UA showed positive for occult blood, leukocytes. Why is pushing urine out tough?

My UA shows positive for occult blood 3+, leukoctes 3+, WBC 40-50/hpf, protein 3+, RBC 80....does this mean bladder infection or? I have severe suprapubic pressure, feel like everything is swollen (bladder, urethra, etc.). Difficulty pushing urine out, slow stream. I am 64 yr old female. I feel really inflammed. Not true burning, but spasm at end of urination. Throbbing pain.

Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have obstructive urinary symptoms due to Enlarged Prostate which is very common at this age.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done under his guidance.
1) Routine urine test and urine culture
2) Ultrasound scanning of the abdomen to confirm enlarged Prostate.

Further treatment will depend upon final diagnosis .
