It seems to only happen if I have to hold on a while before I can empty my bladder.
It happens 2 or 3 times a week. About 30 seconds after I am finished it goes away. It starts on the top inside of my arm and goes down to my fingers. It is a real strong sensation but it does go away shortly.
I have had this for 3 or 4 years. I have had a hysterectomy and a bladder lift and have never had any problems with either. I am in my 60's with basically good health.
I can't see some logical relation between urination and tingling sensations in your arms and hands.
These tingling sensations are known as parasthesia (abnormal sensation on the skin that has no apparent physical cause).
Paresthesia can be due to different causes and conditions.
First, it could be due to remaining in the same seated or standing position for a long time.
Lack of blood supply to the area, pressure on the spinal nerve due to herniated disc, hypothyroidism, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, vitamins deficiency, side effects of drugs, and others conditions, are all possible causes.
See your physician!
This could be something harmless or it can be a sign of something that needs medical attention.
UTI or Bladder Infections related to tingling arms?
I am experiencing the same symptoms, but only for the past two days, with what I believe is a UTI or bladder infection. I am going to a walk-in clinic in the morning to have urine sample taken/tested but wondered why I am getting the tingling/burning sensation especially in my right arm down to my fingers, and just a bit on the left side too. I have that burning sensation near the urethra with tingling while I am emptying my bladder, but this extension to the arm is weird. I work for a chiropractor...it is definitely not a pinched nerve in my case...it seems directly related to having just urinated and then it goes away rather quickly. Feels like it radiates from my bladder up through my hip and right side to my arm. So bizarre.
pain and tingling in my arms when I urinate during a UTI
This happens to me too and often is the first sign I have a UTI. I get pain radiating down both my arms and into my hands when I urinate and have a UTI. It is real pain. My doctor laughed at me when I told her, and she said it was unrelated, but I know for sure it is not. This has been happening to me for about 6 years. It is frustrating because nobody can give me an answer to why this might happen. I wish someone could give me an answer! Today it started again. That is why I am once again searching on line for an answer. I was glad to see there are people out there who know what I am talking about!
I know what you're talking about. I get strong pain in my hands, feet, and upper back- mostly my hands. I would think it's some type of nerve pain traveling from the bladder??? Has anyone else received an answer from their doctor?
I too have the pain in my fingertips when I am having episodes of pain during urination. sometimes I feel like the pain in my fingers is worse than the urination pain itself. My urologist said he had never heard of pain in fingers due to urinary pain. However, it only occurs with me when urination stings--either from UTI of sometimes sexual activity. One thing I do know is that they coincide like clockwork!!!
Sometimes I think that my urine is to acidic and causing irritations to my skin and tissues. I sometimes pour a box of baking soda in the tub with a few inches of water and get some relief. I also use Rephresh a ph balancer found in the femine hygiene aisle; I use it externally to hopefully reduce the stinging during urination.
As far as why the fingers hurt, I have no ides. I do know that if I reduce the urination burning the fingers seem to hurt less. I too would love to know why the two go hand in hand.
I'm going through the hand pain right now and I have just started on meds for my current bladder infection. I know the pain is a result of the UTI - yesterday I had no pain and no UTI - today I have a UTI and pain in my hands. We are not crazy...and doctors apparently don't know everything!! I just live with it - once the UTI is cleared up, the pain is gone.
