33 year old male here.
For the last couple months I've been urinating frequently, in relatively small volumes, with no other symptoms. Luckily I had a physical (including blood tests) coming up, and what was found was:
- Normal kidney function
- No STIs or other infection
- No diabetes
- No prostate enlargement
Everything else turned out normal aside from high cholesterol.
Prior to that I was in the ER for abdominal pain (which turned out to have a benign cause). Ultrasounds didn't detect abnormalities in my kidneys or bladder (or other organs), though I imagine they wouldn't detect every possible problem.
But after all this, it occurred to me that while at work I was going to the washroom frequently as an excuse to get away from my desk and the noise around me. While there, I would urinate a bit even if I felt only the faintest urge.
So if I'm now feeling the urge more frequently, could I have accidentally "trained" my bladder to be more active? Is it a bad practice to go even when you don't feel much of an urge? Or is there a possibility there really could be a medical issue behind this?
