Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam , Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that the problem that you are telling seems innocent that is no pathology behind it . It happens that when you are holding the urine for long time like you say since whole night the bladder becomes distended and then when you empty it the flow is less initially then gradually picks up and requires straining also . Since you get these symptoms in morning rest of day is normal that means there is no pathology as otherwise symptoms would persist all the day . Plus all your reports are normal .So it seems nothing is worrying . Avoid drinking water at bedtime . Take care. Dr. Shruti

Dr. Chandan, I have had burning with urination and bowel movements for nearly 4 months with continuous testicle pain. I have been on everything from Cipro to Livo and everything in between. I am currently undergoing medicine directly placed in my bladder via catheter . Over the past two weeks all of my other pains have been joined by horrible back pain and the sensation of a swollen abdomen. I must tell you as well, that I have had three rounds of labs (blood, urine and std) and everything always comes back with everything in range. I am so frustrated that I can be in so much pain with now visual signs of infection. What is wrong with me?

Hi I lost my virginity about 2 weeks ago and it was the fifth day of my period. I m really different even 2 weeks later. My partner and I first tried with a condom and I only allowed him to put the head in because I was still afriad. He then took of the condom and went to the bathroom to urinate. He came back and we tried it again without a condom. This time he did not enter but rubbed my vagina . The day after i felt really weird. Irregular bowel movements , diarrhea , pressure on my lower abdomen and bladder . My questions are could I be pregnant and what is going on with my body?

Hi, I m a 33 yr old female, 117 lbs, and have been on antibiotics for about 1 1/2 weeks due to a sinus infection and bladder infection- I still feel very bad. I feel weak, my heart is beating irregularly, having hard time breathing comfortably, and I have upper back pain and muscle spasms.
