I have been dealing with this for over 5 years now. I think I have a bit of a shy bladder or something, I feel no need to go when I'm out someplace busy, or walking, or whatever. Suddenly the urge will hit me when I enter a more secluded place.
The problem is, it hurts quite a bit to hold it for long once It gets to this stage. I've been trying to find out more about what this could be; I figured this would be the best place to ask.
Anyway, the pain will get more and more intense until I finally pee. If I don't make it there fast enough, the pain can last for hours after. If I get there fast enough though it will go away within a few minutes at most.
I went to the hospital for this once a year ago because it was particularly bad.
I couldn't sleep and was afraid it was serious. The area the pain is in when this happens is somewhere just above where my bladder would be, but centered more on the left side. Never the right side.
Anyway I got to the hospital and about 6 hours later the pain finally left. I was a little bit nervous to be there, so when the pain had left, I left. For a few days
after the area was still a little sore.
This still occurs less painfully when I have a bit of a full bladder. What could this be?
