Hi im looking for info about depression. My husband is sick for almost a year now. We got problems in our marrage and i thought we sorted that out it seems we didn''t. The problem is he complains about a pain in his bladder he can''t urinate anymore stopped eating lost a lot of weight. He also gets very aggressive. Is this possible that depression can be the cause for all off this? We went to sevral doctors but nothing they done did help him.

Obviously, where there are problems in how a person experiences his/her world, or between a couple, it's ideal if they can successfully work these out themselves. Sometimes they really need to help of a shrink, both to assess and identify the problems, and to suggest the best ways of dealing with them.
The symptoms you describe are not at all typical of depression. At most, depression can contribute by amplifyinf pain and similar symptoms, rather than causing them.
If he really can't urinate any more, or does so only with difficulty or pain, there could well be something serious wrong physically, which needs proper attentioon from a SPECIALIST in general medicine, and it sounds well beyond the usual abilities of a GP.
Ots reassuring to hear nothing was found wrong with his prostate or urine. You don't mention whether he's on any meds at all, as some of them may cause difficulty in passing urine.

A member in my family also had the same problem regarding bladder. As it turned out (also after many tests and not knowing the cause), when she went to pee her bladder didn''t fully empty- as a result over time her bladder had old pee in it that was causing an infection. She had to go for an operation to open her bladder hole (don''t know the actual name, sorry) and now she''s fine.

Why doesnt he see a good urologist to check the pain in his bladder? they do ultrasounds etc.
