    Frequent Urination and Discomfort in Abdomen- not UTI

    I am a 19 year old 240lbs male. I have been having this problem for over a year now, but it really started to worsen when I started university last fall (2018). I constantly feel the urge to pee, including after I’ve just went. I have been to several doctors and one urologist who have determined that I do not have diabetes, STD, UTI, kidney stone, or anything like that. Yet I still feel an extremely frequent urge to urinate. The urologist prescribed to me hydroxyzine and Oxybutinin, diagnosed me with interstitial cystitis (chronic bladder pain). I have stopped taking the oxybutinin which seemed to make it more difficult to urinante. I used to have to urinate roughly one an hour, sometimes more. Taking the hudroxyzine I can typically go two sometimes three hours without urinating, but even those times there is a lingering feeling of discomfort and a worry that I will have to urinate in the middle of something important (classes etc.) Not really sure what to do at this point since the urologist has found nothing significant and multiple doctors have suggested that it may be related to anxiety, yet I feel this urge all of the time and I do not feel anxious. It does not hurt or “burn” when I urinate, but the urge does intensify after I’ve just madturbated, and usually my penis is sore and tender after masturbation. I’m not sure how that could be related to frequency of urination however. Any advice is appreciated, I am a college student who would wish to not have to pee all the time.
