Hello. It seems that you may be having the symptoms of stress incontinence of urine. This occurs when the pressure in the bladder exceeds that on the urethral opening. There may be small leaks during activities which increase abdominal pressure, such as laughter, sneezing, coughing, etc. It is possible that the neck of the bladder has descended (dropped downwards). I am pasting an extract from an article on this topic. This extract is published by Dorothy N. Kammerer-Doak in "... Two possible causes of genuine stress urinary incontinence (GSUI) have been postulated relative to how the bladder neck functions to maintain continence with increased intra-abdominal pressure.......When the urethra has descended or is hypermobile, increases in intra-abdominal pressure are transmitted to the bladder but not to the urethra. Bladder pressure may then exceed urethral pressure, resulting in GSUI....." In the absence of any indicators of infection, stress incontinence should be considered to be a result of descent of the bladder neck. Some more suggested reading - Regards

Awoke with sever tearing pain in the groin just above my left leg. I have had symptoms of tilted bladder but never had this pain. (Especially before voiding my bladder). What could this mean?
