For the past week Ive had a significant amount of hesitation when I need to go pee. It all started last week, i held my pee for three hours, got home, evacuated and all that good stuff. A couple days later, i noticed all my stool was wet, still kindof is. Eventually my stool will be solid, but it will be small cookiedough balls rather than long healthy length. Ive been having problems passing gas, been feeling bloated. Now when I pee, i feel like it takes forever to get it to come out, keep a good constant stream. I have to push it get it all out! And then im back in there emptying out the rest, which is just dribbling. I pee a lot more at night now, upwards of 4 or five times, just at night! When I pee before bed and wake up in the morning with a full bladder, that doesnt hurt but its just very very full and annoying. I dont really have anything else wrong. Occasionaly I'll have palpatiations (or spams) of the esophagus from my acid reflux, but that is about it. What should I do? Is this symptoms of a bad prostate? I am really stressed out.

I am only 18, i dont know why this is happening so young!

Anytime there's a sudden change in urine or bowel habits it should be investigated by a doctor.  I'd suggest you make an appointment with your doctor (or visit a walk in clinic if you have those) and tell him/her exactly what you just told us in your post.

Good Luck!!

Morning Pops,
I'd take Lawink's advice. Of what little experience I have since being diagnosed, it's usually two or more factors that should alert one that there is a potential problem. My issues began several years ago with a weak urine stream and frequency of urination which were indications of an enlarged prostate. However, my PSA levels remained relatively low. There was no real alarm until my primary doc thought he felt something when he did a digital exam. Those two factors caused him to recommend a biopsy 2.5 years ago. The biopsy found nothing conclusive, but..... they said there were suspicious areas on the prostate. That caused me to get the biopsy redone again. And, sure enough, they found two malignancies.
Not being a doctor I'd strongly recommend you have a doctor look into this ASAP. You need to have some basic tests done of you have any concerns.
