I have been tested for a uti but am clear, for about the past six months this has slowly got worse. Mornings are worse, when I wake up I cannot hold my pee at all I have to go immediately, even if I've had to go in the night. During the normal daytime when I feel I need to go it comes on very quickly and I am dying to go in minutes, I used to be able to hold on but lately I can't. I usually can't do the half hour journey home from work without stopping and in the night I dash to the loo at least twice, I had a test where I had to pee when I got to the surgery but I couldn't hold it between 5am and 9am when my appointment was, when I gave the sample it was clear of diabetes. When I do go I can't stop and start, I find it impossible to stop, when I do want to go it's a very sudden strong urge and is a strong uncontrollable stream which is embarrassing sometimes in public. At home if someone's in the bathroom I have to go in a bottle. Is there anything I can do to try and cure this, my bladder has suddenly become seriously weak!

u need to see your dr and he will give u a digital exam for enlarged prostate, there are meds like FLOWMAX he can prescribe and if u want to spend the money about $3500. there r methods of shrinking the prostate but most insurance will not pay
