What causes a rush of warm feeling in the toes while urinating?

Hello, I'm an 80 year old man but this has been going on as long as I can remember. Sometimes, but not always, when I'm standing at the toilet waiting to urinate, as soon as the urine starts to flow, or a split second before, I feel a rush of warmth in my toes, both feet. I've looked for this on the web and a few people report it but apparently most men don't have this experience and don't know about it. I had surgery for hernia / hydrocele / undescended testicle when I was about 14 in case that has anything to do with it.

Antibiotics usually are the first line of treatment for urinary tract infections. Which drugs are prescribed and for how long depend on your health condition and the type of bacteria found in your urine?
Simple infection- Drugs commonly recommended for simple UTIs include:

-Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim, Septra, others)
-Fosfomycin (Monurol)
- Nitrofurantoin (Macrodantin, Macrobid)
- Cephalexin (Keflex)
- Ceftriaxone
- The group of antibiotic medicines known as fluoroquinolones — such as ciprofloxacin (Cipro), levofloxacin (Levaquin) and others — isn't commonly recommended for simple UTIs, as the risks of these medicines generally outweigh the benefits for treating uncomplicated UTIs. In some cases, such as a complicated UTI or kidney infection, your doctor might prescribe a fluoroquinolone medicine if no other treatment options exist.

Often, symptoms clear up within a few days of treatment. But you may need to continue antibiotics for a week or more. Take the entire course of antibiotics as prescribed.

For an uncomplicated UTI that occurs when you're otherwise healthy, your doctor may recommend a shorter course of treatment, such as taking an antibiotic for one to three days. But whether this short course of treatment is enough to treat your infection depends on your particular symptoms and medical history.

Your doctor may also prescribe a pain medication (analgesic) that numbs your bladder and urethra to relieve burning while urinating, but the pain usually is relieved soon after starting an antibiotic.

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

At L5-S1, I have a 6 mm left lateral disc protrusion that abuts the exiting nerve. I have a history of sciatica. However, I developed a new symptom. While sitting and typing on my computer, I noticed that my 5th toe on the right foot feels numb to the touch...Could this be a result of the L5-S1 disc protrusion or early signs of diabetes?

Greetings Doctor, I started to have right big toe pain during waling when i have to lift off the foot , started around Feb, and i figured out it was because of my intense walking on formal ill fitting shoes when i had to walk from/to office/Bus Stop In March 2014 : I consulted a podiatrist, i was given tablets for pain relief. ESR and Uric acid test results were normal ( taken during night shift) I was told to use flat insoles..pain persisted, and insoles became more flattened March to May ( 2 sessions) I consulted a physiotherapist who told it was flat feet, and told to use Session 1: Nike Training shoes, and then perform luke warm water dip with rock salt in it , and then Session 2: Use ice rubbing, pain persisted July : consulted another physio who told it was first pain at MPT and is currently doing Ultrasound, IRR and Tense (using electrodes for nerve stimulation), After the treatment i do not feel pain when i walk( but i cannot still bend bigtoe), but after sometime or when i get up in the morning , pain persists ESR and Uric acid test results were normal.( taken during day shift) I was told to use Insoles with medial Arch(yet to take) and a bunion splint( which was not available in the leading store). I could not properly bend my right big toe at all and it is depressing ! Please advise , Thank you in advance !

My feet/toes get so cold when I sit at night. The toes actually hurt and it takes a lot for me to get them warm. Even now when the weather is getting warmer my toes still get so cold. Then when they do get warm it almost feels like a rush of blood going into my feet and then they will get real warm. Could this be a circulation issue?

Hello, I was diagnosed with a hydrocele some time ago, but it never really bothered me (or very infrequently) so i never got it fixed. The past couple of days I have felt pain similar to the feeling of the hydrocele, but it is now constant.
