Thanks for the information. This kind of pattern is usually seen in urinary infection and you do have urgency and frequency. You can visit your doctor to do a urine test to confirm the diagnosis and prescribe antibiotics to get rid of infection. In the mean time, you can drink adequate water and cranberry juice to ease it.

If you do not pass your urine at all for several hours, that would indicate obstruction. But now, most likely it's urinary infection.

Please leave a positive rating by clicking stars on your screen so that I can get the credit for my time with you. If you have any follow-up question,you can reply to this post.

Regards,

Dr. Shah

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
