First off, I'll say I have no trouble holding my urine before i get to the bathroom. After I urinate though, it feels like I haven't emptied completely. Since the stream is now weak, I try to gently milk out the last few drops. This would be fine; except, two minutes later there is almost always another drop or two. If i don't get it out I start to feel an aching in my urethra: not just in the penis but more so in the area between the scrotum and anus.
More recently, I've had this feeling after sitting for long periods of time and sometimes when standing.
no std's, no prostate trouble, I've taken antibiotics to clear any uti, I've lessened my caffeine intake and tried strengthening my 'lower pelvic floor'
Nothing seems to work, it's embarrassing and getting unbearable... :confused:
