View Full Version : Teeth tickle during urination

When urinating do you get sensation similar to tickling in your molars\chewing teeth? It is worth mentioning that this happens when urine is held in and finally released.

If so is this phenomenon experienced by both men and women?

I wanted to make this a poll, but forgot how to do that, so can someone help me?

Simple poll will be yes or no.

Can't say I've noticed that, no.

The only time I might notice that is if I have cotton mouth and move my cheeks off my teeth. If that makes any sense.

Do you have fillings in those teeth? And a metal toilet? =/ Maybe not.

Yes, i have fillings in many teeth in the back of my mouth an extra long roots as well.:shrug:. As an aside, this has been happening throughout my life, it is a good sensation so i assume it is not a sign of a problem.

I've never heard of this before, are you sure it's not just that sensation of breathing in really cold air?

Let's hope not.

Do you stand up or sit down?

This is most fascinating. My hope is that someone will read this and know that there are others who experience this.

I remember a long time ago someone telling me that their teeth itch, but i never got a chance to investigate further.

For me this is directly related to holding in my urine for a reasonably long time, then expelling (standing up).

I'll assume you really mean micturating rather than urinating. I have never heard of that but I have two hypothesis:

- There is a low level current in your toilet and the extra salt in your urine (from holding it in so long) is allowing charge to surge 'up the stream' and fillings in your teeth have a tingly response.

- When you hold it in too long, you get small bladder infections which result in nerve signals that your brain misinterprets as coming from your teeth.

No. It happens any place i go, public toilets, against a wall\tree etc. AND has happened all of my life.

Also, does anyone get shivers when they pee?

Bear in mind that neither of these sensations happen all of the time.

heh, the french(quebecers anyway) have a specific word for the shiver sensation - des frissons.

I looked everywhere on the Net, and I found this thread, so I joined the site.


John, I feel the same sensation... I was talking about it to my friend today, and he said he didn't feel the same thing. It's generally when I hold it in and then go. My teeth feel very funny; it's not a bad thing, as you said.

I read a discussion on it somewhere else and from what I got from that is that it could have something to do with not breathing right. People say they get it when they have a cold or a throat sore etc..

Firstly, This is some serious thread necromancy. (reviving a thread to make it undead)

As for the OP's original point, I doubt you'll find everyone has this reaction (I don't for one) however I think you'll find it's down to how your brain has developed. Sometimes sensations can get merged together, this is why it's not common in everyone. It's possible that for some reason the brains interpretation of urinating is linked to the brains interpretation of the tooth nerves. I wouldn't know what would happen if you ever got tooth ache.

John,
since this is over 2 yrs old, do you still have this sensation while peeing?

No .
I had for a while some painful burning and it went away by itself .
That was a long time ago though .

Thanks for the welcome. :cD

I hope I'm breathing correctly. :o I feel my teeth tingle every time that I try to 'hold it', and I haven't experienced anything different with a cold or other sickness.

My friend told me that I was weird because of this, so I told him that I would look for it on the Internet. I could find this discussion only. Haha!

This doesn't happen to me, but I think I can imagine the exact sensation you are talking about. I get a weird feeling in my teeth when I see certain textures (there are characteristic patterns of grooves that do it, and also certain clusters and groupings of small objects).

John99
10-11-09, 11:23 PM
i totally forgot about this thread.

i am not a doctor but i am fairly certain it pertains to nerves in the jaw.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigeminal_nerve

for me it was always something i felt so it was completely normal for me. tickling is not really the right word but it is hard to explain, it is just a mild sensation around the teeth in the lower jaw and only around the molars.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tooth_Section.svg

it is funny how it only happens when urination it is delayed for a fairly long time, which is something that obviously occurs often.

now i now for a fact that i have large roots in my teeth, my dentist after struggling and barely being able to pull a tooth told me i had the longest roots he has ever seen. of course he has not seen everyone so i would say my roots are longer than normal and perhaps pauls are too. so that can be a common denominator, which kind of makes sense and i have the feeling there is a relation.

i asked the question here because it isnt something that people would normally talk about but i know it happens to other people. it has to.:)

Well it's known that Dyspraxic's can suffer from over-sensitisation to certain textures or sounds, what plays them up is basically the "Extreme data" that their crosswired brain adds to that texture or sound which their body doesn't handle too well.

There are more obvious examples if you look to the outputs heavy doses of "Mind Altering" drugs can do to. Anyone ever seen sound as colourful patterns?

I always wondered where that old saying came from:

"I've got to pee so bad, my back teeth are floating!"

John,

not really. at least i dont notice it so i dont pay attention. what happened was i had a tooth pulled, as i mentioned. on th eright side in the back. the tooth was embedded tightly into my jaw. once the tooth was pulled i get a sensation if i run my finger across my jaw, right in the front where the Trigeminal neerve ends.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gray778_Trigeminal.png

apparently that nerve and the tooth were getting the signal.

If you get a strange sensation when peeing dare I say Gonorrhea? Go get tested.

Hi All, and John in particular,

This is my first post here.... :)

I have the exact same thing. Whenever I have to urinate very hard I have that tickeling sensation in my teeth (all of them). As soon as I'm loosing the fluid that sensation is stopping.

For the record I have very 'good' and strong teeth. Don't know about the lenght of the roots.

Theyare probably long. When my dentist pulled out my back teeth he said he never seen roots that long. Now when i urinate this sensation, which is hard to desccribe, but it like someon scratching an itchy tooth, no longer happens. You do get an extra feeling of relief and accomplishment. AKA, itchy teeth.

I posted a .png. (post #32)

And thanks for the kind words.:)

I cant help but wonder what the number of people who experience this is. AFA i can tell it is maybe 1-10% of the population.

Incidentally, i can feel the end of the nerve i the front of my chin. I rub my finger on it and i onow exactly where the nerve ends (see pic). This happened after the teeth were extracted. At first i though there was nerve damage from the root of the tooth intermingling with the nerve. over time that feeling dissipated (though not entirely) so it was most likely some form of extra sensitivity.

Any more than that and i really dont know. We need a competent surgeon to come in here and tie up the loose ends.

Revision A:

Now that i think about it, it could be that the roots are curved. Seems more likely and perhaps long too.

Revision B:

It should stand as long AND curved, due to the fact that the roots are hitting another nerve. Specifically the mandibular nerve (branch thereof), which is part of the other nerve i mentioned. Well, that is the best i can do.

I would like this to be know as:

"The John99 phenomenon (or effect): In relation to the Trigeminal nerve and tooth interaction." Also, urination or bladder should be in there too.

something like that, sounds good to me.

Edit:

So far, as far as title would go:

1. Urination (for lack of a better term)
2. Trigeminal Nerve
3. Teeth\Tooth
4. John99

Of course not in that order.:)

If you're letting the dude pee in your mouth, you have bigger problems that the fact that it tickles your teeth...
