I have recently been having some Urinary issues and it's driving me insane. On the 14th of May 2018 I had an intense urge to urinate during an exam. I went to the toilet and barely anything would come out but there was a small amount of urine. I went back to the exam and as soon as I sat down I had the same urge to urinate but it felt slightly more intense. I asked to go to the toilet again (which was rather embarrassing considering I only just got back) and was told I needed to wait due to only one person allowed to use the toilet at a time. The intensity got slightly worse and I came over with some panic attack symptoms as well. I told the lecturer I felt ill and really had to go, I was allowed to go and when I got to the toilet I barely urinated again. I went outside to try and calm down in case it was an anxiety attack or something and the feeling hadn't disappeared but mostly subsided so I tried again. As soon as I sat down again the intense urge came back again...
This has now been happening since. I almost constantly feel the urge to pee. I have recently started to get lower stomach aches which I have started taking paracetamol for. (The aches wasn't exactly painful, more uncomfortable than anything). Sometimes I'll get the urge and get to the bathroom and so little will come out, with a push I can get some out but it's still normally a trickle. This seems to happen some what of about 10-15 times a day. I have also a couple times had a slight pain when peeing (it was as though somebody was pushing their thumb into my lower stomach area).
The confusing thing seems to be that this has all seemed to appear out of nowhere. I never had any issues before the 14th and now I've almost become obsessed. I've barely been out because it seems to get worse when inside a car for more than 5 minutes or walking for about half a mile. I'm unsure if this is down to an infection and the movement making it feel worse or anxiety. I am also unsure if anxiety has lead me to completely image and believe my symptoms. I didn't have anxiety before and wouldn't have described the anxiety from the exams to be any more than "normal" for a student at this time.
I have been to my GP and told to do a Urine test which I am still waiting for the results even a week later.. The GP also said it seems unlikely to be positive because it seems unusual as it gets worse when going out.
Any information would be great.
Do you think this sounds like an actual infection or purely in my head?
How can I try to suppress the urination urges even when I know I don't actually need to relieve myself?
What do I do if my urine test ends up being negative?
