I'm dealing with it now. 43 year old man with all the same simptoms. All the same tests. Every thing was clear...but the urge to urinate is bad all day and gets much worse at night. I'll feel it sometimes ten minutes after I go in the evening. It's so irritating. No pain, just irritating. Please help

Welcome to e health forum.

Your symptoms could be due to Interstitial cystitis.

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a inflammatory condition of the bladder that results in recurring discomfort or pain in the bladder and the surrounding pelvic region. The symptoms vary from case to case and even in the same individual. People may experience mild discomfort, pressure, tenderness, or intense pain in the bladder and pelvic area. Symptoms may include an urgent need to urinate, a frequent need to urinate, or a combination of these symptoms.

You may consult with your doctor or a urologist who can make a proper diagnosis and provide proper help.

In the mean time anti inflammatory medications (Advil) or tylenol can be used to control the pain. If not you can ask your doctor to provide better prescription pain killers to resolve your symptoms.
