First : First of all let me reassure you that you are not dealing with a bladder prolapse. This would be extremely rare in someone your age unless you have had several children; even if this were the case your symptoms are not consistent.

You definitely need to see your doctor for a complete evaluation, testing, and treatment. All the best.
