son has urge to urinate even after pain

My Son is 5 years old and all of a sudden starting having the urge to urinate right after going to the bathroom. He tested negative for UTI, his urine is tip top, no pain and no accidents(day or night). He is a very healthy child and hasn't had any major illnesses. His doctor gave him a cycle of antibiotics and for a near the end of the cycle and few days after, it seemed to be gone, then started happening again. It doesn't happen every time he urinates, and sometimes the feeling comes 30 min after urinating. I find that when he is not focusing on it, then it seems to not happen as much. He would hold in his urine in the past, for example not going to pee when he woke up and waiting until 9am! Can holding his urine in so much has affected some muscle function? VERY VERY frustrated!...any info would be appreciated Smile

hi there
there is nothing to worry.
improper toilet habits can lead to such problems.
but to be on the safe side and to rule out other causes i would like you to run few tests:
urine culture
ultrasound abdomen pelvis (for any structural changes in urinary tract and any hydronephrosis.)
urodynamics studies (to rule out different types of incontinence).

consult a urologist for further help.
thanks for using ehealth forum.
