I've been doing ok lately but this is freaking me out. Last night I went to pee and I had a weird sensation of burning in my pelvic area. It's not a stinging burning from peeing it's a sensation of burning in my bladder. When I first start peeing it seems ok BUT when my bladder gets empty I feel a burning sensation. It's been happening all day today

I'm really scared cause I read BLADDER CANCER symptom. When I first start peeing it feels fine it's only after my bladder is empty that I feel it.

Anyone????

:( No one has any comforting words of assurance. I'm freaking out here and thinking the worst.

I have had this issue off and on.
No more now that I take alpha blocker meds.
It has more to do with slight oab and us with anxiety suffer from fear that can cause those bladder muscles to strain causing bladder discomfort.
If you have bladder cancer the first sign is 90%+ of the time is blood in the urine
And not just once.
Frequent urination is a low low symptom and its usually when disease is advanced in the bladder.
Also its rare in women.

I've gotten that off and on for years with no explanation. Urologist found nothing when I went in with blood in my pee; urine cultures are negative for infection. Just one of those random things in my case.

The only thing I would say is if it persists, get a test done for a UTI, because they're easiest to treat when you start early.

Hello. I have been struggling with something like this, maybe the same thing. About two weeks ago I went to the bathroom before bed, just like usual. After my urine stream stopped, I got burning sensation like a UTI was coming on or like I had gotten soap in that area. The burning felt more in the urethral area, not in the bladder. The burning was very sudden, and not over the course of a few hours. The burning was not due to intercourse or anything like that. It continued through the weekend off and on. I pounded water and took cranberry pills and the OTC urinary pain medicine. Nothing helped. The next weekday I called my primary doc and she got a urine sample. Trace blood was the only thing to come back on the general dipstick test. At the diagnostic lab, no blood was present and all was normal. My urine was cultured. It also came back normal. I had an X-ray to check for kidney stones, and nothing came back on that. Women’s panel was also done to test for yeast infections and sti, which all came back clear. I’m still having the burning issue. It’s all the time now that it’s on my mind. I am not sure if it’s real or imagined. It was definitely real that first night.

I am 40 and I believe I am in perimenopause. I have vaginal dryness, my cervical mucus has changed in a way such that I don’t think I could get pregnant easily. It’s not the “egg white” consistency. My periods are somewhat lighter. I use to be a very heavy bleeder. My vagina is just generally confused...gets engorged for no reason and then goes away. I also have spells when I will get super hot for about 20-30 seconds and then it goes away.
All that is to say, I am wondering if my burning is due to vaginal atrophy which can occur because of perimenopause. I am seeing my primary for my annual check up on Wednesday. I will address all of this with her.
Are you still having issues?

I know this post is from a while back and I certainly hope you are feeling better. I wanted to offer some words of comfort and some of my experience to hopefully ease your anxiety. I had extreme bladder pain and burning while urinating for about 8 months. When it first happened I thought I had a UTI but even after antibiotics the feeling persisted. I went to my primary health doctor several times as well as the urologist and even the emergency room. No one had answers for me. It was extremely frustrated and all I wanted was to feel comfortable and relaxed. It took a huge toll on my confidence and I had anxiety over the unknown every day. After several consultations and tests I still had no answers. I was taking several medications that were supposed to help but only seemed to make it worse. Eventually I decided to stop taking my birth control pill to see if anything would change. Within the next few weeks I began to feel better. It may have been the pills or psychological but either way I started to feel better. I still have flare ups when I get stressed but I promise it gets better. I hope you are getting the love and encouragement you need. I know it can be hard when others around you don’t understand health anxiety and the mental toll it takes. Stay strong and take it a day at a time. I am sending you lots of good energy.

I’m not a woman, but, my mother has had several UTIs over the last few months. It turns out, as women age, they have fewer symptoms, often times they are not even aware of an infection. You can grab a test kit from a pharmacy and it will tell you if there’s an infection. If so, your doctor will still likely want to test for it, but, at least you’ll know. Until then, drink plenty of fluids, including cranberry juice.
