Question: When I urinate, I feel like there is still urine in my bladder but I can't go anymore. Five or ten minutes later I have to go again, then I feel better. This accurs even at bed time,which is why I try going to bed late around midnight, so I can sleep through the night. This has being accuring for the last six months. Help please!

Brief Answer:
You may have prostate symptoms.

Detailed Answer:
Good Day!

I believe you are suffering from urinary symptoms from the prostate gland. It is a small organ found below the urinary bladder and as men ages the prostate gland also grows thereby impeding urinary flow. Common symptoms would be a feeling of inadequate void, urinary frequency , weak stream and getting up at night to urinate (nocturia).

Good news is that prostate are usually treated medically 80% of the time with drugs that would relax the prostate and some drugs to decrease its size? But before treatment you may need to get a urinalysis and an ultrasound of the prostate to determine its size. It is also important to seek urology consult so the doctor can feel your prostate for any lumps and masses.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: WWW.WWWW.WW I would gladly help you. Best wishes.
