Dear Dr. XXXXXXX

First of all thank you for your reply Doctor. To add up to how it start to happen, on that day that i need to hold my pee and at one point it feel like the urine or air push backward causing pain and stop which didn't last very long. Afterward, i start to pee often and sometimes i feel like i want to pee but i don't or if i did, then it is little than usual. There is no burning or pain while urinating.

Thank you,
XXXXX
