Lower abdomen and groin area pressure. Why do I have to urinate constantly?

Hi- I have a pressure like feeling in my lower abdomen/ groin area and I feel like I have to urinate constantly. In addition, when I have a bowel movement I feel pain and discomfort deep in the same area. It s also difficult for me to urinate when I begin. The only thing I ve changed is that I ve been taking 30mg of Vyvance for the last 20 days. Chris

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have infection of the prostate(Prostatitis).

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination .A Microscopic examination and culture of urethral discharge collected after prostatic massage will help to confirm the diagnosis.

Please get your routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily and switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.You may need to take antibiotics for 3-4 weeks.
