Hello doctor,

Just two days back I suddenly experienced an upset stomach with just a semi-solid consistency of stool. However a day later, I found that I had the urge to pee more often than usual immediately after emptying my bladder. I am 40 years old and my last period was a month back. I am 5'3" and weigh 70 kg. I have no pain at all while urinating. However, this sudden new symptom has caused me to be very anxious. I also have some PMS symptoms like muscle ache and so on. Could you please advise doctor?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Sometimes urine symptoms can happen whenever there is altered stool pattern. If there is any problem in stool passage, it may reflect as a burning sensation or frequency of urine as the nerve supply to both areas is same. In case there is no fever, and stomach is still upset, you can start with a probiotic like Econorm sachet twice a day for three days.

If symptoms persist beyond 2 to 3 days, then get urine routine test and an ultrasound KUB and revert. A short course of antibiotic like Nitrofurantoin 100 mg twice a day for three days and Solifenacin 5 mg once a day for five days can be started after consultation with your GP.
