Hi all, sorry if this is TMI but don’t know who else to ask. Basically for the last couple of weeks when I go for a wee (not every single time) it feels like there’s still urine stuck in my urethra, almost as if there’s a bung at the end. Takes a few manoeuvres and minutes later for mr to clear. I can then go back 5-10 minutes later and it’s as if I never went in the first place.I have had back pain recently but sent in a Urine sample because i think it’s because of my copaxone (it’s listed as a common side effect) and knew the first thing my nurse would ask is to check for a UTI. It came back clear. My nurse is really hard to contact but starting to wonder if the back pain is due to a lesion which is subsequently causing urine retention or if it’s just coincidence because I’m over thinking it. I’m obviously worried because of the prospect of self catheterisation as a resolution but wanted your opinion before I try get the inevitable appointment. Thank you all x

Is this urinary retention?
