I urinate every 30min-1hr What is wrong with me?

Hello, for the past 8 years I have been urinating a lot. Usually every 30 minto 1 hour during the day and 4 times during the night.

I am a 26 year old male. There is no pain or discoloration when I urinate.
However, the sesation I get is I cannot fully empty my bladder. It is very annoying/frustrating.

I can feel the stream just shut off. And I know there is more urine left be emptied, I just can't squeeze it out.

WHy is this happening?

I must also tell yuo folks I do have social anxiety issues. I cannot use public urinals, I must be inside a stall. But even at home this happens.

What should I do?

something you can do is literally re-train your bladder. It took me a few months but eventually you will probably need to urinate every 3-4 hours instead... You have to basically start from a point where you urinate every 1 hour, then then for a few days go add 15 minutes or 30 minutes to that... but maintain that for a few days... then you'll be at 2 hours, 3 hours and so on... it should work.

You trained your bladder once before, do it again

Also might be worth getting your prostate checked.

I was dong some more research on the net, could it be my sphincter muscle?

Some people have a condition where the sphincter muscle tightens up b4 all the urine can completely leave the bladder?

This is what it feels like for me, something seems to "shut/close off" the stream. Very interesting.

You could have prostate problems. I would suggest getting checked for prostatitis (it's what young guys get the most).
