Symptoms of Neurogenic Bladder

In addition to the problems mentioned above, other symptoms of neurogenic bladder are:

  • A dribbling urinary stream
  • Urinary urgency
  • Inability to urinate or straining during urination
  • Painful urination (dysuria)
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by urine being held too long in the bladder; UTI with fever is a sign of potential severe kidney infection (pyelonephritis) that can cause permanent kidney damage
  • Urinary tract stones caused by the stoppage of urine flow and/or infection
  • Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) or backup of urine from the bladder to the kidney(s) (a way of releasing pressure in the bladder when it doesn’t empty itself); this can be dangerous if a person as a UTI because the infected urine is sent back to kidneys, which can cause kidney infection
