See remark: Tight bladder neck is not common at your age .Have you had anytime venereal disease ,history of stricture? Are both testicles sore? If they are not swollen wear a tight jockey shorts use any over the counter pain medicine for inflammation twice a day for 5 days. In the meantime ,I'm afraid you may have to see a urologist .You need a physical exam / scoping your urinary channel. Good luck
