Urinary Disorders

Sneezing while urinating



I recently sneezed while I was urinating. It was painful when it happened and now it is very painful whenever I urinate. It continues to hurt for a while after. What could have happened? Is there anything I can do to help this? Could it be serious?


I don`t have an answer for you.  I suggest you consult with your physician who can examine you, check a urine specimen and likely provide you with an answer.  I doubt this is a serious problem and may simply be a slight muscle strain.
