What is the cause for problems during urinating?
Q: I am a 24 years old male . I used to masturbate while lying on my back. Sometimes I would work myself up stopping only before ejaculation, now for the past 3-4 months I have problem urinating . It dribbles out in the beginning but later on picks up speed. The doctor diagnosed me with Cystitis and prescribed me Glevo 500 1 CAP for 10 days Urispas, 3 tabs daily for 15 days the problem went away then. The urine c\s test was also normal but now the problem is back. There is an uneasy feeling all day as if the bladder is not empty and I feel the urge to pass urine again and again to get rid of the uneasy feeling. I went to the doctor again, he asked me to take Alkasol for a month three times a day and to take another course of the medicine prescribed earlier. Do I have an enlarged prostate? What test should I under take to find out?
A:Your symptoms indicate that you have prostatitis (inflammation of your prostate). Best course for you would be to see a urologist who will do a few tests such urine culture, ultrasound and uroflowmetry before he prescribes you some medicines. You need not worry and you will have no problem in fully recovering of your present problem.
