Does urine retention usually cause many symptoms?

Does urine retention usually cause many symptoms?

Yes: Retention can be partial or complete. Obviously if one cannot void at all the bladder can only stretch so far until it becomes very painful.

Here are some ...: Nowadays, over and unnecessarily medicating has been commonplace to meet the demand of political correctness and money-making; almost 1/3 of medical visits are for iatrogenic disorders; and less often people will talk about healthy lifestyle without overindulgence and obsession as the foundation of all healthcare.
