Brief Answer:
Most probably urinary tract infection with possible prostatitis.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
The history of frequent urination, blood in urine and pain in pubic area is indicative of an urinary tract infection with probable involvement of prostate as prostatitis.
I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Give the urine sample for tests of routine, microscopy, culture and sensitivity before antibiotic is started to get a proper diagnosis and helps in further management.
Tests of blood for CBC, kidney functions and PSA.
Ultrasonography of whole abdomen particularly of urogenital system.
Per-rectal digital examination
Any other tests as advised by your Doctor/ Urologist and proper management as per the cause found.

I hope this answer helps you in proper diagnosis and management.
Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.

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?
