Urinary Disorders

Hip pain and urnitating

06/05/2008

Question:

I have severe RA in my most of my joints. This past month I have it realy bad in my left hip. Most of the pain is felt in the groin area. I know that this is goiong to sound strange but sinc my hip has been so bad I can`t tell when I need to go to the bathroom to urinate. I don`t know if it is the feeling to go or if it is from the pain from my hip. Besides going the same time each day how can I tell when I need to go to the bathroom? I told you it was strange. Thanks

Answer:

I would suggest that you be seen by your doctor to further evaluate why you are having trouble telling when you have to urinate. It is not unreasonable to go to the bathroom by your watch every few hours in the meantime.
