Urologist - Abdominal Cramps after Urinating in the Morning

Customer Question

When urinating in the morning after all night without going to the restroom I feel strong pain (cramps-like) in the abdomen - as if bladder filled up and upon deflating it causes pain. Then the pain suddenly disappears and I do not feel it again until the next morning. If I urinate during the night the pain does not occur. There is no blood in the urine. What could be the cause?

Well, pain in urination in morning along with cramping pain in abdomen, urinary hesitancy can be due to -Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. It results in painful urination in morning and may also lead to a weak urine stream.

Other possibility can be-Prostatitis. This causes swelling and inflammation of the prostate gland.
To make a diagnose, you will be requiring few tests, which includes-

Urine test , semen test, Ultrasound of seminal vesicle, Digital Rectal Examination (DRE).

Also Urine Flow Study may be advised.

My opinion is that you should see Urologist , for tests, and management.

Good luck and take care.

Kindest Regards

I have no pain when urinating and I have no weak urine stream - those are not symptoms I described.

 

I only have a cramp-like pain as if my BLADDER was swelling to contain the urine overnight - perhaps putting stress on the walls of the bladder while expanding? - and then deflating upon urinating

I see that you have opted out Dr. Robert. Before answering your question, i need to ask few questions-

Do you any problem with erection.
Do you have to wake up in night to urinate?
Since how many days, you have these symptoms.

Thank you.

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Please be patient for a response as I may be in the OR or driving, but will get back to you ASAP.

 

Hi there,

 

I am a Urologist who trained and practices in the USA. Your symptoms sound like you are having a bladder spasm. However, this is odd to happen after you urinate. It certainly may be due to an intense contraction from an overly distended bladder throughout he night. You should probably see a urologist to do an ultrasound on your bladder after you are done urinating to see if you are able to empty your bladder completely. You'll need a prostate exam done to see if an enlarged prostate may be a cause of your symptoms. You should be screened for diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, and congestive heart failure as these diseases can cause urine overproduction at night. You may need to be started on meds for your prostate such as tamsulosin. Meds like Toviaz can be prescribed to stop bladder spasms. But the botXXXXX XXXXXne if, you need to be evaluated by a urologist to get to the bottom of this. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.
