Prostatitis Forum & Social Network

Acute and chronic prostatitis discussion. Arnon Krongrad, MD, moderator.

Good Evening Everyone,

Has anyone noticed that holding back from urination for too long can cause a flare?  I noticed the past two nights I was in a deep sleep and when I awoke it felt as if I had held my bladder too long.  Then, today, I was on the road for work and I held my urine in too long again, and each time, the symptoms flared worse and worse. 

Wow, I was doing so well for a while, and now, I feel like I literally have a golf ball, or even lacrosse ball, in my rectum!!!  Sorry to be graphic; it just has been a while since I felt pain, and the rectum feeling is not something that typically gets me too bad, even when I have flares....
