General & Family Physician 's  Response
Frequent urination, every 10 mins (unmarried female)- Is a symptom of may be urinary tract infection.

If you do not have any other complaints and ur urine test, revealed only trace albumin. Then you need to consult a urologist. However kidney damage normally presents with decreased urination (or absent urination). In your case and your age it is highly unlikely that would have occurred.

My mom is 64 years old and recently she has done urine test and it showed she has traces of albumin in her urine , 2 months back she has done urine test but during that time no traces of albumin were shown. My mom has diabetes but it s under control also she has blood pressure but she is taking medicine for that as well.We went to the doctore 3 months back beacuse she is having some problem with her digestive system.The doctor said it s because of gastric and he prescribed some medicine for her which she is still taking.The blood test was done and it showed she has anaemia and for that the doctor suggested to take iron tablets for 3 months.When 3 months back the urine test was done no traces of albumin was found but on the 2nd test traces showed.My concern is that is it due to the medicines and if anyone has traces of albumin in urine does that mean the kidney is affected ? Please reply me . I am very much concerned. - Annie

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?
