A 43-year-old male asked:
What can cause urinary retention in the a.m?very difficult to urinate even w/ a full bladder, and takes several minutes 2 evacuate, no other symptoms.

Bladder outlet issue: It is not unusual to have issues emptying your bladder when it is most full, due to overstretching. Recommend discussing this with your physician as an enlarged prostate can also play a role. There are several options to help alleviate the problem once diagnosed, depending on the factors causing it.
