    Hi,

    Depending on which levels of the cervical spine are causing cs the organs and nerves below that level may be affected. I have cs at levels c4,5,, 6,7 and problems with my bladder as well as neck,shoulders,arms and legs. My bladder problem is caused by the bladder spincter (on/off switch)involuntary spasmming causing difficulty urinating.

    Mike,

    Hi,

    I have to take Tamsiloson, it relaxes the bladder sphincter enabling me to urinate.Unfortuneatly, a big side effect is nasal congestion, have to breathe through mouth continuously day and night, so I only take Tamsiloson every other day. Urinate one day breathe the next.

    You are lucky your not affected with your c/s. I have bone spurs protruding into spinal cord at levels c4567.

    Mike.
