Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Robaxin is not associated with UTI nor with decreased urinary frequency. If you are taking other drugs that are nephrotoxic then urinalysis and renal function tests can be advised.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

hi. i have a toddler he is almost 3, he just got his endoscopy done because he had unexplained belly pains, often hiccups (since he was born on and off hiccups) and since 2 months or so now almost every day those strange rashes mostly groin area and down the legs. last friday his lower lip swoll up and both his feet too, big swelling on right wrist and body rashes, not itchy, more blotchy and with the endoscopy we found out his one stomach muscle is weak and sore around and his esophagus is inflamed. doc took biopsy from the esophagus tissue. now we have to wait... he also did blood tests like C1 Inhibitor , C3 und C4, CBC, sedm.rate, etc. My son is very allergic that we know since almost a year. last year he had 2 months unexplained diarrhea , then we did allergy testing, he is allergic to rice, egg whites, molds, trees etc a lot of stuff which we avoid as much as we can. but he never had those strange rashes. our GI doc thinks he could have HANE Hereditary Angioneurotic Edema. What is your oppinion? the eosophils in blood tests always evlevated, low lymphocytes etc. and he sometimes complaines that eating cereals (like cheerios chocolate / there is no rice in it) hurts him in his throat or esophagus. and than he just dont eat it. and since he was born he has a noice when he breathes, not every day, but a lot. please answer. thanks so much. god bless u!

i was admitted to the hospital Tuesday with a high fever and bladder problems. My bladder wasn t emptying. I spent 3 days in the hospital. I left with a Foley. Shortly after I returned home it started leaking and I returned to have that fixed. Yesterday, I again had problems; I was passing more blood than urine and my blood pressure was 210/? I went back to ER and they drained almost a liter of urine from my bladder.Today I awakened around 7 and drained about 700 ml s. I currently have 100 ml in the bag. I am passing urine but it is not flowing into the tube or the bag since 10 or so. Where is the urine going?
