of water every day will increase the movements of the stone.
So drink as much as you can, a minimum of 2 litres in a day.
ok i will
Yes, I expect the stone to be out by this weekend.
ok. will it hurt coming out?\
Do consult a doctor for the test I mentioned if you persist to have the pain or if the severity of the pain increases.
No, there won't be any pain when the stone is out into your bladder.
Have you followed what I have suggested?
Do you have any other query?
when the stone passes through the bladder will it come out with urination?\
And that won't be painful.
After the stone reaches the bladder, you will be symptom free.
Do you have any other query?
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
