Please help me figure out what is wrong with me

I am a 17 year old male. Roughly a week ago, when I woke up, I urinated and felt a burning sensation in my urethra. Immediatelly after, I got the urge to urinate again, although little to no urine actually came out. After that first time, the burning sensation stopped completely, and has never recurred. However, the frequent urge to urinate has remained and I am starting to get nervous as to what it can be.

The condition seems to come and go in waves. If I am doing something engaging, or something that requires a great deal of concentration(or even just force myself not to think about it), I feel no symptoms. However, if I have nothing to do or am thinking about the condition it starts up again. It also seems to get worse if I am in a chilly environment.

I went to the doctor the day after this started and got a urine test. He told me I was completely clean and that it should go away after a few days.

The only other symptom that I've felt is the fact that my body seems to be actively trying to expel whatever urine is left in the bladder. I mean that I have to actively force myself to hold it in or a drop will dribble out here and there. I also have been waking up to find a small amount of moisture on my underwear, as though a small amount leaked out during the night.

I'd also like to mention that I have not been sexuall active for a very long time, and there is no way that I could have contracted an STD. Does anyone have any experience with a condition like this? I'm planning to visit the doctor again over the next few days and get another checkup, but any advice is welcome. Thank you very much.

  • Try not to worry about it. It could be that you are nervous that the doctor didn't find anything wrong and concentrating too ******n what your bladder is feeling and that is making the problem worse. However, if the problem continues, by all means go back to the doctor as you have planned and be sure and mention the dribbling you have experienced because that could be a symptom of a prostate problem.

  • Your bladder sounds stress related since you say it isn't a problem when you are occupied and thinking of something else, but once you start thinking about it you have trouble. My friend had a big problem almost identicle to yours. He was very anxious in public and going out to the shops with him was a real challenge as every five minutes (literally) he felt he was busting to go but most of the time nothing came out.When he was away from crouds and occupied he would go ages without having a pee. This is when we pin pointed it to being anxiety. He is good now when going out. He restrained himself from going to the toilet adn I encouraged him that he was doing well and to just look at the ground and not the people. Now he can go to the shops without spending most of his time in the loo.Your leaking during the night might be lax spincer muscles. Pelvic floor exercises are good for strengthening these muscles.Agapesearchingsam
