Hi all its me again
I regularly experience a situation however its happened both last night and tonight and has been absolutely unbearable.
the way it generally goes perhaps once or twice a month is as follows
ill go to the bathroom to urinate and instead of it being a brief ten second affair it is instead a half hour ordeal leaving me almost crying in pain where maybe half of my bladder will empty followed by extreme discomfort as the rest of my bladder will slowly empty a few drops at a time each feeling as if its a red hot nail passing through my urethra
it generally takes a mix of straining and relaxing to empty my bladder to the point where Im comfortable enough to leave the bathroom however its never a case of 100% comfort most of the time when this happens I still feel the intense need to urinate and am basically limping due to how sore my genitals are. in those cases it boils down to me not caring any more whether I wet my pants as I just want to leave the bathroom and have the pain stop
I have talked with my urologist about this briefly in the past however nothing has been found wrong with my prostate urethra or bladder via cystoscopy i am not seeing my urologist again until my urodynamic testing which is still several months away.
I do have an appointment with my regular doctor on the 8th where I intend to bring this up among a number of other things.
I must emphasize this is most likely not an infection after experiencing it several times in the past I've seen doctors and been tested and each time it has come back negative for infection with all levels normal
I drink 3 litres of water each day as well for reference
once more this is not a very common occurrence instead happening only every few weeks on average its just that when it does happen it is absolute hell
I strongly apologize for the wall of text this is partly just me venting however if anyone here has experienced anything like this in the past or has any advice I would very much appreciate your posts.
If anyone wants anymore information on my current state ive made several other posts on this forum and welcome any replies to them as well

(an important addendum when this happens it is not unheard of for me to experience pain in my lower abdomen above my genitals which is believe is coming from my bladder however I have at no point experienced back painwhile im typing this i may as well also mention that last week I experienced a day where it felt like a sword was being thrust through my lower abdomen urination was painful and it was very painful to so much as touch my lower abdomen however that seems to have been an isolated event. ill also add that I do not delay using the bathroom in lieu of holding it for long periods of time as simply put I cannot when i get the urge to go i do not usually have more than a few minutes unless its a case where im suffering an accident which usually involves significantly less warning than usual.)
