Abdominal pain after holding back urine. Is that serious?

I was having an urge to urinate while i was driving so i had to hold on and after about 20 minutes i started having abdominal pain and i reached home after 10 minutes and went to pee. While urinating the abdominal pain was more severe and i had to lay down on bed with a severe abdominal pain and it went away after few minutes... what should i do? Is it serious or am i having any health issues?

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have pain in abdomen due to holding on urination for a long time.

This isnormal to have pain on holding urination when bladder is full., because of inhibited bladder muscle contraction .

In such a situation just relax for 10 -15 minutes and try to pass urine without straining the abdomen.

Thanks for writing in to us.

Some people with a distended bladder will experience severe pain in the lower abdominal area, caused by the bladder remaining full for a long period of time. The pain will diminish as soon as the bladder is emptied, but bladder and urinary tract infections could occur as a complication.

If it has happened only once, do not get worried. Just make sure you dont hold your urine frequently because that can cause infection and bladder problems.

Hope this helps
