hello all,
i was wondering if any of you might be able to help me. i usually drink lots of water every day - about 3 litter. but lately i hardly pee and i don't even feel an urge to pee. this really worries me. does anyone know what could cause that?? also, during the day (not neccesarily while urinating, but just during the day) i sometimes for a few seconds feel a burn in my urethra, so maybe it's an infection? can an infection cause me not to pee? but it doesn't burn at all when i pee. it also seems i have a recto-vaginal fistula, and it probably includes the bladder too, that's how i feel it. could it be the cause of me not urinating??
another thing is that although i havn't changed my diet and eat exactly the same, lately i'm gaining weight like crazy - about 1/2 kg-1 kg every day!!! this is totally weird... do y'all think i'm retaining water??
i'm so upset and frustrated, i don't know much about this issue and feel helpless.. i hate going to the dr, cause they would probably won't find anything and tell me to go home.. what do i do? any input or advice will be greatly appreciated, thanks

Hello!!! When you push on your you legs does a indention stay in your leg? Also, gaining 1-2 kg a day deffinaly means somthing is up and you need to see your doc asap! It is not normal to gain that much weight and does have me think you are retaining water. Please do see your doctor. Fluid retention could be caused by many things but only a doctor will be able to diagnose and treat whatever might be going on with you!! Please let us know what the doc says if you go!!!

hi Amy :-)
thanks so much for your reply! no, i don't have edema, thank goodness! the whole thing started suddenly last sunday and went on till yesterday - every day of those days i gained 1/2-1 kg, but since yesterday things seem to be much better again and i started urinating again and already lost 1 kg. i would have expected edema to appear, but although i gained so much, i didn't notice edema on my legs.
i think the reason for this might be b/c i've been eating to much pickls lately  rolleyes   i decided to quit the pickles completely (havn't eaten any since wednesday) and things did get better. so maybe i don't need to see the dr after all?
