Urinary issues, constant urge to go and difficultly going.

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm in desperate need. For about 2 months now I've been having this issue of having to urinate very frequently, sometimes every 30 minutes, and on top of that it is very difficult for me to urinate, as in starting the stream and keeping it going. I'm 40 yrs old and had a similar issue about 11 yrs ago. At the time the urologist ran the scope and said I did have a enlarged prostate. It got to where it didn't bother me as much but still have always had some difficulty urinating but didn't affect my life.

Right now it's destroying my life. I'm unable to do anything or go anywhere Because I take so long to urinate, plus I'm afraid of going out somewhere and have complete urine retention and have to go to the ER. I don't want to have sex at all because it's uncomfortable and afraid it will affect me urinating.

I went to the Dr last month. He gave me antibiotics and a shot. Honestly the shot did help me with urinating but effects have faded. I'm on flowmax and it helps but has horrible side effects. Dr never told me if there was a infection or not but don't think there is. I see the urologist in 3 weeks. One day I'll be somewhat ok, the next day will be horrible with constant urge to pee. Night time going to bed seems to help.

I have had several kidney stones over the past few years and never seen a Dr about them. It seems I've had some prostate issues since about 20 yrs old. This has drove me to the point where I can't deal with it anymore. Greatly affecting my work. I now have full blown anxiety and panic disorder steming from this. I'm failing school because of it and may lose my girlfriend of 2.5 yrs because I guess she's tired of everything from my issue. I feel alone and afraid I can't be helped and will have this forever. No one, even Dr's know whats going on and act confused.

Am I the only man dealing with this?

      I don't know what the shot was but I called today to see about getting it again. The Dr just flat out said no, just take Flomax. We'll today has been a bad day on urinating (very difficult to pee) and almost thinking about going to the ER. My girlfriend and I decided to go out for a small drive and I was worried about it because I've been having a hard time today. We'll we went to a small store and I had to go really bad, asked to use there bathroom. I was in there 15 minutes but unable to start a stream to pee. I was in a little of pain. We had to drop everything and leave to go home.

      I was finally able to pee when I got home but 5 minutes later feels like I have to go again. I just don't know what to do. I'm the only person I know who has a urine problem like this. I'm only 40 and I barely look like I'm 25 yrs old.

      Anyone ever experience anything like this or know what it is? It's like for some strange reason my prostate has swollen the size of a softball or the muscles in that area is not working correctly to relax and let urine out?

      It's still like another 3 weeks before I can see the urologist and I just can't keep dealing with this.
