I'm 51 now. But from the age of 45 I've had all the symptoms listed on this site - not being able to wee properly in all the ways. Plus lower back pain but I do have actual back issues.
The first PSA was normal and my GP was quite unworried.
But still I could not wee.
Next year I asked about getting it done again and he agreed but was not worried.
My symptoms were/are quite bad so I pressed to get something (?) done. I was prescribed Tamulosin which makes me piss like a racehorse but reacts with some of my other meds to give me double double orthostatic hypotension. So I don't use it all the time.
So... Does the fact that the Tamulosin works mean that they are correct, treating this as something non sinister?
And am I being over worried - I insisted on a DRE not long ago as I could not believe after 6 years of these issues no one had even suggested it. Should I just forget about it and wait till I am pissing blood?
I just don't know?
