Neurological issue ??

Hello,

I had an accident where I fell backwards from a height of 6 feet, I landed on my right side/bottom/right wrist,

I was taken to hospital with a broken wrist, lower back pain, neck pain,

Mri showed nothing wrong with my spine, I went into acute urinary retention and was catheterized a few hours after my fall

No one seems to know what caused my AUR and I want to know if the trauma of a heavy fall from 6 feet could cause AUR even though the MRI didn't detect spinal damage.

Thanks [smile]

    Hi,

    Look into getting a CT scan and find out if have lost any CSF, cerebral spinal fluid.

      Hi Michael

      Thanks for taking the time to reply to me!

      My accident was 2 years o so I don't think the ct scan would help at this stage,

      I don't have Acute Urine Retention any more it only lasted 2 weeks, But its the cause of the AUR I would like help with, such as could the shock/pain of a hard fall backwards onto concrete cause AUR, like could it have shook my nervous system up to cause this,

      Any more suggestions would be great smile

      Thanks

    Hi leesteuk,

    I can only tell you that my CSF leak was caused by me bumping my head very hard on the interior roof of a van.

    I'm not sure if your situation could be similarYou may have a CSF leak from the fall, I would guess that it is possible?
