'male with urge to urinate but can''t. What is the remedy?'
Urgency, the feeling of needing to urinate, is usually the result of a full bladder. But in cases of an overactive bladder, or bladder irritation, the sensation of needing to urinate may not signal a full bladder. An irritated bladder may signal the need to urinate when, in fact the bladder is actually empty.
A visit with a urologist is recommended for an evaluation.
