This is Dr. David

when you pass urine, you use both of your parasympathetic nervous system and sympathetic nervous system

the parasympathetic nervous system helps you relax your pelvic floor muscles and the sympathetic nervous system tells your bladder muscles to contract and push out the urine.

the parasympathetic nervous system can cause some tingling and sometimes even twitching of your neck and arm muscles as you try to relax to pass urine out.

this is very common and not a dangerous issue

do these sensations bother you?

you don't have them at any other time correct?
