weaker urine flow..........strange symptoms worried

Over the past month or so I have suddenly noticed less pressure in flow while urinating. There is no pain involved but the stream seems somewhat weaker and I seem to be going more frequently.

No need to get up and go at night so far (symptom of enlarged prostate), and odd thing is when out for hours I haven't ever needed to use restroom unnecessarily either.

Another strange symptom is a vague numbness or tension inside the groin area, though that is more recent.
I've been taking both Saw Palmetto and Pygeum on off chance it is starting prostate enlargement, for probably 3 weeks now.

Could one of these herbs cause the numbness? And does anyone think this is enlarging prostate, or inflamed? Or could it be something else, tension or UTI? How can one tell.
I have no healthcare or doctor :(

Hi, jaypass. While I am not a urology expert I have had my fair share of urological issues. The decrease in flow could be a urethral stricture which is scar tissue which grows inside the urethra. Another reason for decrease flow pressure is a weak bladder. The frequency would suggest a UTI. The numbness/tension in groin area I wouldn't really be able to give an informed answer. I hope this helps, J.
