Does this mean that my bladder is shutting down?

My urine is coming out slower and slower every day, & I have to go pee every 30 minutes to every hour, every day all day, for the last 4 years, Does that mean that my bladder could be shutting down?

If you are a guy, it sounds like your prostate is enlarged. This is something to see your doctor about.

"The severity of symptoms in people who have prostate gland enlargement varies, but symptoms tend to gradually worsen over time. Common signs and symptoms include:

    Frequent or urgent need to urinate
    Increased frequency of urination at night
    Difficulty starting urination
    Weak urine stream or a stream that stops and starts
    Dribbling at the end of urination
    Inability to completely empty the bladder"

This of course applies if you're a guy. (You didn't say in your post.)
