Customer Question

Right after giving birth to my second child, I have not been able to pee properly. Meaning, my bladder does not signal my brain that my bladder is full and needs to be drained. Therefore, i can go hours upon hours or damn near all day without having the urge to go pee. So this caused me to only drain my main vein approximately 2 times a day maybe 3, if and only if, i remind myself to go urinate. When i am able to pee it takes me several minutes to get a stream started. However, when I finally pee it's dark majority of the time and reeks really bad, such as the smell of sitting piss for a year or more. In addition, when I am finishing up my urination ends with a farting noise but made of foamy bubbles!!! Unfortunately I am unable to control this which is embarrassing.
For 3 years now I have left these symptoms untreated which has caused additional complications in my opinion. Loss of feeling inmmy fingertips, tingling sensayions in hands, numbmess, burning, blisters into very dry deterirating skin. This all began last summer and has progressed rapidly since then til now. It effects my daily lifestyle extremely. I am a business owner, full time student and a full time mother of two!!!!
Because of my failure to acquire insurance in order to attain a family physician, I am concerned for my health. During both labors I was Catherized due to being induced because my body held too much water. I believe that is when my problems began. Bladder retention to kidney fault I'm afraid. Or diabetic neuropathy maybe? Diabetes run on both sides of family.
Hopefully I can receive some answers here
Thank you

How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Does anything make your symptoms better or worse? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any other family medical history? Is your stress increased since last summer?

You could have damages in the pelvic nerves when you gave birth. But other symptoms are not related. Multiple sclerosis could explain all your symptoms. You should see a neurologist to have exam and imaging studies such as MRI if necessary.
