Space Oddity

Another cluster of odd presentations; I can't quite figure these guys out either.

Invariably young males, usually adolescent, all complaining of lower abdominal pain, and an inability to urinate. All claim not to have pee'd for at least 24 hours. None have a distended bl;adder, nor any obvious cause for retention, nor any renal impairment, as measured biochemically.

Few, if any, have signs of infection, although I suppose an STI must be high on the list.

What I can't quite figure is that tey MUST have been urinating, and yet swear blind that they haven't.

One of us must be wrong...

It can't be me, can it?
