Have your bladder issues ever caused strange symptoms outside the bladder area?

For those of you who have MS-related bladder problems: Besides burning or pain while peeing, urine retention, urgency, and frequency, have your bladder issues ever caused strange symptoms outside the bladder area? Example: auditory hallucinations, tinnitus, zaps, jerks, limb weakness, etc.

  1. Kim, that's a good question! Limb weakness certainly, but I'm pretty sure my tinnitus came about as a side effect of voltaren, a pain medication my neurologist prescribed for fibromyalgia. I'm just grateful I worked with a wonderful neuro-urologist for years and years. I was his favorite patient and he was my favorite specialist! He prescribed Methenamine Hippurate, a prophylactic that has enabled me to stay a step ahead of UTIs for a long time. Now if only I'd invested in POISE stock twenty years ago!
    Fondly, Therry

    1. Humm, Therry bladder problems are my newest symptom, frequently and urgently, the odd symptom that I get, is when I can feel that my bladder is full I get a sharp pain in my toes feet hands & arms itfeels as if there is a tiny rod going through my feet after my hands up to my arms doesn't always happen daily but I get this feeling once a week.
