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.

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).

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.

What examples do you have in mind?

If it's got anything to do with your teeth, you're doing it wrong.

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!"

Reading about it kind of brought to mind where the saying 'loud dress' 'he dresses so loudly' might have come from.

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.

apparently that nerve and the tooth were getting the signal.

NO!

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

Orleander, what happened to your old Avatar, I kind of had a thing for the Miss America type picture!
Now I've got to change mine.

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.

I've heard of stomach pains from not pooping but nothing like this.

It's better than having interstitial cystitis and getting random pain like me :|

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.
