Does anyone have urine infection like symptoms after having salicylates... I don’t actually have a UTI (urinary tract infection), it just feels like it sometimes after having sals??? - Rose

Yes! I get like an urgency to pee even when it's completely empty. Especially at night - Alex

Yes! But when I am careful and watch my SALS, the urgency and need lessens. Took me a while to figure it all out....I'm a slow learner. :) - Clare|

It affects our 3yo in this way. He overflows nappies at night time & often wakes very distressed when he needs to pee overnight telling us it hurts - Connie

My 4.5 year old daughter has a problem with amines, she started wetting her pants at about 2.5 years old (after being dry and self toilet trained for 6 months), it got so bad we were up at the hospital at one point as she was urgently urinating every 30-45 mins for a few days, it was horrible - Melinda see full story [1555]

It’s very frustrating, I went to the doctors for a good 4 years and kept being turned away and told it was IBS in the end I thought I was going insane! – Jan

Clear salicylates reaction here. When my dd started school (and had strawberries and watermelon in her lunch box) she started wetting her pants. Once going failsafe this stopped. She has now been failsafe for years and only has minor issues when filling her bucket. I discovered I was sals sensitive when I went low salicylate to support someone else then had 2 small slices of watermelon. I felt like I had a UTI and had to pee every 30 mins all day. I also stick to within my limits mostly - my bucket is bigger than my dds - Tanya

This is what happens to me but never turning into an actual UTI - Helen

After amines... frequency and urgency. Same for husband and 3yo – Edith

Yes, every time! Took me a while to figure it out. I get a burning sensation in my bladder, when I try to urinate, nothing happens! - Robin

When my son was very sensitive, one piece of carrot or using any toothpaste would make him wet the bed at night – Anne

Antioxidants were worst here - Tracy

I used to get that when I ate a diet high in sals. Don’t have a problem now I watch my sal intake strictly 😊 - Jen

Yes!!! Omg and my youngest all the time..... It's hell if we aren't strict - Terry

I’ve seen this a lot - an irritable bladder or interstitial cystitis - dietitian

Yep, three of us in this house react like that with sals (and certain flavour additives too) – Amy
