In brief: Try simple solutions

Depending on your age, exam, and other symptoms, you may have an enlarged prostate and/or overactive bladder.
There are medications for either, but start by making sure coffee, chocolate, spicy foods, citrus drinks aren't causing the symptoms and curtail your drinking fluids before bedtime.

In brief: Urinary retention

Urinary retention could be caused by many things, including urinary tract stones, especially bladder stones, infections, prolapsed pelvic floor (dropping of the pelvic support floor for the bladder), constipation, urethral stricture, nervous system problems, or medications (particularly meds for allergies, depression or urinary incontinence).
You should check with your doctor.
