Effect Of Bladder Infections On The Taste Of Urinating Continuously?
Last February I had a urinary track infection (UTI) and recovered after being given antibiotics. After that in June I thought the UTI was back again but the lab confirmation there were no bacteria, so it could be overactive bladder (OAB) after knowing the history of food and drink diuretics at that time. August and September my OAB relapsed again. But after the therapy reduced the consumption of food and drinks are diuretic after the events above and so on until now, thank God it has never happened again.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Overeactive bladder is a disruption in the function of urine storage in the bladder which causes a sudden desire to urinate that is less able to be held by the sufferer.
Causes of overeactive bladder include spinal cord disorders, nerve disorders in Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and stroke, use of certain drugs, as well as in conditions of infection in the bladder.
When there is a bladder infection, the bacteria that cause the infection colonize and can release a number of toxins. This causes the bladder wall muscles to become irritated and become inflamed. Bladder muscle muscles that normally begin to contract if the urine volume reaches 150-200 cc to cause urinary sensation, but in inflammatory conditions it becomes more susceptible to sensitization so that even in the urine volume that does not have much bladder muscle muscles send signals to the brain that is perceived as a sensation to urinate.
Conditions of urinary tract infections can also trigger a state of preexisting overeactive bladder with a mechanism similar to the above.
So, hopefully it can be useful
