Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have dribbling of urine all night since 4 days,You have been taking Tomsulosin for enlarged prostate.

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Have you done Ultrasound Scanning of abdomen and pelvis recently to see status of Enlarged prostate ?
2) Do you get pain in abdomen? or Do you have sensation of fullness of bladder?
3) Do you have urgency to pass urine?

Your symptoms are mostly due to Chronic Retention of Urine with Over Flow Incontinence.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine Routine and Culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis with specific mention of pre and post void urine volume.

If it is embarrassing your daily life I would suggest you to put urethral catheter to drain the bladder continuously so that you will not need to go to pass urine frequently.

Further treatment will depend upon the results of tests and final diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
Dr.Patil.

I am a 29 year old male and for the past couple of weeks I've been having issues when I urinate and it's starting to worry me. I constantly have to push, or strain, in order to urinate. If I don't push when attempting to urinate then my urine just trickles out or doesn't come out at all plus it takes a really long time for me to start urinating and when I finally do start to urinate for some reason it will stop then go then stop again. Also it feels like I was not able to empty my bladder completely. I'm also suffering from the constant urge to urinate and urinary frequency. It feels like I always have the urge to urinate. I have to get up and urinate 3 or 4 times at night. My urine looks a little darker than normal, but it's not cloudy nor does it smell. It kinda burns when I urinate. It's like an odd feeling. When I urinate I feel this burning, tingling, pins and needles sensation. I don't know how to explain it. All of these urinary issues that I'm having is driving me crazy. I never had a bladder or urinary tract infection before. I passed kidney stones about a year ago and they were small. I was wondering what might be the cause of all these urinary problems. Why do I have to strain all the time and why do I have this constant urge to urinate? Do I have a a UTI or some other type of infection?

Hi,
I noticed a few red brown specks after I urinated this morning for the first time. There was no pain, I haven't been having pain in the lower back, at least not from my kidneys. I am scheduled to have a procedure done on March 16th concerning tacking up the urethra leading to the bladder to prevent stress incontinence. Does the specks mean I have an UTI trying to get started?
