Full Bladder

Full Bladder - a condition when the bladder becomes filled with urine and becomes filled to capacity. This usually results from holding urine for a long time, or an inability to urinate, which is called Anuria.

Full Bladder Considerations

In cases of severely full bladders, the organ can become so extended that it becomes a distended bladder and can be seen as a protruding bulge through the skin on the lower part of the stomach. Once it is filled with urine, people start having tingling sensations. If they do not urinate, the accumulation of urine inside the bladder starts to cause a sharper pain until the person is forced to relieve themselves.

Sometimes the bladder becomes full because of problems within the urinary tract like Urinary Tract Infections or something more severe that causes either inability to urinate or a feeling of urinary urgency without actually having to go to the restroom.

To properly diagnose infection or any other internal cause of a bladder problems, a number of different urine tests called Urinalysis are available at home or in a doctors office.

Full Bladder at Night

At night our metabolism, nerve function, and major organ function slow down. After a full nights sleep, the bladder usually fills up and people tend to feel the urge to urinate in the mornings when they wake up or in the middle of the night if the bladder is very full. People who wake up frequently to urinate may be experiencing a condition called nocturia.

If you are experiencing a full bladder and an urge to urinate in the morning, you may see orange pee. Orange urine in the mornings is a relatively common occurrence because overnight, the urine had time to mix with the other chemicals that the body is trying to remove as waste. The chemicals may be common or unusual in cases of metabolic problems or other reasons for poor health. The most common chemical in the urine, and the one which creates the appearance of the typical yellow urine is Urobilin.

Keeping The Bladder Empty

One danger of holding urine and not relieving yourself when your body sends signals for you to urinate is that the different bacteria and chemicals that your body needed to excrete, actually stay in the body longer. Imagine the bacteria mixing and multiplying right inside your bladder as your kidneys filter more and more of the waste materials that need to be removed. Allowing the bacteria to multiply inside your bladder can cause inflammation and certain Urinary Tract Infections so be very careful and think twice before you hold in your pee.
