Are you having difficulty peeing?

Most of us will, at some stage, have had a problem when peeing. It’s a function that many of us take for granted each day, but when it goes wrong, it can be very upsetting.

Struggling to pee - Find yourself needing to pee and then, when you visit the toilet, nothing, or very little, will come out or find that it’s very difficult for you to start peeing.

Peeing too often - Some people find that they need to use the bathroom very regularly and, for some people, they’ll feel a very urgent need to find a bathroom or get up many times in the night to pee.

Pain when peeing - If you experience a burning sensation or pain when peeing, this could be a sign that you’re dehydrated (especially if your pee is a dark yellow) but it could also be a symptom of other conditions.

Blood in your pee – this one is simple, if you see blood in your pee don’t delay, get an appointment to see  your GP.
