I've had urinary problems for months,(probably since about July) I've had a constant feeling of burning when I urinate so thinking I was on the verge of a uti I would drink lots of water and take cranberry tablets/cystitis sachets but the symptoms wouldn't improve. I eventually decided to go to the doctors as I was completely fed up and I was given an antibiotic for a uti, I've now had 3 antibiotics and symptoms haven't improved. My doctor also says my urine culture has came back clear everytime so I don't even have a uti, I've also been tested for every sti, bacterial/fungal infections and everything has come back clear. Over the last month my symptoms have also worsened where I am now feeling shooting/sharp pains in what I think is my urethra, it's not a constant pain but can come on at anytime when I'm walking, sitting, lying down etc and it's a horrible feeling that is definitely not normal. I've been given tablets from my doctor for an overactive bladder but I don't have any problems going to the toilet I just feel a burning pain before I urinate along with the shooting pains in my urethra every so often. I'm a 29yr old female and I'm at my wits end, my doctor doesn't seem to have a clue what's wrong and it's affecting every part of my life. I spent my whole Christmas break in my pyjamas not wanting to leave my house because I was miserable and my poor husband hasn't been getting any physical attention recently. Has anyone experience this before? A burning sensation before urinating and shooting/sharp pains in urethra? Any help would be much appreciated!!
