Ok I am a 17 year old male and have had this problem for quite a few years now and I have gone to the hospital to find out what is wrong. About once a week or so I fin myself unable to pee, sometimes not even a drop, despte the fact that my bladder is full to the rim. According to the people at the hospital and the tests they have done I have a mislerned urinating reflex. Ok, But that still doesnt explain why my urine becomes mirky right before the problem really sets in and sometimes asif something pops in the urinal tube at the momen that I suddenly am able to pee again. (murkyness may occur here too sometimes). This problem has been getting progressively worse since it started. Finaly, just now I had a short sharp pain in the urinal tube, somewhere towards the end, but not quite, after wich a small amount of transparent fluid came out...
(note that I am not yet sexually active)
i am going back to the hospital next friday to see if the medication that is supposed to help my peeing reflexes relax helped... But the other symptoms dont make any sence... Someone please help.
thanks in advance
Urinary retention disorder (the inability to empty the bladder) can be caused by a stone or tumor or can be a functional disorder. âFunctionalâ means that the neuron-vegetative reflexes that control the act of urination are disturbed and there are no structural changes on the bladder that could cause the retention.
An ultrasound, a contrast X-ray cyctographya and endoscopic cyctoscopya can distinguish organic causes from functional retention. Urinary infections are not unusual for patients experiencing urinary retention and pain in the urinal tube and changes in the appearance of the urine are frequently caused by urinary infections. To follow up, you can schedule a visit to your family doctor, or head directly to a urologist for help.
