Hello everybody..i am votzino..33 years old. I already have this problem 10 years ago...i always have this desire to urinate frequently especially when i feel cold..i have the thought that this isn't not right although i'm in no pain while urinating..i live in the Philippines before, whenever I am in a shopping mall with their airconditions i urinate very often..every 10 minutes especially when my bladder is full...and sometimes when I am in an area where the electric fan blows strong the problem goes on...but when its hot there is no problem at all. I am a heavy alcohol drinker in the Philippines..whenever i drink beer after i urinate and the next would follow like after 5 minutes..and my friends would be always be irked because of my frequent trip to the restroom. When I had my check up the doctor told me to have my urinalysis the result was that there is an infection in my urine and that i should have an ultrasound in my bladder..after the ultrasound, the result said that I have a Urine Retention in my bladder..and now i am living in the state of Michigan where the weather is always cold makes me always find a restroom to urinate. My question is ..if I have this frequent urination, why is it that i have this urine retention? Is this a worrying situation?

Please somebody help me on this please?Thanks

  • Sometimes people just have problems emptying there bladder for no good reason, and sometimes it is related to BPH, you are rather young for that though. The reason you go so much is because you have overflow retention. This means your bladder is very full and it try's very hard to get out all that it can, but your bladder muscle or prostate is preventing this from happening. So little by little the urine is able to escape. This is why when you had your bladder ultrasound it showed a high amount of urine in there. maybe your md could try you on some meds to help. If it is your prostate maybe flomax?
