Hey everybody,
For about a week now I have had the constant feeling of needing to urinate. After urination the feeling returns within 5-30 minutes. The urine is normal color, although the stream seems weaker but this could be because I never allow time for my bladder to fill. Sometimes afer about a half hour, I go and urinate and a good amount comes out, like a normal urination, other times; afew drops. I guess I've always urinated alot for a guy but I am always working out and take in a huge amount of fluids throughout the day. I first noticed these symptoms about 5 days ago in the middle of the night after masturbation. Sometimes I have experienced, and have heard of other men experiencing the urge to urinate after masturbation but this feeling usually passes after about 15-20 minutes. It almost feels like there are just afew drops of urine in the middle of the shaft of my penis that need to be cleared, but once they are, the feeling quickly returns. Although this has only been happening for less than a week, my quality of life has suffered, mainly because it is very difficult for me to sleep with this. I'm definately not OCD, but I am a worrier and I have read that things like this could be mental. If it is mental, why the sudden onset? I have yet to make a doctors appointment, but will do that tommarow as my parents are coming into town. Anyone else experiencing this? I am hesitent to attribute this to a bladder infection, but I have been noticing slight slight slight aches or pains in my abdomen area, but that could be just because of my 20 or so trips to the bathroom each day, or because I am constantly dwelling on every slight sensation I have down there. Also, I have noticed increased muscle soreness(back/legs) but this could be because of lack of sleep. Any thoughts or input would be greatly appriciated, as I am at a loss. During the day, this condition is annoying, but managable, at night is when it really bothers me. Again, thanks for the time, and any reccomendations/simular stories, thoughts would help me out alot. I have tried cranberry juice with little to no imporvement.
Will.

  • I'm a male, age 43. I've had the same problem since I was approximately 20yrs. old. Mostly I feel it after having a few beers then having sex. I've told my doctor a few times but never really pursued it so I don't know exactly what the problem is but I will pursue it a little more adamantly on my next visit.I too would like to find an answer.

  • could be cystitis which is quite often misdiagnosed. This is an infection in the bladder and can easily be eliminated with antibiotics.

  • I am a 25 year old male and have had these symptoms for over a year. I've seen two urologists, two chiropractors, an endochronologist, and a nephrologist. I've been test for numerous things (including interstitial cystitis) and no one has found anything wrong with me. CAT scans, 24-hr urine samples, the whole nine yards. I am currently taking Lexapro in case it is stress-related. It hasn't helped much.ANY insight on this is greatly appreciated.

  • Tonight I have had a similar problem. I went out with a friend for a few beers, came home, and masturbated a while later. However it seems like 20 minutes after masturbation, I had the sensation to urinate, and while I did go a good amount, it burned like ***l....now I cant shake the feeling of the need to urinate....any ideas? what can I do....I just want to go to sleep but it is very uncomfortable to get into bed thinking that I might have to go as well as the constant burning sensation. I am a 23 year old healthy male. I'm a non-smoker (with the occasional cigarette) and a social drinker.~XMX~

I have tried cranberry juice with little to no imporvement.Will. I have the exact same problem...EXACTLY. Even the muscle soreness in my back and legs, but my last two workouts were back and legs so im really not sure that has anything to do with this. I am 25/male. I do consume caffeine during the day but i drink a significant amount of water as well. Please someone help. This is driving me nuts. It started about a week ago after masturbating for me as well, same sensation of a few drops in the middle of the shaft, no matter how many times i pee it doesnt go away. The sensation is there more when i sit down. This is annoying.

  • I have this. Came up yesterday and when I suddenly had to piss in uni. It was odd because I'd just been for a piss and normally I go 8 hours without needing one. After that I constantly felt like I needed to go again and when I went very little would come out. It doesn't burn and went away for periods of 4-5 hours before coming back again. Its really getting in the way of my life and I have no idea what to do. Theres a lot of people with the same problems in this thread but not too many solutions. 18 year old male, non smoker or drinker.

  • I went to the doc yesterday, he had no clue. Said it could possibly be some kind of infection. He did a quick urine test. No problems or blood. Checked my prostate and that was fine too. He gave me some antibiotics for the 'possible' infection. He said to wait a week and if its still there to call back and he'll refer me to a uroligyst (sp?).Had the feeling all day again today. Only peed once out of pure defiance of this stupid thing. If I get results with the meds ill post up what he gave me.

  • Went to the urologist today. He double checked the prostate, said it felt "weird" - he didnt say "weird", but i cant remember the exact word he used. He may have said "spongy" but again im not sure. I was distracted because i had a finger in my butt. Anyways, he said the most likely cause is infection of the prostate causing the urge. Said the back pain ive been experiencing in the morning is likely a symptom as well. Gave me some meds that he thinks should knock it out in 10 days to a month. I will report back if things get better.

  • urologist has me on 500mg of levaquin once a day for ten days, he said it could take up to 2 more refills to totally clear up but that it should do the trick. even after only two days its already getting much better. The urge has dwindled quite a bit. here's hoping its gone in another week, and that this helps some other people.

  • I am 18 years old and i too have this problem. I have gone about 6 times today and it still feels like i have to pee or that some pee is stuck in my urethra. I am really concerned because i have other symptoms along with this. I was diagnosed with supra ventricular tachycardia and i was put on beta blockers. My pee has been coming out clear or very light yellow. I also haven't been drinking too much water, like 4 cups a day or less. Could this be a problem in my kidneys?
