Brief Answer:
How often do you urinate? How much urine volume?

Detailed Answer:

I will like to ask a few questions before taking a stand on this.

1. Has there been a recent changes in your urination pattern?
2. Is there any pain during urination?
3. Do you urinate often in small volumes?
4. For how long has this been going on?

I await these responses and promise to revert to you as soon as i get these requested details with insights on your symptoms and helpful guidance on how to address it.

My problem has been going on for several weeks and has become a concern. Why doesn't it go away? There has been no change in frequency of urination or volume. I drink a glass of water each time I take medication and I take medication 5 times each day (50 mg metoprolol tartrate at 7 am, 3 pm and 11 pm; 75 mg clopidogrel at 9 am and 81 mg aspirin at 9 pm). Seldom drink water in between. I only weigh about 120 lbs. I notice the irritation at the end of voiding - there is no "stinging" sensation, just mild pain that ends as soon as my mind focuses on something else and does not return until the next urination event. I usually void about an hour after I drink water and I make sure I take in more water at 11 pm and usually void twice more after bedtime.

Brief Answer:
Observe only at this time!

Detailed Answer:

I'd recommend you observe only at this time. There is nothing concerning at this time about the irritation. It doesn’t suggest an infection or anything else concerning at this time.

Keep me updated on how this goes and if there are any changes, kindly let me know.

Until next, I wish you well.

Thank you very much. I think that I've finally connected the dots - an incident that occurred when I got in my car. Pubic hair caught under my foreskin might have caused a small cut akin to a paper cut. The pain was intense for an instant. I have not been circumcised. No irritation this morning. Hopefully, this is the end of this chapter. Thanks again.
