  • Hi @Vicki51, welcome to the Online Community! It's lovely to have you here.

    I see that you have arthritis of the spine and hip and are experiencing bladder problems.

    I found this information from Versus Arthritis' page on arthritis of the spine:

    "Let your doctor know urgently if you:

    • Have trouble going for a wee, or feel like you need a wee when you don’t
    • Lose control of your bladder or bowel – the organs that control wee and poo
    • Have feelings of numbness or tingling around your genitals or bottom
    • Lose power in your legs
    • Feel unwell – like having a fever or sweating."

    Whether or not this issue is related to your arthritis I do hope you'll consider seeing your GP about it.

    Please do keep us updated, and I hope you enjoy your time in the Online Community.

    Best wishes, Sarah (moderator)
