I rarely need to go in the middle of the night. I don't believe i completely fill my bladder durring the day before urgency hits. I feel fully emptied after going.

There are two things which can be considered in your case.First is urethral stricture and second is enlarged prostate.Though you don't have typical symptoms of prostate enlargement, but at your age this is more common cause.A sonography can help to confirm or rule this out.Sometime only a part of prostate is enlarged and you might not have all symptoms.

Second thing is stricture of urethra can present like this.A micturating urethrogram can help to evaluate this.

So ideal step would to see a urologist and get these investigations done.

Please ask if there are doubts.
