Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Your habit of holding back urination risks causing stone formation in the urinary tract, including in the kidneys or bladder. The presence of stones in the urinary tract can make you feel pain. This pain can be caused by stones irritating the walls of your urinary tract. It could also cause pain due to hydronephrosis, which is kidney swelling caused by the accumulation of urine in it. Pain can be felt especially around the lower abdomen, lower back, groin, to the genitals. This pain can also be accompanied by changes in urine (reddish, cloudy, strong odor), nausea, vomiting, frequent urination, fever, chills, and small volumes of urination.
Stones in the urinary tract are not caused by a single factor, but a combination of various factors, including the habit of holding back urination, previous history of urinary tract stones, dehydration, a diet high in protein, salt and sugar, obesity, having digestive disorders, or other diseases, such as cystinuria, hyperparathyroidism, urinary tract infections, drug side effects, and so on.
In addition to urinary tract stones, it can also be pain in the left abdomen to the lower back that you feel is triggered by other causes, for example:
Urinary tract infection Bladder cancer Overactive bladder Constipation (constipation) Irritable bowel syndrome Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction) Pre menstrual syndrome Endometriosis (growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus) Ovarian cysts (fluid-filled sac in the ovaries due to impaired egg maturation) Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the womb) Hernia (sticking out of the intestines due to weakening of the abdominal wall), etc. Are there any other symptoms you experience besides pain and aches?
If the pain is very disturbing, you should get it checked directly to the doctor. Through a physical examination, doctors generally can identify the possibility of stones in the urinary tract or other diseases. If necessary, the doctor will recommend that you undergo additional tests, for example urine tests, X-rays, ultrasound, and so on. It is also possible that you will be referred to the right specialist doctor for complete treatment.
In the meantime, stop your habit of holding back urination. If you are afraid to pee yourself outside the house, ask a friend or relative to accompany you. Drink more than 2 to 3 liters a day, but drink less at bedtime. Compress the painful stomach and lower back using warm water while taking pain medications, for example paracetamol. Also limit some of the following foods:
Reduce grams Reduce animal protein Reduce consumption of foods that contain lots of oxalates, such as sweet potatoes, beans, tea, chocolate, black pepper, soybeans and processed products
