Q.

Urinary tract problem

every now and then I have an urgent need to pee and nothing happens. I drink approx cup of water and everything is back to normal. Is it possible to have an empty bladder and still get an urgent need to urinate? I am 71 and also have PPMS for 18 years. I also have a major bowel problem and my poo comes out a solid (v large ) lumpvery painful to pass

It is possible to have an empty bladder, and have an urgent need to urinate.

You need a basic assessment in the form of a urine dipstix and an ultrasound.
Your bowel issue may be aggravating the bladder trouble.
