Hi,

 

We've tried several doctors including 2 pediatric urologists. He's had multiple UTI tests, a cystoscopy that all came back negative. The painful peeing goes away for a while and comes back. We are stumped. Has anyone else experienced this? I took a look at the archives, but couldn't find anything specific. We're considering some alternative medicine to help him since western medicine seems to have no answers. Any suggestions for urinary health? Herbs? Nutrition? All the medical sources(including the doctors) say diet has no effect, but honestly, we have a hard time believing this.

I don't have any suggestions, but you might want to post this in "The Case Against Circ" forum--- the people who might know are more likely to see it then.  Good luck!

What ever happened with this?  My son has this exact same thing.  He says it hurts to pee but not every time he pees.  I took him to the doctor a week ago and they tested his urine for a UTI but it was negative.  I don't know what to do.

We never found a medical reason. It seems to come and go. We think it might be because he is trying to pee with his butt cheeks squeezed tight. (Try it! It doesn't feel good) We noticed it seemed to lesson when we pointed this out to him. He started clenching his buttocks together after a poop accident (he had diarrhea)  while he was peeing several months ago. He's kind of a sensory sensitive guy so he got really freaked out about poop running down his leg and is fearful of it happening again. That's the only possible cause we have found. If that is not the case with your little guy, I'd check with a pediatric urologist. They weren't able to help us, but maybe his condition is different.
