smiles Posted May 29, 2006 Report Share Posted May 29, 2006 Have had 3 bladder infections in the last 14 months. No typical infection symptoms. For me, convulsions and almost passing out spells (slurred speech, can't walk straight, weak to the point I can't feed myself after convulsions) is how I know I have an infection. I got my last bladder infection 3 weeks ago. As a fluke, 2 weeks ago an ER doc cathed me and got 1050 ccs of urine out of my bladder and said that obviously my recent convulsions were due to bladder retention and probably automonic (due to my dysautonomia). He said 1050 ccs was like being 4 1/2 months pregnant. 2 days later after convulsions began again, the uro. office pulled 750 ccs out of my bladder shortly after I used the bathroom. New theory now is that my convulsions are from urinary retention and not infections. My cardiologist's nurse says that it is probably not just autonomic--there must be something else going on. I will have the catheter till my cystoscope on June 5. Anyone else have this problem and is it related to dysautonomia? I never had a bladder infection in my life till I got sick 1 1/2 years ago. I've never been the same since. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
