Question: My 15 year old son started conditioning last week for the upcoming soccer season. He has to run at least 2 miles a day. During the run, he feels the strong need to urinate even though he did before the run. He has to be able to run the 2 miles in a certain amount of time to pass a test to make the team. After he stops running and walks for a while the sensation goes away. What could cause this?

Welcome to XXXXXXX
I understand your problem and worry. It is nice that he is playing soccer at a good level.
Most probably, he might not have emptied his bladder fully, which can happen in anxious situations.
Double void can help. That is trying to pass urine second time immediately after passing the first time.
Also, if it is an early morning session, fluid restriction overnight and early morning should help.
Whenever time permits, an ultrasound scan to check for RESIDUAL URINE may be done to check if he retains anything in the bladder after passing urine. If so further steps can be taken by consulting a urologist.
Wishing him good health,

I have the following symptoms and am trying to obtain a diagnosis that is correct for all of these: they are as follows: heart arrhythmia, bladder incontinence (very severe that it pours out of me at times), urinary frequency at night, problems breathing when I lie flat, (I sleep with a wedge), shortness of breath, pitting edema in left leg and now in right calf and ankle area, severe coughing at times usually severe with a gagging reflex, a slightly enlarged right heart valve, swooshing in my body when I sit down or arise, weakness in my lower legs or extremities, swelling in my abdomen and ankles, weight gain especially around the stomach and headaches. I was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia already, sleep apnea, fibromyalgia, obstructive breathing disease, however, with the severe bladder and urinary problems, could these be related to a chronic kidney disease with the heart issues as well? I also noticed that I have had severe mood swings, confusion, weakness, sometimes speaking a different language. My grandparents were from Poland, Bohemia and the Czech area and had heart disease and my grandmother had kidney failure. I was injured back in 2004 and had knee surgery along with a blood clot that was removed at that time. I previously had a gushing feeling of warmth going up my spine and then it would go up through the back of my head and then dissipate. Could there signs of a blood clot somewhere?

82 year old male had inguinal hernia surgery and was unable to urinate after surgery. He was sent home 5 hrs after surgery with a catheter. (Initial catheter was removed and then put a larger catheter)

Later that night, hemorraging from penis and pain in the groin area. Almost 5 weeks later,he is still in the hospital with an extremely swollen stomach, and they are constantly flushing his system because of blood clots that clog the catheter and produce extreme pain. (He has had numerous catheters inserted and re-inserted up to around size 24) He is in a lot of discomfort, still bleeding(had to have 1 unit of blood), still gets blood clots in the catheter, no appetite because of his situation, and his stomach is so large it looks like he is pregnant. What test do doctors use to determine where all the blood is coming from? Could his uretha or bladder been punctured to be causing all the blood loss?
