My mother is a type 2 diabetic. In the past several months she has experienced problems and pain urinating. She feels she has to "go" every 20 minutes, when very little actually eliminates. Also, during the time she is attemping to urinate her hands are tingling and the pain in her jaw is excruciating. This pain leaves her crying. We have been to the doctor a few months ago and the doctor didn't know what it was,but treated it as a UTI. We ending up not filling the prescription because the symptoms come and go. It's back again. She has had the symptoms for 1 1/2 weeks. Her appt. is tomorrow with the same doctor. We don't know where to turn. She is 76 yrs. old.UTI

  • has she had an ob/gyn visit lately? if she has not had a hysterectomy- the urinating could be from fybriods, cysts, bockage, scar tissue or inflamation, etc. an ultrasound would be a good idea too. also- these things and other growths can grow near/in the bladder and cause problems. good luck.
