Patient :Hi, I am a 25 year old male and I've had a pretty bad, constant irritation of my urethra for as long as I can remember. It is usually much worse after urinating but still nearly a constant problem. I've noticed that the only thing that gives me relief is if I constantly drink water, keep my bladder full and wait until I'm about to burst before urinating. I constantly feel like I have to urinate but I feel as if the urine is stuck inside my actual penis instead of my bladder unless I do what I just described. I was blood tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia, both negative. I had a prostate exam which came back as normal. The doctor gave me a prescription of Doxycycline to no avail. For the past couple of months I started to notice a very slight, clear discharge while looking into my urethra and it's still there. Nothing has changed and for about a week now I seem to have a little bit yellow discharge protruding from my penis but only in the morning. I went to a primary care physician and he seemed to think it may be trichomoniasis and I just started taking 1/2 of a 500 mg tablet, 3 times daily for 8 days. If this medicine doesn't cure me I may go insane. This problem affects every aspect of my daily life and I can't stand this any longer.
