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
