Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

With the symptoms that you are having i.e. unable to pass urine and sweating profusely you should go to the emergency right away.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You will most likely require management of your urine problem which may include either passing a catheter in your bladder through your urethrea (penis) or directly into your lower abdomen if that's not possible.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Your sweating may be related to the fact that you are not passing urine.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Sweating profusely can sometimes be a risk for dehydration.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you are dehydrated you may require intravenous fluid administration.
