Frequent Need/feeling to Urinate, male early 20s. Sleep through the night however

Edited , 4 users are following.

Hi there,

Since end of October I've had issues with frequent urination. A feeling like there is always pee at the tip of the penis needing to get out. Constant pressure on bladder when walking and stuff too, only time its not that bad is when im laying down. However, since it started i have not had to wake up in the middle of the night to urinate at all. Its daytime frequency.

It has made me super sad because I exercise and play sports such as hockey and soccer regularly and this issue I can barely play. Obviously my mind is constantly on this.

It was bad in October/November, saw my doctor who told me to wait and see if it continues till after christmas. It actually wasnt too bad over december/january as much but got worse at the beginning of February again, so I saw the doctor again and he has me taking a natural vitamin daily called Saw Palmetto.

Looking to see if anyones experienced the same thing...I'm still young and i am stressing about this every single day. Thanks

    Would that imply that i got hurt from playing sports? I dont think so, it didnt start after a game, its just affected me in sports and exercise, and every day life to be honest

      Hernias dont have to arise from injury. You may have a slight weakness in your abdominal wall...quite common in men. As you say it doesnt cause a problem when you lay down and you have pressure during the day, I immediately thought about something "tipping back" when you lay down and causing pressure when you are upright. Just a thought.

      That is a good point....its a very weird feeling and hard to explain, to be honest. Its a bad feeling that my penis never feels like...empty/dry? Like it used to be. I dont know. My doctor doesnt have many answers and my urologist appointment isnt till a few months.
