Hey, I'm a healthy 16 year old male. Recently I've felt a constant discomfort, like a slight pressure from the bladder almost all day, and recently, more frequent urination. If I drank a glass of water, 1 hour later I would have to go to the bathroom 2 or 3 times all within 30 minutes of each other (I rarely have to get up during the night to use the bathroom). I went to the doctor and a urine culture showed no bacteria/signs of infection. I was prescribed Detrol LA but it hasn't helped the constant discomfort or somewhat frequent urination. I am clear of any STD's and I'm not really sure what the problem is. Some of my cousins have had a few kidney stones, so possibly it could be one lodged somewhere? Also I have read about Interstitial Cystitis and Chronic Urinary Retention but am not sure exactly what this is.

i have this exact same problem, started 2 days ago, the 1st day was alot worse than it is now. only a slight pressure, not pain but enough to be annoying. i stopped drinking coffee because the caffein obviously makes it worse as its a bladder irritant. i am also clear of STD's and infection(UTI).

just read up on kidney stones. it is unlikely in this case as their is usually pain involved with kidney stones.

It kind of subsided but I still think chronic urinary retention is what it is.

Jonny, I would check with a urologists for either prostatitis or something called interstitial cystitis - the later is probably unlikely because of your age.

I have been serveral times. Everytime, my prostate was enlarged and it was painful when they pushed on it. It's been almost a year. This pain sucks.

Funny thing is, now after I urinate it feels better? Worse in the mornings most times.

I have had exactly the same symptoms. I posted my symptoms under
rotating testicular pain topic. As my bladder fills pain develop
and it is relieved on emptying. My urologist says I have prostatitis. Trying to find out if these are also symptoms that
show with prostatitis.

It could be interstitial cystitis or urinary retention especially when there was no sign of bacteria from your urine test. These conditions share some of the symptoms of a bladder or urinary tract infection. I suggest you seek the assistance of a urologist for specialized treatment. You may also see for further information about bladder disorders and similar problems.
