Hands hurt when urinating


    
Asked by greasefanatic (Male; 81; Prostrate cancer treated over 5 years ago without reoccurance. Last prostrate screening within the past few months.; Relevant drugs:Unsure ) on Sat 13, Sep 2008 09:37pm

My 81 year old grandfather recently began having strong pain is his hands when he urinates. The pain starts at his finger tips and goes up to his hands. He has no other symptoms and has already been tested for prostate cancer. What could this be?

Answer by Dr Paul S, MD  on Sun 14, Sep 2008 02:06am:

Hi there. This description of pain is most likely neuropathic, which means that the nerves are primarily involved. This may be due to stress, nutritional deficiencies (such as B vitamins) or the natural ageing process. Other causes would include electrolyte imbalances (calcium, potassium, magnesium) which can also be nutritional in origin. Supplementation and drugs like gabapentin or pregabalin would usually address neuropathic pain. Nevertheless, I would suggest that he have this evaluated by his doctors, possibly check the levels of electrolytes and vitamins in the blood. Regards.
