    Default PLEASE HELP Baby boy pain when peeing.

    My son isa bit over 4 and half months old. He's been crying and being fussy before he needs to wee. Some times its worse than others. He'll be fussy and wriggley and I'll take his nappy off and he'll wee right away, sometimes his penis will balloon but not always. Other times he'll be quite upset and. Crying and it'll take a bit for it to come out. It varys alot with each time,and doesn't always happenen each wee. It'll sometimes wake him from his sleep. This morning it was really bad. His nappy was barely wet after a sleep from 9 till 5. He woke up screaming, like a blood curdling scream obvious pain. I stripped him down, nothing. Tried to calm him, nothing. He did a few drops. Put him in warm bath, nothing. Sat down to call my husband, and had him with his knees to his chest and he did the biggest wee. And immediately calmed.

    This has been going on for a while. Been to emergency for it before and they said nothing. So thought I'd just been making to much of it. It's been happening since then still. And when it's not over tiredness, and other culprits it's wee.

    After this morning I went back to emergency.

    They basicly said he's growing well and it all looks fine. No infection etc. And said she doubts it's to do with his wee seeing as it doesn't happen every time he wees. But each time he's like it, it does up being a wee. She didn't believe me. I know the difference between his grumpy cry, and the scream he did this morning. I hate being made to feel like an idiot over this. Especially after it was so evident that it was to do with his wee, this morning.

    Has anyone else had this happen to their baby. I really need help, he's in pain when it happens. Please help.

    I also say urine infection. But did they test his urine?? If they didnt go back to hospital and make them do a test. Poor baby I hope he gets better soon. No wet nappy in that big stretch of time isnt good. Im suprised no doctor is taking you seriously.. go to emergency again

    I would take him to your GP, I have found GP is more likely to refer you on to paediatrician, specialist etc (our oldest has several medical issues) whereas emergency nurses/drs tend to deal with what they can see and treat immediately.

    You may get more answers from the GP.

    Goodluck.

    Sorry. I forgot to say. They did a urine test but all was normal. And also I went to the docs with him about3 weeks ago. She refered us to paed. And the only appt we could get was two weeks from today. After this morning however, it was terrible, so I knew the paeds are based at the hospital so wanted them to look. The girl that came said her 'bosses' which is who we'll see at appt. So I don't know if she was even one.

    I got the whole how's my mental health speech, and keep an eye on it if I have thoughts of hurting myself or some one else. I was furious. She basicly said no. It can't be related to his wee because it doesn't happen ever time. And that babies get restless and they cry for no apparent reason.

    Now I may just be a new mum of four months, but I can tell the difference between a pain scream, and his grumpy. I have been closely monitoring it when it happens and it always ends with a wee, and with that,an instantly happy baby. I know it sounds odd that it's not every wee. But this is what it is.

    Will have to really push it at the appt.

    We may have to look elsewhere in a big town. Am not happy.

    Even after the whole night with a practicaly dry nappy, and screams of pain. And then a giant wee. And a calm baby. She says,no, it's unrelated.

    Poor bub. Is he drinking enough? I'd be concerned if his nappy wasn't very wet after 8 hrs

    id be going back and asking them to do an ultrasound of his bladder to check there isn't a blockage of some sort.. also can you video him when hes struggling to wee etc so you can show them exactly what happens? it doesn't sound normal and yes you are his mum and you know the different cries.. Is there another hospital you could go to? Could you hubby go with you and back you up with what happens? I understand your frustration and how they go on about your mental health- just remember they are only doing their job and they have to ask but yes I know how annoying it all can be.... I hope it gets resolved soon.. best wishes

    Its such a horrible feeling when no one listens to you
    Could you maybe ring the paed receptionist and explain your desperation and ask if there's any cancellations you could go in? Maybe the paed would be sympathetic and squeeze you in somewhere?
