Post Covid/Long Covid: Anyone else experienced bladder issues?
Had Covid on Oct 1st. Most symptoms were gone after about 10 days but I still have a headache and heart palpitations.
Around Oct 21 I started getting bladder issues. I need to pee frequently, day and night, but very small ammounts, and I have bladder pain especially as it fills up (well, as it ”thinks” it fills up).
No bacteria found.
I did some research and found this can actually happen after Covid and is called ”Covid Bladder” or ”Covid Cystitis”. But this is not very known (yet) in my small country so I don’t get taken seriously.
Anyone else experienced bladder issues? I heard it can be treated with Loratidine and Famotidine but I have no idea what dosage?
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Post-COVID Recovery & COVID-19 Support Group.
I’ve had bladder issues since Oct 21. I noticed I woke up every night having to pee, and then it has kept getting worse. I constantly have to go, even tho there’s barely anything in there, both day and night, and I have really bad bladder pain, like it’s gonna explode.
Never had similar issues before, tho since June I have noticed it takes a little longer to empty my bladder than usual. That’s all.
Urine sample for infection came back negative.
I got Covid on Oct 1st. I have some post covid symptoms such as palpitations (ecg looked normal) and head ache. I’ve heard of Covid Bladder. Could that be it? Or related to my heart symptoms?
I also took one (just one) pill of Cytotek orally for stomach ulcer recently which gave me terrible cramps in my uterus, and my period looked very weird (even tho I’m on the pill). Could Cytotek have affected the bladder as well?
(I’m now on 20mg omeprazol instead for the ulcer.)
I should mention I suspect I’ve had mild endometrioses for 20 years, in case this makes a difference.
Also tapering off Diazepam atm. Was on 5mg and am now on 2,75mg. Could it be a withdrawal symptom?
Very worried about IC (chronic bladder pain).
yes..i have the same problem, the pressure of having to go is there but it always feels like my bladder never finishes emptying out, and the urge to go seems to always be there..there is a change in the bowels too..
@emmabell, did you ask your doctor about taking loratadine or famotidine or a pharmacist?
@beebee000, what has helped your bladder issues?
i also have a change in the bowels and it seems to relate somehow, i almost feel like my bladder and bowel has grown together!
Hi! In my country treatment of post Covid and these meds is unknown so I haven’t found a dr here who can help me sadly…
i've had every kind of allergy test out there including food, my back
looked like a road map and all,everything came back negative, i've tried
drugs for this or acid reflux and nothing worked..
I've had the same bladder problems don't need to go until it's so full it takes minutes and I have to sit, as a man, because standing that long or just getting to the bathroom starts the cycle. First the fatique and shortness of breath upon movement. The moment I exert a bit of energy like having to pick up something I dropped the sweat comes. A profuse strong smelling greasy sweat that will soak through two shirts my hoodie and even wet the inside of my coat. If I stand in one spot long enough I can make a
Puddle from what's dripped off my head and hair. I suffer from some things that prevent me from being able to drive and I can't be a passenger my anxiety is too out of control but I can no longer walk to the store let alone carry home the food I need to eat I don't leave my bed I have a blinding migraine all day every day and I was set to get my lungs checked because when the exertion of energy causes the sweating and loss of oxygen it's not just being out of breath it feels more like suffocating and then my lungs become so painful they feel like when you get road rash falling off a fast moving bike wearing shorts and then someone comes and rubs that ICY-HOT cream all over the wound. That's what my lungs feel like. I told doctor I needed this checked. He was ready to give me referral or schedule the appointment and when I mentioned it's long covid symptoms he said why don't we wait till I see you for referral. Then cancelled my next 4 appointments waiting 3 months or longer in between each one. They wouldn't even let anyone with cold symptoms in our hospital I didn't think they would tell me to go home from long covid symptoms too. So once again like in every health crisis I've had, our shit discriminatory judgemental and lazy doctors refuse to do anything about it. Like when they accused me of overdose when I had flesh eating virus and told me to make my death someone else's problem and get out of his emergency room.. and just like when I had a chest wall infection causing Inflammation so bad it blocked air to my right lung and was pressing against my heart the doctor told me I was lying about my symptoms and he's not entertaining any pill seekers today. This is because my med files show I am an addict. Being sober 10 years does not matter to anyone
They refuse to treat us too in New York State Adirondacks medical centers the discrimination is so bad I read the public complaints today one after another for pages and pages and this is a small area so small. When I was refused emergency treatment I complained to administration they asked if the patient died due to refusal of services. I guess that because it didn't kill me the doctor was within his rights. Bull shit
Yeah right!!! Are people somewhere in this world actually being seen and helped with their long covid cause I can't leave my bed anymore I'm positive my lungs are either full of clots or it's heart inflammation that will soon lead to failure. This is bullshit the flat out won't let us in the doors with any symptoms at all. It doesn't matter if it was 18 months ago you were positive for covid
I know what you mean can't ever seem to empty either both are irregular and sometimes can only get #1 out after going #2. At least for me.
