Hi everyone This website is kind of a last resort

Patient : Hi everyone. This website is kind of a last resort because I really don't know what to do. I'm 22, female, mostly healthy but have ibs flares from time to time. Recently I have had an uncomfortable sensation in what I believe is my urethra. It's like pressure to urinate, or feels like something is stuck there. I don't really know how to explain it. I don't need to go to the toilet, I don't feel full in my bladder or any pressure there. The only way I can describe it is: imagine you're urinating and you make yourself stop halfway through, you're holding it in. This is what it feels like all of the time. Like its fighting to be released (lol). I'm always crossing my legs/ adjusting my position until it's unbearable and go to pee, but nothing really comes out because like I said not my bladder. I'm reaching breaking point and feeling really suicidal because of it. I can barely sleep because it's so annoying, I have university finals coming up, I can't sit through lectures. I cry every night. I can't go on like this for much longer so please please help!!
