Urge to urinate and a bit sore lower belly - too much protein?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 08, 2012 at 12:44 AM

Since I started to eat Paleo, I feel sore lower belly quite often, usually after eating. It's like I drinked too much and I need to pee soon, but I don't. Maybe it's quite the opposite - I don't drink enough and that's why I feel sore, but I really think it hasn't changed and it started with my bigger intake of fat and protein. I have beef or fish almost every day and I have eggs and bacon every morning, I eat dairy (cheese and greek yogurt). I try not to take too much proteins and eat more fat. I also have heaps of veggies in my every meal.

28 years old woman, 178 cm, 84 kgs - I am bit overweight, would like to lose some kgs of fat which I gained by eating sweets, but I have bad relationship with food - I just "have to eat all the time" so I try to eat satying meals and avoid sweets (lowcarb).

Sorry for my english, not my language ;)

Thanks, Majka

Agreed. Pelvic soreness and urge to urinate could be signs of an infection. A gynecologist or doctor visit is the first thing I would do.

Buy some pH test strips, and test the acidity of your urine. In certain cases (e.g. too much protein) urine can become more acidic, and this can cause a burning/sore sensation. Make sure that you drink enough water, this is especially important when one increases their protein intake.

I'm pretty sure it's not bladder infection, because I used to have them quite often and it feels different. This doesn't really hurt, it's just... I don't know, I think it has to be because I went low-carb few days ago and maybe I am just losing lot of water... Like I've read in some posts here. I feel much more energy and decided also to stop drinking coffee.

Well I will give it few days and see if I am not just a bit cold, maybe you're right. Anyway thanks for your time and I'll let you know how it goes :))

Agree that the first thing to check is whether it is a UTI.

Also, I noted you said, "I also have heaps of veggies" -- Was this the same as before you started down the paleo path? Significant increase in fiber can result in severe cramping and bloating -- a little different than your symptoms, but not too far off...

Are you sure you don't just have a mild bladder infection? When I get one it does not "hurt" to pee as it does for others and I just get a sore "lower belly." I take some cranberry tabs and drink a lot of water and it is gone. I agree with others...trip to gyno not a bad idea.

Try cutting down on the yogurt. Too much bacterial overgrowth could cause Gyno issues.

You could just be constipated.
