Hi, i'm a 19 year old male, and I started having feelings or urinary urgency and frequency in the month of july. The problem has been going on since, and has steadily worsened. (i've been to the ER twice.) It's a very strange story, because I'm yet to find out whats really wrong. I first was sent to a urologist, who gave me a CAT scan on my kidney and bladder. Nothing showed up. After I told my urolgist I had a slight bulge/herniated disk in my low back, i was sent to a neurosurgeon. At about that time, I started having trouble emptying my bladder. The neurosurgeon did MRI's on my entire spine and brain. Nothing showed up and he said that the bulge was so minor, that it didn't seem to have any reaction with the spinal cord, let alone nerves that would effect the bladder. So now i'm being sent to the urologist again to have more tests. I was just wondering what you think it could be. I've had blood tests, prostate exams, MRI's and urine tests to see if I had a tract infection, but they have all come back negative.
A urodynamic evaluation measuring your bladder pressures, sensations, bladder capacity, extra bladder contractions will provide some objective information regarding your bladder function and is a test that you have not mentioned. Are your symptoms both day and night? Typically urinary frequency that occurs only during the day and in which no other cause is found, often has an emotional basis. Assuming that any further testing is unrevealing, then a trial on a mild tranquilizer such as Librium would seem quite reasonable. Urinary frequency may be your way of dealing with stress, just as some people develop tics.
